The cenote itself is beautiful and a bit different from others, so it was worth the trip. It was also quiet when we visited so we were able to get some nice photos. Overall facilities here (shared with cenote x’keken) are worn out and the site actually feels abandoned. If you come here, do both of the cenotes to get more value for the visit.

when we went in i asked if there was more that we had pay for inside, they said no, but there was! You have to rent you life vest 2times. First you have to rent one at the first cenote and then take it off and rent another one at the second one. On your way to the cenotes they force you to go past all the shops. In the end i have only seen one cenote, that was pretty, but it was not worth it.

This was rated as one of the best cenote so we gave it a try. Though impressive we weren't dying to see more. The cave and light from overhead openly was impressive but we felt like we were forced through a labyrinth of tacky tourist shopping to get there.

These was a lot of questions about what to do with your "stuff"? Are there lockers etc? Once you get in there you can safely leave your items in sight.

This is one the best $5-10 I spent on my trip to the Yucatan Peninsula. This cenote was incredibly clean and was stunningly beautiful. It was not crowded at all, in fact we went in the middle of the day and it was very tranquil and charming. I would definitely revisit this cenote next time!

Rented a car for the trip, stopped in after Chichen Itza and lunch. Just followed a sign to Dzitnup down a dirt road, it's on the right, it looks like a childrens play ground from the outside. No big signs just paid the State Tax charge and went in hoping for the best. It was a lovely refreshing dip in the cool waters. A memory that I hope will last forever. Something to be put on your bucket list!

I visited this cenote one time and it's a small cenote. It's quite difficult for a tall person like me to go down into the entrance, for getting to it.

We were searching for the Ditznup cenote outside the town of Valladolid. We turned off hwy 180 following the signs to Ditznup. After passing up signs for two other cenotes, we found ourself in a small village less than a kilometer away. Realizing we may have passed it or made a wrong turn, we started to turn around. A group of small school boys, no older than12, began throwing baseball size stones at our car. Having our windshield shattered we left quickly. Unfortunately, because of the incident, we never saw the cenote. Be aware of possible hostility towards tourists in that area.

On the way back from Chizen Itza, on our way to Tulum we stopped by D'zitnupt Cenote (also known as the X'Keken, "pig", cenote, near Valladolid, Mexico.) This Cenote is underground cavern that is lit by a crack in the ceiling and artificial light. Both my kids (son 13 and daughter 10) enjoyed swimming here; and ranked it second only to Club Med Cancun's wake boarding and trapeze on this vacation.

After you pay a moderate admission fee (a few dollars), you climb down into the cenote via a stairway. What your head!

It's a nice break on the drive back from Chichen Itza, and highly recommended for families with children.

July 27,2005 on our way back from a tour of Chichen Itza, our guide told us about this Cenote and that it was very beautiful and worth the time. As the taxi pulled into the parking lot, we were approached by several local mayan children who wanted to be our guides. The taxi driver told us to select one and that we should give him a dollar for his efforts. We went to the ticket booth to pay our entrance fee which was just a few dollars for my wife and I and two children. We went down a stairway holding a rope into this fresh water cavern that has a hole at the top that lets light in. The child guide told us the history of this Cenote which took about a minute or two. The outside temperature was in the mid 90's and the interior temp of the cavern was in the 70's. We swam in the cool clear fresh water as our guide watched our belongings. You can stay as long as you want in this underground paradise. The hole in the top lets in sunlight and you can also see stalagmites inside. When you exit, there will be lots of kids selling the nicest picture postcards for .50 cents each. Don't miss it. It is just past the city of Valladolid by a few kilometers on the left as you go toward Chichen Itza.
