This is definitely a must see. There are various viewing areas where you can just observe this natural beauty. For the not so faint of heart, you can go diving. The water is extremely deep so you have to be a strong swimmer.

Visiting this cenote for a swim was a great trip but I would suggest you do it as a sole excursion or maybe one other destination after this as we didn’t get very long before we moved on. Also visit as early in the morning...More

You can’t go and not experience this. You get changed at the top, walk down the steps and jump. We visited in the middle of a thunderstorm which added to the whole experience. My only downside is that once you jump into the water you...More

Another place you need to visit. They have a restaurant and before getting into the cenote you have to rinse off.

Wow the natural stone stairs made me a little nervous, I was amazed at how big the place was, it can fit so many people. The water was cold but you quickly get used to it, it was actually quite refreshing. You might want to...More

Beautiful place. It was easy getting down to the swimming site, just 95 steps down. The water is cold, but the experience if swimming in a cenote is second to none. The climb up after swimming was tough, but oh so worth it.

Bucket list. Extreme fun especially jumping from the platform. Hard to thread in this water. You may easily drown yourself. Also, too many people. Hard to swim pass too many people floating around after you jump. I got cramps and I was so lucky I...More

A really nice Cenote to cool off after Chichen Itza. Wasnt extremely busy when we got there but as we were leaving 3 coach loads of tourists turned up! The cold water was very refreshing after a very hot day!

We drove here from Ek Balam- way too far in my opinion. This site is too touristy, but the cenote was beautiful. On site buffet is average, at best, but works in a pinch and is reasonable in price.

Hi there There are 2 viewing areas on the staircase that look over the cenote, to be fair I wouldn’t recommend going down to the water if your not going in, if it’s busy then people milling around not going in the water... More
