We rented a car from Puerto Morelos and needed some place to kill some time. Since this was on the way, it worked out very well. We arrived around noon and there were maybe 5 other people here. The lack of a crowd made it a better experience. It's really a Mom and Pop (Mama Y Papa?) operation. It was nice to walk the grounds afterwards. Google maps will get you close but not entirely accurate. The signs are easy to follow.

Really great, generally quiet cenote.
Great for swimming and pictures.
Prices are higher than listed online. 100peso for adults to 30peso for kids. Under 5 free. Well worth it - even if a tour group did crash our experience.
Great place to have some lunch and a swim. Beautiful blue water, not as cold as some others.

Gorgeous place, still very natural. I hope it stays that way. We spent a couple of hours in the cenote and were alone most of the time. We only saw 2 kids in charge of the place who are the cutest :). If you visit, please keep it clean and quite, is the charm of the place.

I hesitate to tell you how lovely this was because I don’t want it overrun by crowds, but this spot (and the Mayan family that preserve it) deserve a little more attention. They provide clean changing rooms, bathrooms, and a sturdy staircase down into the cave/cenote to a niece platform with a ladder into the water. (...though we were advised to jump in from the platform and I’m glad we did.) We shared the crystal clear and tolerably cool water with no one but a few timid small black catfish. Be sure to look up to see the stalagtites, and to see the sky through seven or eight openings in the ceiling. And if your first plunge isn’t enough, try the diving platform built against the far wall of the cave!

Fans of cenote swimming will really appreciate Xux Ha. The family who owns the land have made a huge effort and have built clean and new changing rooms, a lovely out door sink area to freshen up after your swim and have a little shop under a palapa where they sell Mayan crafts. They are native Mayan speakers who also speak Spanish and are happy to share information, folk lore and - when we were there - their fresh fruit with us! The cenote is about 30 meters down and you access it by walking down some very secure steps. There is a very large platform with benches where you can leave your bags and towels and even have a picnic in the cool shade. There are various ladders for entering the water as well as a 3 meter jumping platform. There is even a paddle boat! The trees and roots grow down to the water and you can watch beautiful birds in the trees. We loved this cenote - it's huge and unique and the family who runs it directly benefits from the modest entry fee of 50 pesos per person. A must! The cenote is marked with a sign and a palapa with bunting. On highway 180 as you leave Valladolid it's about 10 minutes from the town on the right. If you hit Km 177 you have passed it. The good gravel road takes you 650 meters to a large, shady car park area and it's a short and delightful walk through the jungle to get to the cenote.

This cenote is a must! Having been in Cobá (nearby ruins) and Valladolid (beautiful Colonial city) earlier during the day on a very hot day, Xux-Ha was a welcome stop just by the highway.

Alex (pictured) was our 10-year-old guide who was simply fabulous! Really friendly, witty and a great playmate for our kids!

The cenote is beautiful and refreshing. Don’t miss out!

This less-visited, but easy-to-access cenote is run by a coop of locals and is absolutely beautiful. It's a cavern with a small opening to let in light and the 2 young "tour guides" (brothers age 9 and 10) were delightful, showing our kids the best places to dive and making themselves understood despite the language barrier.
Easy drive from Valladolid and a wonderful stop if you're heading in to Vallodolid from the east on the free highway as we were.

Beautiful underground cenote with cristal clear and refreshing water. The farming community opened this cenote to the public at the end of 2017. They maintain the location, which has bathrooms and a changing place. They built a solid staircase (very well built) that descends 60 ft. (18 m) to reach the water. A central opening (approx. 10 ft. -3 m. in diameter) at the top provides great illumination.

The previous review was spot on! An amazing Cenote worth the time! Carlos was very patient with us as we spoke no Spanish, but we all sure enjoyed communicating nonetheless! Make sure you take the time to stop here, a true undiscovered gem!! (And the washrooms/changing area were SO clean!!)

After enduring the relentless crowds at Chichen Itza non of us (4 friends) wanted to go to a busy cenote. Thanks to the glowing reviews on here highlighting how peaceful it was, we decided to give it a shot. It lived up to expectations in every way, we shared it with another group of 4 for 15 mins as they were on their way out, then we had it to ourselves until we left over an hour later.

Beautiful, refreshing, fun, QUIET and all of the sum of 75 pesos a person. What a win!
