Cenotes are sinkholes formed in the limestone and they can be found all around Cancun and the Yucatan Peninsula. I only visited this one, but if I come back, I think I will do a Cenote crawl, because they can all be so different but they all seem uniquely beautiful.
“Hubiku” in the Mayan language means either “the Great Lord” or the “Iguana’s nest” (I guess translating Mayan to other languages is not that precise or something like that…). Aside from what the heck it means, this is a beautiful place and definitely worth visiting. Cenote Hubiku is on the road to the famous ruins of Chichen Itza, which are maybe about 20 minutes farther up the road. It took about an hour and a half to 2 hours to get to Hubiku (on a very well-paved and clearly marked highway).
There are many tours that leave from Cancun and surrounding areas that bring you to Hubiku & other nearby locations, but I must say that I recommend that you rent a car and drive here yourself, so you can come at a time when it’s not full of a busload of tourists. It’s also much, much cheaper.
The local Mayan-Mexicans care for the site and they have a wonderful souvenir shop.
When you approach the the entrance of the cenote, you descend a stairway cut into the rock. At the top, you will be dying from the heat and humidity, but with each step you take decending into this underground lagoon, you can feel the temperature decreasing, and at the first sight of the the water, you almost feel cold.
Upon entering into this otherworldly cavern, you notice that there is an orifice above that lets the light stream in to the cavern. The next thing you notice is the immensity of the space and the color of the water, which is a transparent turquoise.
The only sound you notice is the sound of water raining down through the eye of the roof and the echo it makes inside. The cool, fresh air is amazing.

A cenote that is very close to Valladolid. Well organized and groomed for tourists. There normally is a time limit but we were there during pandemic so were allowed to stay beyond the allotted time.

Entry ticket includes meal

A beautiful cenote with gorgeous views when sunlight penetrates the opening.

A local told us to hit this cenote up instead of Zaci in town. WOW this was a major highlight of our trip. This cenote is crystal clear and JAW DROPPING. I personally felt it was way more picturesque than Ik Kil! There was only one family of 3 when we got there and they left pretty quickly. We had the whole place to ourselves swimming for about an hour. Little black catfish swimming around clear as day to see. The rays shining in were breathtaking against the inner cave walls and on the water. There are facilities to change, food, adult beverages, tequila tasting and a small souvenir shop. It was perfect! No tour buses that we saw the several hours we spent there.

There are so many cenotes in Yucatan, and several right around the Valladolid area. If this is the only one you visit, please go visit some others. This is a destination favored by tour buses from Cancun, and as a result, it is a pretty sterile experience. The restaurant is huge, the music loud American pop, and the buffet food was OK. The cenote is very plain - no stalactites or other interesting rock formations. Do yourself a favor and go visit some other cenotes nearby, which may be less developed, but will provide a more authentic Yucatecan experience.

If you want a cenote experience without bus loads of tourists and employees who treat you well, stay away from Cenote Hubiku. There are many other higher quality cenotes around Viadolid and Ek Balam that are easier to get to, the employees treat you much better, and are cheaper without requiring you buy add-ons you don’t want or need. We have been here before and it was nice but the last few times there are at least three buses parked in front and all of those tourists are in the cenote so it is way overcrowded and the employees are rude and inhospitable. Many bus lines and shuttles literally bring people by the bus loads so your chance of a quiet leisurely swim are about zero. Seriously go somewhere else you’ll be treated much better

We booked a tour and this was the first stop. They left us in the gift shop for 25 minutes while they "checked us in" this was a marketing ploy to get us to shop but didn't leave any time to eat, tequila taste, or spend time in the Cenote. The food was decent, the tequila was great and the Cenote even though we didn't get in, it was nice to get pictures. We did notice half of the bus got sick on the way home about an hour or two later so I think whatever bateria in the water made most of my bus mates sick. Get in at your own risk

Great cenote with beautiful views, nice swimming, yammy tequila.
We visited it on excursion after Ek Balam and before we went to Pink Lakes and National Reserve. There we also had pretty good lunch. It was good experience.

Came here as part of our tour. First off COVID safety - it was not crowded (maybe 20 people total and all wearing masks unless swimming). Everyone must shower before swimming. There is a restaurant that is just fine. Nothing spectacular but not bad either. The water is cool but not freezing or unbearable as others say. Pretty much as cool as your typical swimming pool. We spent about an hour and a half total there and that was perfect, wouldn’t have wanted to spend more time there.

Truly a tourist cenote visit, but I didn't mind the slight push to shop or corny photo opts. I thought the cenote (sinkhole) was gorgeous. Water is refreshing and clean. A wade and swim in the cenote was the experience I was looking for. Two hours was right amount of time to swim, do the tequila tasting, stroll on the paths, relax in a hammock and have lunch. I enjoyed the drive by the tiny town of Temozon to arrive to this natural gem in the Yucatan Peninsula.
