Our first experience of swimming in a Cenote. Lovely experience. Only one we came across that had tiny turtles in it. Great fun.

We had gone to a small Cenote on a Jungle ATV tour last year, but it was nothing compared to this one. Lots of turtles and fish. Birds flying in and out of the cave. They make you shower before you get in to preserve the Cenote. We really enjoyed this and it is a quick cab ride from the... More

I am always a bit sceptic about attractions that label themselves 'grand". This place honoured its title. Located close to Tulum, it has a very nice kept park and facilities sorrounding the cenote, (natural fresh water pool). The Cenote has the shape of a crescent moon around a rock formation, with caves going in several directions. In a rocky corridor... More

We had a great time. I hired a bike from the beach resort area and it took about 25 mins to get there. We also arrived at 8am and beat the crowds which was great to have it all to mostly ourselves. Bring towel and snorkel gear but you can hire for 80 pesos.

This was a really special place but by the time we got there at 11:30am it was so crowded it was hard to swim around and enjoy on our own. I would recommend getting there early. It was also $10/person to get in. Our favorite part was the cave you could swim through!

Would definitely recommend, just bring your own biodegradable sunscreen. They won't let you in with other kinds and to buy it there very expensive.
