Nice Cenote about 2 miles outside of Tulum on way to Coba. Good clean changing area and restrooms. People not real friendly. Better for snorkeling than for scuba diving as not real deep and not a lot of fish to see. 100 peso's ($7) to get in and snorkel gear another $7 or you can just swim around for no extra cost.

We arrived late in the afternoon and questioned if we wanted to go in. We were not allowed to take a look before paying. The facilities were fine....clean changing rooms and bathroom. The cenote area where you could snorkle was small but fun, especilly swimming back into the cave and looking out towards the light. Saw a few fish and turtles. It was not crowded late in the day....but because of the limited space, it could have been difficult to swim if it was packed with people. It was a reasonally priced and OK experience.

Snorkel gear (mask, sorkel, fins) cost $7 to rent. Bring your own if you have it. Also bring water shoes for climbing in and out of the centote. It cost $10 to get in as well.

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)

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.
