  • It is one of the cenotes which is located on the highway from Playa del Carmen to Tulum. When it comes you may park barely entering route, and now the car is left there (not as in others who wanted the car and comes with it). Paid and if you want to change can make it in the bathrooms that are located at the entrance, then you have to walk less than 100 metres to the cenote. Rent deck chairs and there are basic things to eat or drink like water, sodas, fruit, etc. THE cenote has several entrances, one large enough, where you can turn and climb as to an upper floor where practiced jumps of 7 meters or more... The depth is enough in in this sector. Then has two areas more, that are low and can be a foot. It's great to go with guys. With the input they provide vest.

  • One of my favorite cenotes to hang out at. It is quaint and not too crowded. One of the waiters at our resort mentioned for us to visit and he was right. Nice clear cool waters and the fish will nibbl...  read more »
  • Like the majority of the cenotes in the riviera maya, arrival takes time but it is worth much, is a clean, amazing place, there is a very good job of maintenance even if the service and attention to the customer by the people who work there is not just the best, it would be the only detail because in the end, the entrance is not free , but in general is a very good place to go only, in couple or with the family.

  • 50 pesos to get in and free use of life vests. There are 3 parts of the cenote, two are fairly small and the other one is bigger which allows diving. They are very kind and didn't charge my disabled aunt and even helped carry her down. There are fish that eat the dead skin on your feet. If you don't move, they start coming to you. The big cenote has tons of fish to swarm your feet.
  • Looks like cenote Azul but no so crowded. It has everything you need to have a good time in cenote: little caves, possibility to jump into the water and just to snorkel.
  • Great place. There are 2 centoes there and the one on the left is bigger and deeper. The one on the right is more for people trying to relax or for little kids. It doesn't go deport than 2 meters I believe. The one on the left though has a diving ledge but does tend to get very crowded. But it's great!
  • Great cenote. One of our favs
  • Great place like cenote azul... Good place for 2 or 3 hours... Wish there were more fishes but I would go again...
