Possibly the most famous of the cenotes near Tulum. It is well prepared with paths and stairways and caters to both scuba divers and snorkellers

amazing place, the bat cave is breathtaking. do take a guide, it is worth it! two hours of snorkling passed like a breeze, the cenote is scary and wonderful at the same time. the water is full of minerals, which are really good for your skin!

Love the caves here. The water here is probably one of the cleanest and most refreshing water I have ever dipped into.

The bat cave was amazing too! I was worried it would be teaming with bats but it's not too bad. Enough to see a few, not walls of bats huddling next to each other.

Take the tour or rent a snorkel and find your own tour. There are some lines under water and if you follow it, you'll find your way around the caves.

Yes, I never knew what a cenote is but after visiting 6 in the area, I liked this one best as a good representation of the formations found in the cenotes. If you have limited time, this is the one to see...

We visited Dos Ojos on the first stop on our cenote-hopping tour around Tulum. We knew beforehand that the cenote offered world-class snorkeling and scuba diving but had also heard that you could pay 100 pesos just to swim in the cenotes. When we arrived at the gate, the staff immediately tried to sell us on an expensive snorkeling tour, which would have allowed access to some of the more remote areas of the cenote (like the bat cave). We decided just to pay the entrance fee of 100 pesos, which allowed us to swim in the first cenote (primero ojo) and part of the second cenote. We hired a locker for 30 pesos and put our stuff in the locker, then handed down to the first cenote. Unfortunately, the first cenote wasn't much to look at and was mostly filled with scuba divers, so we went to the second cenote. There, we enjoyed a nice little swim around the cenote, which had great stalagmites and scenery. The water was relatively warm on the 80 degree day.

Though we ended up enjoying swimming around the second cenote, we were annoyed that you had to pay to hire a guide to access the entire cenote. Ultimately, compared to cenotes like Grand Cenote, Dos Ojos is just not that great if your only interest is in swimming. I have no doubt that the cenote is phenomenal if you want to do more than swimming.
