Where are some really good cenotes to see around the PDC area? What about xcaret or Xel-ha?

cenotes are fresh water pools - limestone sink holes - some have connected caverns and some eventually lead out to sea. The best cenote is by Casa Cenote, I think its called the blue cenote - its free and very clear. Its in between Playa and Tulum off the 307 highway.
