Water Body
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.

  • After several recommendations, I decided to visit this Cenote in the company of my 17-year-old son. The location is very curious; to the side of the road. The Cenote is fully open, with crystal clear waters and shallow (between 3 and 5 meters), entry includes vest life, snorkeling equipment rental is separate. A little-known Cenote but it's worth worth discovering.

  • Reasonable entry fee and they are pretty strict on the biodegradable sun screen which is a good thing but make sure you take your own. Lots of divers there as well would be good for that  more »
  • We paid 120 pesos each for admission and use of flotation jacket - we took our own mask snorkel and flippers. Cenote extends about 300m inland. Crystal clear water. Plenty of fish from guppies upwards...  more »

  • Great location on ocean across from Manatee (Casa) Cenote. Food is good and well priced Service is slow sometimes disappearing altogether. Texas themed buffet on Sunday afternoons is unique. Even though the restaurant is associated with the hotel, the restaurant doesn't​ take credit cards. We too had to wait more than 30 minutes to pay after receiving our check.
  • This is a great spot for having a bite with an INCREDIBLE view. Local Mexican food is very good, but it's the view that make this place special. Just across the road is Casa Cenote. When you're finished with a refreshing snorkel on a hot day, quench your thirst and have a bite here, you won't regret it.
  • Great location right on the beach, but the service isn't great. They do a bbq on Sunday which has lots of locals and others but there were only 2 waiters on. Only managed 1 set of drinks then had to wait over 30 mins to pay despite people waiting for a table. Be aware of the menu prices THEY DON'T INCLUDE TAXES. So actually this means the cost is probably more than the 2 nicer places next door.
  • My wife and I stayed one week at Casa Cenote and we would NEVER book it again. The Cenote and the sea is very nice but the Hotel and the Restaurant are not recommendable. 20 years ago it was surely a nice hotel and restaurant, but now it is nothing what you can enjoy. The food is not tasty at all and the Hotel is very old and it seems that the owner is not interested in to maintain the vacility (e.g. the main door of our room was not working). In addition the beach were not cleaned, that's why we went to the neighbour hotels to go into the water. Further experiences what we had during only 1 week: We had no energy for a whole evening and nobody cared about it. We had no hot water for more than 2 days. At one day our room was not cleaned and we got no new water bottles, although this is normally included. Most of the waiters were impolite. They were only interested in tip. Even after breakfast they asked for tip, although the breakfast was included. We had no Wifi at our room Overall: Visit the Cenote, but keep distance from the Casa Cenote Hotel and Restaurant
  • A very "atypical" cenote: a mix of tropical seawater lagoon and cavern
