Cenote Santa Cruz, Akumal

(4.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Head deep below the surface on a guided tour of Cenote Santa Cruz, a system of underground reservoirs in a limestone cave. Known as cenotes, the reservoirs of crystal clear water lie in underground limestone chambers, believed to be more than 50 million years old. Impressive rock formations and the clear, clean water create an otherworldly atmosphere as you explore the system. The tour will provide life jackets and waterproof flashlights, but make sure you bring comfortable clothing, shoes you don't mind getting wet, and your own snorkel. Plan your Cenote Santa Cruz visit and explore what else you can see and do in Akumal using our Akumal vacation trip planner.

  • We had such an amazing time with our tour of this cenote. Antonio was our guide. He is friendly and informative. The cave itself is stunning. Would highly recommend! 
  • Vous y mettrez le temps avant de vous jeter à l'eau, entre 15 et 22 degrés à comparer de la température extérieure, à faire absolument, c'est magnifique ! 
  • Vale la pena visitar este Cenote, aunque hay que aclarar que no es facil llegar al mismo. el camino es bastante malo y no esta bien señalizado!
