We visited this place after a long drive because of so many great reviews. We were so dissapointed! We ordered some food and drinks in the restaurant. It turned out that what we ordered is not available at the moment, so we chose another position...More

Was really cool to see these! Just be careful not to touch them as they are being damaged by all the people around them.

You can have a drink at the restaurant or lie down in the grass to enjoy the beautiful, magical 7 shades of blue in the cenote attached to the lake. Better even is to swim in it, lie down in the hammocks or swing the...More

Don't miss this palce, it has a lovely area with hammocks and swings by the water. The 25 pesos entrance is worth it. There is big garden (where you can even camp) and a local restaurant, good shade areas and the lagoon there is amazing.
