We travelled with a 1 and 3 year old. There is enough place inside the Cenote to put your bags and take a break. There is also place on steps for kids to play around and shallow limestone (uneven) before it goes deep. Its got a great view.
Some of the reviews have said stairs are slippery, i don't agree. Use precaution as you would on any stairs that are wet. There are rails on each side to hold on an the facility and surroudings are in excellent shape.
Also, travel books say this closes at 4:30, again not true. We reached at 4:45pm and it was open for atleast an hour after. I believe its open till 6pm (for entrance) in winter, possibly longer in summer.

One of the best cenotes i've ever been. At only 1 km from Valladolid its definitely a MUST if you travel to Yucatan or near Cancun the park entrance costs $90 mxn and includes 2 cenotes (Samulá & Xkeken aka Dtzinup) the amazing views among the crystal clear water and freshness are one of a kind. You will invest a couple of hours and then you may keep going until you reach Uxmal ruins.

Might be a good place to visit on ultra low season. But in December it was full and felt more like a public swimming pool than the cenote experience you might be looking for. Way to many vendors pushing to sell. Water is not as clean as in many other cenotes.

If you imagine some remote and dessert med Cenotes, this is not the one.

But if you are passing by, so make the stop and see the limestone pools. Even take a dip in the cool water.

A lot of vendors trying to push some cheap souvenirs on you, will quickly make you leave
