While staying in Playa Del Carmen we took a cab to this cenote. Had researched it before hand on TA and thought I had seen the cost was about $100 pesos pp. Well, i was wrong..it is 200 pesos per person. Also we knew to bring our own snorkeling stuff but one of the group did not. It cost her about 50 pesos for the mask and snorkle. However, the guy at the cenote was telling us that the underwater flashlight would be 30 pesos; the locker was 20 pesos and i can't remember what the guide would cost. He told us we could have all the above for 260 pesos each (including the guide) but once we told him we did not need certain things he broke it down to "ala carte" prices.
The first cenote is awesome! it is literally in a cave, which is very dark, but for a couple of lights. When we went there was no one else there (about 11:30am) and it was a little spooky..there were some bats flying around us. It is circular fresh water. Great experience. The second cenote has a small opening which you could see the sky outside. This one was larger then the first but there was alot of parts you really could not swim in. There was heavy "muck" in those places. As long as you stay where the ropes are you will be fine. Really interesting and highly recommended. My only issue is that when we went last year to the Gran Cenote (outside Tulum) it was larger and able to swim all over it for approx 100 pesos. The guy told us the "prices" went up last november.
There is also a dry cave you can explore, we did not as we really just wanted to do swimming.
