Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
Swim and snorkel in the crisp cold waters of Grand Cenote, a flooded cavern with a jetty, affording easy access to a wonderful subterranean pool. Scuba diving excursions are available, but you’ll be able to see a lot from the surface with your goggles, including strange rock formations and terrapins heading to the surface. The beautiful surroundings make a great place to have a picnic before returning to the pool. Keep your eyes peeled for the iguanas and peacocks that roam the surrounding area.

  • fun, beautiful, and amazing. I recommend going early to beat the crowds. easy to find and lots of parking available. they have guided scuba tours and scuba gear as well as lockers and snorkel gear for rent. must go to if you are in the area
  • This was a great experience being able to swim around in the cenote. We saw bats, cat fish, perfectly clear water, divers coming up from the caves below. It was a very freshening swim in the cool mineral water. I highly recommend bring or renting a mask and snorkel. There are bathrooms and rooms to change.
  • near Tulum one of the best Cenotes to visit. Big enough, not that expensive as the ones on the road to Cancun.
  • I had the impression this cenote was most of all more expensive than other ones. When you're not into diving or snorkeling, it's not worth the money.
  • Brilliant Cenote - magical spot, with dramatic formations to snorkel and explore, with fish and turtles swimming about with you. Highly recommended.
