Short drive from Akumal, just past Xelha on the inland side, is Dos Ojos cenote. Stop at the entrance to buy tickets... either per person US$10 if you have snorkels, or pay US$40 for entrance, snorkel and guide. We had snorkels already so paid US$20, then drove slowly on the dusty dirt rode for 2 miles. Don't walk it. Finally get to an open dirt parking lot where you enter the grounds. Primitive, no real food, but there are clean bathrooms, changing area, and a couple huts to rent a locker, flashlight, lifevest, fins etc if desired. We had water shoes and snorkels, so just rented a locker. Follow the signs to Ojo1 or 2. Ojo 1 is ok, but Ojo 2 is much bigger, multiple entrances, none of which disappoint. Almost a complete ring of a cave, area to sit, dry out, or for non-water people to watch or wait. Water was warmer than expected in January, maybe 65. Thought we'd only be able to last a few minutes, but did not get cold until after an hour. Stunningly clear water, fascinating experience. A few fish, but the sight of seeing a huge cave underwater beneath your feet is amazing. One of the highlights of the trip. Great to do on the way back from a morning trip to one of the ruins.
