Really beautiful place, really small, nothing exciting just some swimming, good snorkeling and enjoy the view, good for little kids.

This cenote is absolute heaven. Get there early and claim a spot to sit and picnic later. We brought sandwiches. I have been to many cenotes in the area and this is, by far, my favorite one

The swimming spot is a great local favorite. You have to rent a car or take a collective bus to get there but the water is beautiful. Find a quite shallow spot with your feet in the water and the little fish come eat your...More

We've vacationed in the area for over a decade - I'm not sure how we've missed this little gem in the past. Cenotes (sacred wells) are natural swimming holes formed by the collapse of limestone bedrock, which reveals an interesting and beautiful collection of groundwater...More
