It is somewhat hard to find, but our TomTom navigation system could find the cenote by its name and brought us there. Be sure to leave Hwy 261 and follow sign to Abalá. Just follow this road and eventually you will see a sign for...More

This is a lovely and isolated cenote. Bring a pair of googles so you can see beneath the water. Like others mentioned, a long dirt road to get there. It’s 30 pesos per tourist or local. Other cenotes charge less for locals. There was one...More

You have to drive down a pretty long dirt road to get there, but it is well worth it. The cenote is beautiful and there will probably only be a hand full of other tourists around. Lovely to swim in the water looking up at...More

This is a spectacular cenote. Stunningly beautiful water, perfect temperature and simply magical. Previous posts mentioned the challenge of finding the dirt road past Abala, but there is now a sign. The dirt road is very bumpy but we made it in a not great...More

This is probably my favorite cenote. It's beautiful and beyond this world! The water is crystal clear. I just can't describe how beautiful the cenote is... you have to see if for yourself. I don't remember the entrance fee but it wasn't too expensive as...More
