It's a partial open cenote. Unfortunately, the day I went (Oct 10, 2020) there was a lot organic debris probably blown in from the recent storm/hurricane. Thankfully, I was only there to take pictures so I avoided swimming with all the floaty stuff. The water was clear and you could see a bunch of little fish around the edges. This wouldn't be my first recommendation for chillin' and spending the day at a cenote, but it's perfectly fine for a hour or two. There is a locker rental at the ticket hut.

It's a beautiful place right in the middle of a great little town. The energy is good, the vibe is laidback. It is a great way to cool off and enjoy the scenery. You don't have to rent a life vest. The water is deep, but there are ropes and ledges at the sides. There are fish and leaves and natural things in the water, so if you are scared of that, you might not enjoy it. But it adds to the experience. You can park near the restaurant, but the lot is small. There is street parking and its also an easy walk from much of central town. It's a must-do!

I visited Cenote Zaci in the morning of March 1, 2020 while staying in Valladolid. Cenote Zaci is a large, semi-open cenote situated a few blocks from the city centre making it a very convenient and easy place to access. I arrived when they opened at 9 am and there were only a few other people, so it was very peaceful and lovely. The entrance fee was only 30 pesos and was paid at the little hut in front of the stairs leading down to the cenote. The cenote was partially covered in a cave area and the stairs and walkway led around the edge of this section and then down to a rock platform at the water's edge. It was gorgeous, with lots of stalactites! I didn't swim in the water but enjoyed taking photos of this naturally beautiful cenote. There were lush plants growing along the rocks inside the open part of the cenote. It was very pretty! The caretakers were cleaning up lots of litter that had been left behind by people the previous day and it was unfortunate that people don't respect the natural beauty of this place and help preserve it. The water was also not as clear as other cenotes I have visited, likely due to pollution from people's sunscreens, as there was no requirement to take a shower prior to swimming. It didn't seem to be as well cared for as other cenotes I have been to, with less of a focus on protecting this natural place. Overall, I enjoyed taking photos here. Worth a visit if you're in the city. It's a pretty cenote, but not my favourite due to the pollution and litter. It didn't have the same magical feeling as other cenotes in the area that I have visited.

We went to about 5 Cenotes in the are. This was our favorite. You can jump from super high and it’s so close to down town we went a few times. Had lunch at the restaurant and it was pretty good. I would recommend
