This place has two Cenotes. The cenote that is actually called X'keken is breathtaking! The drawback to this place is that you will be constantly approached by people who want to offer services that may or may not even be needed. Parking is free but you will be hit for a tip by the parking attendant. The park is open... More

Beautiful cenotes (there's 2 here) breathtaking & unbelievable. We went here for $10 each. Practically free considering other ones are tourist traps at $70 & up.

Interesting, but if you are looking for the best place to spend an afternoon, the cenote Zaci in downtown Valadolid is more picturesque and you can swim there also.

Nice place to swim or just to take a look. The cave can get a bit humid. In one park with Cenote Samula, so get a ticket to visit both.

We had hoped to swim, but my children were put off by the birds flying around simply because they drop their guano in the cenote ( I must look up whether swimming in them is safe for this reason!!) as we saw. So suitably put off, we just looked at the cenote. The shaft of light through the roof hole... More

Pay admission, use the restroom facilities, browse stalls and have something to eat at the restaurant - but be clear that you do NOT require a guide to walk the short, signed distance from the parking lot to the entrance to either Cenote Dznitup or Cenote Samula, both part of the Xkeken complex. There is a lifeguard here, and the... More

A few too many vendors set up in the path from the parking lot to the cenote. It is okay for an underground cenote but we have been to better one.
