Cenote Azul, Yucatan Peninsula

(850+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
Swim and relax at Cenote Azul, a natural, below-ground lagoon with two smaller, shallower pools close by. Cool off in the refreshing, clear water, snorkeling and observing the tropical fish that call this remote oasis home. A small cliff provides a popular place to jump off from and dive into the evocatively colored pool. The two other pools provide shallower waters for less confident swimmers. Primarily frequented by locals, the cenote has not been overdeveloped, but you'll find certain basic amenities onsite, such as bathrooms and snack stands.

  • A great spot to spend a few hours. Bring your snorkel, towel and a lunch, this place is a great hangout to cool off. On weekends you'll find local families hanging out, but it can be much quieter during the weekdays. Take a jump off the small rock edge, swim through a small tunnel or even get a free pedicure from the little fish that nibble on your feet. Easy access right off the highway, spot in for a dip
  • This place is wonderful, crystal clear water and thousands of little fish that come to you and eat your death skin. it feels like tickles and so relaxing. entrance is around US$4.00
  • Sparkling clean. Awesome. Whether your snorkeling or jumping off the ledge or just enjoying the soothing waters. I was the only American there on this day and the Other Mexican customers and proprietor's were so nice and accommodating. Beautiful People. Nick @ unleashed on the world
  • Amazing place! Wow! Crystal clear water, nice scenery and a cliff ledge to jump into the water from. Unforgettable!
  • Perfect cenote to spend an hour or two. Small, but beautiful, easy to access.
