This Cenote has a very nice restaurant overlooking the Cenote so you can enjoy a very nice meal with a great view. You have free parking here as well and it is located right near the downtown area.

Just a few blocks from the square, this very large cenote offers respite from the heat of the Yucatan. The day we visited, many people were swimming. There's a small entry fee to get in. The cenote also offers a restaurant and there are souvenir...More

Cenote Zaci is a great way to cool down after a hot day in the jungle. The food is great and it's well worth buying a beer to get free admission. The cliff jumping is super fun and, quick bonus, If you hang around in...More

If you're in Valladolid then definitely pay the 30 pesos to go swim in this cenote, so worth it. You can jump in without any problem but go in the morning as there are tourist buses that start showing up around 2-3 pm and it...More

This is a stunning open cave/cenote right near the market. It's interesting and beautiful. A great place to cool off. Entrance fee is a couple of dollars and good for the whole day. We went twice.

We were lucky to stay in an apartment close to this beautiful cenote. Actually, it's more like the public pool of Valladolid --- lots of locals hanging around, enjoying the cool air and water. Especially in the morning or late afternoon when it's not that...More

We visited Cenote Zaci after seeing Casa de los Venados in Valladolid. Just a few blocks from the town center, this is a lovely, open cenote with stone steps leading down to the water from ground level. We did not swim, but enjoyed watching families...More

This was our families first Cenote. We went to 2 others during our stay and this one was great for jumping. The cost is about $2 per person. We had one of the locals explain a lot about how Cenotes are made and spent about...More

Visited this cenote last week and as it was my first didn't know what to expect. It certainly was a beautiful spot to cool off and only a short walk from town. As I am not a strong swimmer there was no way I was...More

Best I can say is we visited after lunchtime, after we had visited Chichen Itza in the morning ( as Chichen Itza gets busier as the day goes on and is best visited earlier on ).
Does it cost money to go in?

yes, the price is 20 Mxn, but the entry is free if you eat or drink in the restaurant
