A few miles from Chichen Itza, but much less visited by tour buses. You can swim in the crystal clear blue water and watch the swallows zoom around above your head. We were the only visitors for over an hour. Changing rooms, bathrooms and a...More

Boring and expensive. This cenote is nothing special, but is very expensive (70 peses) and crowdy. If they would not require floating jacket, it would be ok. But with it is boring. You can not do anything, you just float and you are not able...More

This Cenote was part of our tour. I didn’t plan on swimming but decided it may be my only chance to do it ever so I went for it. Wonderful decision was just refreshing and just amazing experience. Beautiful spot definitely stop here.

After a few hours in Chichen Itza, we were done. That place is wonderful, but the crowds and heat got to us, so we went to this cenote to cool down. This is a very nice swimming hole. It has pretty good facilities and a...More

One of the must-do experiences in the Yucatan is to swim in a “cenote” a feature typical of limestone karst landscape; a well or sinkhole formed when the roof of an underground water-filled cavern collapses. There are several classifications of cenotes depending on the extent...More

A truly magical spot. We’ve been to more than 20 Cenotes and this is in my top three. A combination of the site, setting, water and facilities make this a wonderful place to visit.

Dear traveling friend. The cenote we went to was NOT handicapped accessible as far as I could tell and you actually had to manage some tricky steps to get into the cenote. I would highly recommend that you talk to any of... More
