Must-see if in the area. A beautiful natural wonder. There were 25 or so divers getting ready to swim, and there were snow flurries in the air! I can imagine these divers can make it very congested in the summer. There should never be a price to see this beauty. Hopefully the review I saw about charging was incorrect.

Our hotel gave us information on this and we were going to pass then we decided to see it. We are glad we did! We walked through a part of the park and came to a lovely round blue pool surrounded by huge rocks. The water is clear a we could see the various markers used by the scuba divers... More

Cannot believe this place. Were lucky to meet some of the divers who travel from long distances to dive here.

Headed to Santa Fe from Amarillo, and this was worth getting off the highway to see. Cute little town, and cool to watch the divers come up and talk about what they seen below. Very blue water, unlike anything I had seen before.

This attraction isn't very well advertised but worth a visit. The water is very clear and you can see pretty far down. There were some scuba divers getting ready to dive down when we were there so it is accessible.

Decided to stop by and see what the Blue Hole was all about. It was an amazing Blue Hole with clear water that was so unexpected to be in the middle of nowhere. We only had one other person was there getting ready to dive, never saw them dive. I only want to see the Blue Hole, not to swim,... More

Stopped here in October. Close to the interstate. Interesting site. There was one guy swimming around with a wet suit on. We looked around and took a few photos, but the water was too cold for me. My son was able to put his feet in the overflow creek, but that was about it. I am sure this place is... More

We stopped off after a waiter recommended this place to us - crystal clear waters and great for a dip after a long drive . Restrooms on site and great pictures- always busy .
