Our second time to this cenote, and was a lot more crowded this year. Still enjoyed the snorkelling though. Crystal clear water, cute little fish and turtles, and swallows and bats flitting about on the ceiling. Get there early to avoid the crowds. Only cost about $10.

Having read good reviews about this location decided to give it a try. Wish we hadn't bothered, it might be fine for " the man from atlantis " brigade, but we were very disappointed by the lack of amenities, considering the cost.
The 'restaurant' turned out to be shop where you could buy a few basic provisions and eat them standing up!
The wild birds turned out to comprise four very sorry looking peacocks in a cage the size of a wendy house.
The staff appeared to spend their time counting their money and looking smug. Perhaps they couldn't believe their luck.
Save your hard-earned and give this sad site a miss.

This cenote is a prime example. The clearest waters I have ever seen showing into the expansive caves. The grounds could use a bit of simple clean up/refreshing but the cenote itself is worth the trip. Turtles and fish freely swim about until you slip into the cool waters. The scuba diving looked like a great choice if you have the time.

Good place to chill and refresh as an alternative to Tulum beach. Try to visit in the morning or late afternoon as it might get busy.

After enjoying a few days in the waves of the Caribbean Sea, we decided to try something different. We were recommended gran cenote as one of the nicest cenotes (there are many in the area). It is a lovely, easy and safe swim. You can rent all you need (life jacket, mask and fins) just there.
