There are several pools of different sizes and depths. You can jump into the largest pool which also has a cavern under water for diving. There are quite a lot of fishes who will happily nibble your feet if you sit still. Only real downside...More

Crystal clear water, great snorkeling and cave diving, cliff jumping or just plain swimming and lounging on the rocks. But does it ever get busy, that's really the only downfall on this popular destination. I would go back

A beautiful cenote in a marvelous setting. Entry is $5 USD per person and you don't need to sign up for any tour. Clear water, many small fish in a well maintained environment. Nice jungle trails surrounding the cenote. For us, this was what we...More

We went to Cenote Azul just before they opened and had the whole place to ourselves for close to 45 minutes on a Friday. I suspect that if you go mid-week, you might have an even longer private visit. The Cenote is beautiful, full of...More

We figured we better visit at least one cenote since we were in PDC, so we chose this one based on some positive reviews. It was tough to park and very crowded - we find it hard to enjoy natural attractions when there are big...More
