Just in the middle of the town. We recommend to have a drink at the restaurant from where you have direct access to the cenote.

I went here on a scorching hot summer day to cool off and I was not disappointed. I didn't bother eating at the adjacent restaurant but just intended to relax. The water is very eutrophic (green) but it isn't thick or filled with debris. There are ropes across the water surface as well that you can use as gentle guides.... More

Well worth a visit if you're in town with nothing to do. A couple of big jumping platforms (15m and maybe 7m) and sheltered from the sun as it is largely under cover. Water temp seemed a bit warmer than other Cenotes we visited in the area, which is nice if you don't like the cooler water. Definitely one of... More

We visited this Cenote after already swimming in Xkeken & Samula. It's well worth a visit, right in the city and easy to find! So glad we didn't miss it, it's a beautiful spot and open air so great in the sun. The other two are both underground. I would say that Zaci is less friendly to non swimmers as... More

Cenote Zaci is in the center of town and a must see! It is only two blocks from the main plaza, has a very good restaurant, and admission is free to the cenote if you order something in the restaurant. I have had breakfast and lunch there and have not been disappointed. The cenote will inspire a WOW and you... More

This is a half-covered Cenote which looks as if it was probably fully subterranean at one point but a large section of the roof has now gone. As a result vegetation has been able to move in which makes it a really attractive and natural setting. There is a footpath that takes you right around the water with view points... More

This was a special place to visit. Our guide Edwardo was great and this place was very surreal experience. I would recommend to drink lots of water and wear comfortable shoes if you do the ruins and this in one tour. It was hot and dry. I would not recommend this tour at the time of year we went for...

The town is spectacular, a nice spot in the middle of the way between Cancun and Merida. It's the classical architecture of 1700 Mexican south east. The spectacular thing about the Valladolid is that there is a Cenote downtown !! It has a nice restaurant With top view of the Cenote. Food is really nice bit the most of all... More

I have never eaten in a cenote, and now I have! This is quite the experience. We ate first. Brandon brought us complimentary jicama, beans, sweet potatoes, potatoes, and hot sauces with tostato chips. We ordered cocinita pibil ($105 pesos) and papadzule ($100 pesos), Both were huge orders and both yummy! If you order food you have free entrance into... More

We came here as apart of our tour and it was probably one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen in my entire life. I can't believe there are places like this on earth. I recommend this for everyone! I'd go back in a heart beat!
