“Bring Your Snorkels!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Loved Gran Cenote! You absolutely want to bring your snorkel gear! If you don't have any you can rent goggles and a snorkel for $7 per person. If you like to dive they offer for divers to go down into the underwater caves. I don't dive, but we still had plenty to see and had a fun time. (About 1-2 Hours)

“good cenote to visit!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I have been to some cenotes but I liked this a lot. It's a big cenote with 3 entries, it's open and closed. You can rent snorkel equipment (I think it was 75 Pesos). It's beautiful, clean, only a few minutes from Tulum City and you can get easily there by cab.

“Fun visit, but not as big as we hoped”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The most impressive area in this cenote is a portion where you swim into a large, cave-like opening. You do not realize how deep this area is until you put on some goggles and look down - spectacular! The remainder of the cenote is not particularly interesting though and we wish it was a bit larger. Visit other cenotes in the area too to get better fix.

“A unique underwater experience”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Enjoyed visiting one of the only cave-like cenotes in the area. Well-maintained platforms, equipment for rent and pretty grounds to relax or picnic.

“Blue lagoon!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

I went diving in Gran Cenote and it was a highlight of my trip! I went with mexidivers and my guide was awesome:) I took a refresher course and then we explored the tunnels of the cenote. There were much more fish than i expected. TIP: Wear a thick wet-suit because its cold in there. TIP 2: Bring tortillas to give to the racoons that hang by the lifevests. TIP #: Bring some 400 pesos to pay the awesome capera guy that can take your dive pics and video so you can remember the experience forever!
