    This was a really fun cenote experience! I went around 11:30am on a Tuesday and it wasn’t busy at all!

    Doing the tour they offer was great value, and the bay cave is a fun experience!

    Overall I’d say this is a very beautiful cenote to visit, especially if you’re a diver or like to snorkel!

    Abnora (Sky) with Mexicokantours in Tulum was our bicycle tour guide. She spoke excellent English and provided a visual booklet to assist with our understanding of the Mayan ruins and Tulum in general. The bicycle ride was paced at a speed everyone could match. She exhibited confidence, knowledge, and was very personable. We finished the tour with a swim in a nearby cenote. I highly recommend Mexicokantours on your next trip.

    Had a amazing time in the cenotes! Great experience and the information was fascinating. Our guide Bany was amazing! We would definitely recommend going too this cenote and experience it yourself.

    The staff not as rude as people have made out but they are extremely picky for no real reason - they asked us the move the car less than a metre for no reason and we couldn’t use a note because of a small rip.

    However the cenote was fun and one of the better ones we went to. Wasn’t as expensive as I’d thought just pay in pesos. Lots of turtles here and we saw one lay her eggs so that was a great experience.

    If you look out at the water instead of the development behind you this place is breathtaking. Such amazing colors!

    This place is a must visit. 300 pesos each and worth it so much more than the cenotes.
    This place is stunning. So beautiful, not so busy and such a nice chilled vibe.
    I’d recommend taking some snacks and drinks and a book and spending a few hours here relaxing.

    Very popular place during spring break, not just students. Much has changed and grown in the four years I've been away. Lots of bars! There are several guys to go snorkeling with. Prices seemed to hold steady, $20, or I got a deal because I was near the boat as they were loading up 8 others. Prepare to get splashed on rough or windy days. Wish we were allowed more time, maybe it was just are group?

    Casa is a nice dive. A little cave and some roots hanging above. Strong current though, so a guide is recommended (if not compulsory).

    It seems that it costs to use your own camera, which is weird. I didn't have one, do I'm not sure.

    Incredible place. We bought the tour, I highly recommend it. We hiked the jungle with a knowledgeable guide, ziplines over a bright blue lake, saw sleeping howler monkeys, and swam in a cave cenote that was once a place the Mayans sacrificed people in! It is dark, but apparently the floor is filled with the skulls of Mayan ancestors. So cool! Would go again

    Definitely a very unique beach, as the Mayans ruins overlook the entire beach. It wasn't possible to go on it though due to the newest covid restrictions.

    Although Chichen Itza is far more famous and bigger, the Tulum dramatic position on the cliff edge above the turquoise sea is unbeatable.
    The site is easy reachable from PDC in around an hour, and from Cancun in less than 2 hrs.
    For detailed plan and tips on how to visit on your own, please read my review about the Tulum archeologic site.
    The only downside is you cannot swim at the Mayan beach beneath the ruins, as it's closed due to Covid.

    We went in July 2020 during Covid, so many places had limited service. Ziggy's Cabana's were great, and had a pretty cool vibe. The food was excellent, and was what you'd expect to pay at a resort, maybe a little less. They used to have a place called Fressco's, but it was closed this trip.

    How we arrived
    - We came around 08:30 am and the "Sign" in front of the Cenote and Google clearly indicate they open at 08.00 am.
    - A young unfriendly guy working there tried to convince us that it opens at 09.00 am. To us it felt more like he was just a lazy sluggard.
    - We had to wait.

    How we tried to pay and paid
    - It's 200 (10 U$) Mexican Pesos per Person – not local (no matter the age)
    - Paying with Credit Card is not possible - like in many places in Mexico.
    - Thanks to another guy, who could even speak English, we could get in even if we didn't have exactly 800 Pesos all in all - cause we thought Credit Card is common nowadays.

    The Cenote
    - Aktun-Ha (Cenote Carwash) is a wonderful place to swim and snorkel.
    - Rock formations, fish and turtles can be seen through the clear water.
    - A deck along the edge is excellent for sunbathing and jumping off into the water.
    - We came early and had the Cenote for ourselves before it got busy (busier).

    Note:
    - There is a crocodile living there. It's friendly though ... we have seen it at the shore a couple of times.

    Final Thoughts:
    - We had a good time all together.
    - Would come again.
    - Would recommend it if 10 $ per Person is not too much for you.

    This was so much fun! Snorkeling in a crystal clear underwater cave. Definitely recommend checking this cenote out. There are so many to choose from in Tulum. Here, we avoided the crowds and our tour guide ( Manuel from Carey Tours) led the way through to the cave walking and then swimming throughout. Loved the experience.
