We went after reading several positive reviews on trip advisor but were sorely disappointed...The fish were underwhelming and the water was a little dirty. The best thing about this place was that we didn't have to drive far to get back to the beach. Just skip it.

We stopped here on the way home from Chichen Itza and Coba, and it was our first experience of swimming in a cenote. We were not disappointed! Rented our snorkel gear and off we went. An underwater world that has to be seen to be believed. So many cenotes around this area, it would take a year to see them all. We were here in the late afternoon, and there were only about 4 other people already swimming. I actually don't think you could go wrong with whatever cenote you visit, as long as you add at least one to your itinerary.

A fantastic underground river system to explore for days or even weeks. Decent set up areas and steps all the way to the water. Can get a little crowed when the tour vans show up, but plenty of room for everyone. OK restrooms as well.

Gran Cenote is one of the more famous and beautiful Cenotes around Tulum. It's a short drive (<20 mins) from the main road and it has a good amount of space to swim and look at the otherworldly rock formations and marine life. Highly recommend.
Costs 100 pesos / person for entry - at least that's what they charged foreigners like me.

When the roof collapsed, it formed an island in the middle of this large hole in the ground and that provides the entry point of the wooden steps and ladders that get you into the water. Considering the traffic the water was clear and the two caves make for intriguing swimming. Off both sides, you can see the caves going down further, with stalagtites haning from the celings. One cave goes all the way though to another opening to the sky and has enough clearance to easily swim through to a resting and entry area. We have more fun than expected from the significant number of tourists attending. Definitely worth the money.
