Gorgeous, stunning. So much beauty and while we visited in June (low season) there were quite a few locals spending the day YET this lagoon is so large it did not feel crowded whatsoever. A little more expensive than a cenote visit ($300 pesos) but worth every penny. A local friend of mine came with us and shared all money from this lagoon goes towards the Mayan family that cares for it, to the natural reserve around it, etc. Must must go. See a cenote first and then finish off with the lagoon. Swings nearby, places to set your bags down in the covered shade, have a fresh coconut, swim in the stunning waters. Beautiful beautiful!! Close to Aldea Zama & downtown Tulum too (15min).

So much fun! This is off the beaten path and such a cool spot! It wasn’t busy when we went, there was actually a lot of locals visiting here when we went. A lot of people brought lunch with their families and spent the day there. We spent about 2 hours here and absolutely loved it.

We got there at 8:55 (opens at 9:00), and was one of the first people in which made a huge difference. It was beautiful, and very peaceful…until everyone else arrived (around 10:00) then it’s a bit tourist central.

There are lots of rules, a couple being, you must shower on entry and you are not allowed to wear suncream, this is policed well. So if you have unforgiving skin, all the more the reason to arrival early.

The lagoon is dirty, and overcrowded. We arrived at the lagoon at around 1:30pm, and told that the entrance price was $16 per person. As it was supposedly a area of natural beauty, I paid the entrance fee and proceeded to walk to the lagoon, the first thing that struck me was the number of people with cool boxes, drinks, and food.
When I got to the lagoon, there was no space at all. There was no social distancing or masks. The place was packed on both jetties. I quickly turned round, as I was not going to put myself in danger. The signs stated 50% capacity, however I think the people who are running the lagoon are just money greedy, as it was well and truly over that number.

When I asked for a refund, not six minutes after entering, I was told no refund. I told the now "non-english" speaking attendant, who not ten minutes before was telling me how much he liked England, that it was full and there were no places available. He shrugged his shoulders and refused to refund the money.

I would stay away from the Lagoon, there are so many other things to see in this area, this wouldn't be a miss.

:) Beautiful lagoon with plenty of space for people to swim and relax under the sun. It is very quiet and the water is shallow on most parts. Blue water is usually seen on the shallow bits, and there is a bar next to the water. Some people believe that the sand brings healing results - saw some people spreading sand all over their bodies and then washing it out, repeatedly. The walking paths were layered in wooden panels all around the lagoon which makes it a warmer place due to the accumulated heat, but is also makes it easier to walk around. There were many swings for people to rest on and take photos. The parking lot is a big area and it is included in the price.

:( The water is quite cold and, if the sun hasn't come out, it can get a bit unpleasant as it is very windy. The entrance fee is 100 pesos, which is too much money just for maintenance of the place and keeping control of the coming and going of people. If you'd like to use the bathroom (like for changing, let's say), there's extra cost. The viewing platform is also paid, and, after all, it is not so high (I would its height is around 5 meters or so). Not everyone felt encouraged to go up there to take photos of the lagoon. It is not a good place for snorkeling as there is nothing to see, and I felt that cenotes were much more interesting.

This place is so relaxing and such a great price, only $300MXN for admission and parking. If you can't swim, don't worry because many parts of this lagoon are pretty shallow. You can't swim over the sinkhole part of it (for everyone's safety) and is blocked off for only scuba divers, but it is still very cool to see. There are hammocks and swings for amazing pictures, despite it not being a popular tourist attraction. Many locals come here and you can buy drinks, or even bring your own snacks. This place is a MUST if you're in Tulum.

Nice place to spend the day.
Costs 300 pesos per person (not 100 pesos as I read in some reviews!).
I honestly expected a better infrastructure for such price.
You can’t wear sunscreen (understandable as it’s a Cenote) - but I expected more spots with shades available to the public. If you go on the weekend and spend a few hours there - you will get sun burned!

What a gorgeous, relaxing place to go. It reminded me of a more natural version of the Blue Lagoon in Iceland.

Check the weather forecast before you go....you want to go here when the sun is out.

And keep your expectations in check. This is the place to go for relaxation, and beautiful scenery. Think 'natural spa experience.'

If you're looking to make noise, do cannonballs, look for fish, skip this location. Go to a cenote or beach-side ocean instead.

As others have said, go early because inevitably it gets busier later on, and the 'noisy/cannonball/party/obnoxious/drone-selfie' people arrive.

> The hammocks and swings were fun and relaxing. Dangle your foot/feet over the hammock, into the water, and the fish pedicures will begin.

> Walk closer to the shoreline, and that is where the 'mud experience' takes place. In one spot I stepped in, the smooth & silky sand/mud went all the way up to my knee.

> It is easy to get sun-burned here. There really isn't any shade unless you get out of the water.

This place is a must visit. 300 pesos each and worth it so much more than the cenotes.
This place is stunning. So beautiful, not so busy and such a nice chilled vibe.
I’d recommend taking some snacks and drinks and a book and spending a few hours here relaxing.

I would say there were more than 90% locals here. Lots of families having fun together. There were a dozen free divers in the deep hole. But if you're not a free diver, don't wander into the big hole or you'll get into trouble. Take a view from the tall platform to get perspective. The swings and hammocks were fun too. It was so refreshing to feel the cold water on such a hot day. Everyone was so friendly.
