This cenote is really great for several reasons. 1) It is right in town, about 2 blocks away from the historic center and so easy to get to on foot. No tours or transportation needed if you are staying anywhere in town. 2) It is priced so well! No price gauging on this one even though it is right in town and so convenient. At the time we went, admission was $30 pesos per person for the day. I believe you also get in and out privileges. 3) It is beautiful! The water is clean and of nice color. Sure, there will be a few leaves here or there in the water, but it is part of nature so that is to be expected. 4) It was big enough and pretty enough to provide for comfortable swimming and a great cenote experience. The water is chilly but not too cold, and really welcome on a hot day. We went in the late afternoon and stayed for 2 hours and people came and went. At times there were many other people and at other moments there were very few people. We loved this experience and plan to go back to enjoy it again.

It’s a partially open cenote conveniently located in the middle of town. Entrance cost was very reasonable at only 30 pesos pp and because it’s located in town, I thought it would be super busy and not as nice as others cenotes, but we were pleasantly surprised here and actually enjoyed it over a few others in Valladolid. The water was so refreshing and we would definitely recommend you checking this cenote out :)

Cenote Zaci is conveniently located in the center of Valladolid and it is not expensive to get into. It’s quite large and has multiple places where you can jump off the cliff side into the water. The way that they made the walk way out of stone makes it look natural and is very aesthetically pleasing.

Not one of the best cenotes we visited, but it was only MX$30 so worth it. unique in being in town - parking easy but disappointed that they wanted to charge extra for using the changing room! Lots of steps down to the walk-in entrance (which was slippery and slightly difficult to use) or you can jump from various different heights. Not as special or magical as other cenotes - good restaurant on site and I believe if you'd eaten in the restaurant then your admission to the cenote would have been free.

This cenote is conveniently located in the town center. Beautiful site to visit. A must see if you are in the area. Very affordable. Same price whether you choose to swim or not. We visited this cenote last year but did not swim. I thought about it all year. This time, I swam. It was an awesome experience. We rented life jackets. Well worth the few dollars. If you eat first in the restaurant on site, entry to the cenote is included.

As of November 18, 2021 the cenote is closed but the restaurant is open and if you’re early enough you can get a table overlooking the cenote. This cenote is by far one of the best and most beautiful cenotes’ in Mexico and sits within the city of Viadolid within walking distance from town centro. The restaurant is average price with good quality food. Come here and enjoy but a warning is you will not want to leave.

Visiting Cenote Zaci was an incredible surprise with our Airbnb Adventure. I loved that it is in the center of town and easy to walk to. The cenote is incredible and relaxing to spend hours in. I loved jumping from the sides as well. I recommend visiting low season or when less people

This was a good stop in Valladolid, it is in middle of town and a great spot. If you time your visit just right you can eat or drink something at the restaurant and then have free entrance to the cenote. We had lunch and the food was really good as was the service.

This cenote is right in the middle of Valladolid and probably as a consequence of this it was pretty busy when we visited. It was by far our least favourite of the cenotes we visited as it is less beautiful and more crowded than the others.However, at with an entry fee of just 35pesos what have you got to lose if you are staying in Valladolid?

Nice cenote in the middle of Valladolid. It is near to the market. So it is nice to go to the market and then take a dip. When we were there not many people were there and water was pretty clear. Strangely they did not require a shower to wash of unnatural sunscreen, etc.
