#4 of 23 in Nature in Tulum
Just 10 minutes from downtown Tulum, Casa Cenote boasts a natural open cavern fed by water that flows into the Caribbean Sea. Nestled above a large underground cave system and set in a scenic mangrove forest, the cenote offers a picturesque place to escape the heart. Swim in the vibrant turquoise water of the cenote, meandering among the mangrove trees, while millions of small tropical fish swim around you and colorful birds sing in the trees. Rent snorkeling or diving equipment to further explore the basin, its diverse wildlife, and a network of hidden underwater coves.

  • Pretty cool spot, and the guides are friendly. Don't expect to spend more than an hour here unless you really love swimming around. There isn't abundant wildlife, but the caves are pretty neat. If it is an easy trip for you and you can get there early I would recommend this cenote. If not, you might be better off going to the beach or a less popular cenote.
  • Was great. Really cool to actually see the opening of the Cenote to the ocean. Also cool to have a little lazy river type area to swim snorkel scuba and or kayak around.
  • RELAXING AND CLEAR WATERS
  • Nice big cenote, calm, May hire a cayak, nice fish.
  • It's an interesting cenote. Not as large as it looks on the maps. You can kayak out and jump in - there is a current. You can't go very far though. Water reflects the dark green trees that shroud the water. You can see the bottom.
