  • Great crystal clear cenote with a nice cliff to jump from. Kids loved it. The cenote was full of those little spa fish that nibble on your feet. Kinda freaked out my gal but I thought it kinda cool an...  more »

  • 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!
  • Amazing cenote, water is a little cold, small fishes will pick at ur dead skin cells, small cliff to jump in from.
  • 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.
  • The place Is naturally beautiful, you won't regret it, those $100 pesos totally worth it, is really close to playa deal Carmen so is ideal if you want to do something different, however the bathrooms and showers are dirty and smelly, have a nice day everyone!!
