I did Ik Kil Cenote but this one so much better! Almost empty and much higher jump!! Was so pretty and quiet. Felt so peaceful. Nice view from water looking up! The people here were nice and jumped with me since I got nervous! Jumped 3 times! Definitely go here!!!!

This restaurant was highly recommended by locals. The food was amazing and at very affordable price. if you have lunch in this place, you will have free entrance to the Cenote, attached to it. Great stop if coming back from Chichen Itza on you way back to Cancun.

A pretty much enclosed Cenote. It is possible to Bilay down through the "hole" in the ceiling to the water. This Cenote is better suited to swimmers. As it is fairly deep. We had a fabulous time swimming around, and it was pretty empty, but a bus tour was due. If you find stairs difficult, this might not be for... More

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...
