While the crystal-clear waters and unique setting are undeniably beautiful, my experience there had two distinct sides: initial nervousness due to the depth and ultimate enjoyment once I was equipped and submerged.

Thankfully, the staff at Cenote Azul ensured my safety and comfort. They provided me with a life jacket and explained the layout of the cenote, including the shallow and deep areas. This information, along with the life jacket, significantly eased my anxiety and allowed me to fully appreciate the experience.

We took a quick stop here and wished we stayed longer. It was beautiful! A very nice cenote to relax around or swim in.

Beautiful cenote. Very remote and it's a huge swimming hole. You can stay for an hour or the whole day. It has a nice restaurant and the breakfast choices are excellent. It also has shops to purchase souvenirs. Overall a really fun place to visit.

Nice place - super clean water and a decent restaurant. This cenote felt more like a lake than the usual cenotes you would explore in the Yucatán

Minutes from the highway, this tiny private cenote offers a delicious breakfast or lunch with the stunning view of the water. The meal is complete with a dip in the water afterwards. The water temp is sublime, year around.

Great place for a swim, the water is very clear and if sunny, you can spot couple of nice fresh water fish. Just put your stuff on the side and jump in. The restaurant is quite expensive though so be aware if that and eat something before you go.

Located about 5km from the town centre this is a popular tourist attraction in Bacalar.

To get here we got a taxi at a cost of 60 mexican peso. Entrance fee was 25 per person.

Although described as a cenote don’t expect shallow, turquoise coloured waters. It reminded me more of a crater lake and this is reflected in the centre depth which is a whopping 90m.

There is a restaurant on site and change rooms.

The cenote drops quite quickly so there is minimal shallow water to bath in. There is a rope and some buoys going to the middle you can hang off it like me you are heavy and sink. The water was nice and cool to swim in particularly once you get deeper.

A hot tip would be after you finish here to walk the 500m to cenote cocalitos which is a beach club of sorts on laguna bacalar. Combining the two consumes most of a day. Both are open on a Wednesday (on Wednesday the lagoon closes to all motorboats).

We arrived just as it opened and decided not to do an adventure and just take a taxi to the Cenote. It was beautiful small cenote but deep enough I could not touch. The little fish gave a free foot cleaning and the water was perfection. Crystal clear and blue. They had bathrooms and a changing room which was just perfect. Would go back but when we left an hour later a few groups had shown up so early is the key.

very peaceful place - an enormous cenote - looked very gorgeous - couldn't swim (not feeling well on that day) but it was gorgeous and my family enjoyed it.

There is a restaurant - our waiter was Jose - super nice gentleman - very polite - great food! Ceviche Mixto and Shrimp Coctel my favorite :)

Lovely experience!
