Before coming to Mexico, knowing we would not have much time for some things like cenotes (sadly), I investigated which might be the most worth visiting. I guessed right! At Dzitnup, you have two choices of cenotes and pay $5 US separately depending on which you want to visit -- I knew Samula was very beautiful and representative of the photos that you see of cenotes. Yep, it was gorgeous, and the water was brisk but fine for swimming. There are vendors of course, but just ignore them if you don't want to buy something, and head straight down to Samula and swim and swim; you will not be disappointed. It's HUGE, something which the photos do not catch, and the water is crystal clear and filled with little fish that will lap at your feet if you stay still. It goes deep. When we went, about two hours before it closed, there were only three other tourists there. There were no lights that I've read about (maybe they turn them on only when there are more people around?). The grounds are also well-kept, but do be careful: I saw a coral snake slither across the path as well as a giant yellow millipede.
This was so beautiful. I would love to go back every day. And the price was good. Also, good dressing rooms and plenty of places to buy beverages. A bit commercial looking on the outside, but that doesn't follow you underground.
