I just loved the Grand Cenote. I had no complications at the entrance, as some other visitors experienced. There are showers, at the entrance to the cenote, so you can take a shower before entering and when leaving the cenote. I read from the other...More

A great place to visit, very convenient. The water is mostly clear, the temperature is moderate. Great opportunity to be up close with some turtles. I actually found one sitting on a small land mass (island) that was laying eggs. Lockers available as are life...More

This visit was in conjunction with another trip, which worked out well as we wouldn't have ever booked to go to this alone, but so glad we did. It was gorgeous but the water was freeeeezing!

We took a taxi here from Tulum (about 5 mins) and it was well worth the trip. You can hire snorkels, life jackets, lockers etc. The cenote is beautiful with a fair amount of fish to see and some interesting cave areas. Definitely a must...More

Cenotes is a must if you are at the Yucatán peninsula and the grand cenote is a good choice. It is quite big, has caves and open parts. The turquoise and calm water is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Visit it early to avoid crowded...More

This was a wonderful experience! Not overwhelming at all. It is snorkeling and not diving. You can rent equipment inside (vest, visor, snorkel) and snorkel around the cenote. You get to see fish, small turtles, birds, and probably some bats flying around. It was breathtaking!...More

Really neat way to experience something unique to the Yucatan. Beautiful natural sinkhole with turquoise freshwater. Really cold, but a great relief from the heat and fun to swim through a couple of short tunnels surrounded by fish with a few bats and turtles for...More

Agree with all the positive reviews after visiting last week. For 180 pesos (cash only), you get to enjoy two cenotes. Crystal clear water and the swallows flying just above your head are to be enjoyed while getting out of the heat. Highly recommend taking...More

This is a great cenote to visit. It was recommend to us because we are not divers and this Cenote is not so deep, so you can enjoy your experience better. You can just snorkel or swim around in the refreshing waters. You can bring...More

How far is this Cenote from Tulum? Coming in May and would like to possible ride our bikes or take a taxi. How much is the entry fee? You can do it without a tour right?

You could ride a bike here no problem and you don't need a tour. There are plenty of taxis in the Tulum area if you happen to need one....I can't remember the fee, but it was reasonable. We brought in water and some snacks... More
Did you take a tour or go on your own? Our family of 6 will be visiting with a car and don't want lunch, etc. How much are tickets just to hang out and explore the cenote? Thanks!

I highly recommend going on your own with a car. I think tickets are around $5-7 dollars per person. By avoiding the tour you will not only save money, but it will free up more time in your day to do other things.

I don't believe buses go there. It's a small, not too touristy place-Off the beaten path. We rented a car and hit a few Cenotes in the area.
