Easy to get to by cycle from Valladolid. A beautiful cenote, area around it is over touristy imo. Definitely worth visiting.

Out of the many cenotes we visited X’Keken is the most amazing for us. The real cave and underground experience with the light coming in through a small hole. Fantastic!

This was beautiful, the water was cold but clear. The stallectites were amazing. Definitely worth swimming in both cenotes.

Very well developed cenote. Unfortunately too many tourist shops but otherwise clean. Showers are available. Good accessibility from the street.

We were glad we paid to see both the cenotes at Dzitnup. This one was a little different with the stalactites.

This cenote is a great place to visit after you tour Chichen Itza. The cool clear waters are revitalizing and refreshing. They have a nice Reaturant and changing areas. Absolutely beautiful!

I visited this cenote, and Samula across the street about 20 years ago, and they were my first cenote experiences. I still love Xkeken (Dtznup) as a beautiful cave. It’s just “way cool.” Samula, across the street is great also. You should buy the ticket...More

It says 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Not sure how tightly they adhere to that. Seems like we were there a bit later than 5:00 pm and no one kicked us out.
