This is a very scenic lagoon with green waters coming from the Gulf of Mexico, and blue waters coming from the Caribbean Sea. You can actually see the different shades of water. It offers shallow waters by the island of Holbox with very firmly packed...More

Every "3 island tour" boat stops here and dumps another 15-25 people into this tiny cenote and with 10-20 boats at a time, it's way too overcrowded. You have to pay an extra 25 pesos per person to enter and while the cenote is pretty...More

We didn't even expect to be stopping at this small cenote. However it was a nice experience, albeit it's not maintained that well it was so refreshing on a hot day. We were here for around 45 minutes, saw some really bright and colourful crabs...More

Although beautiful this place was quickly seen. If there had been less people we would've jumped right in but there were just too many people in it and all around it. We decided to just admire the view from the tower and then drink a...More

This spring fed lagoon is pretty and fun to swim in, but there is not a lot else to do. We had a 45 minute stop on the island with our boat tour and that was plenty. You can get a drink and some tacos...More

The temperature is ideal, the crystal clear water is beautiful. I really liked swimming there. Fun little excursion. And they have empanadas for 15 pesos if you get hungry. :) Entrance is 25 pesos.

This was my last stop on the "three island" tour. Having been to many other cenotes in the region I thought this one was small and pretty underwhelming. It was fine to jump in and splash around for a few minutes, but I definitely wouldn't...More

The place is beautiful, the Cenote is clean but it doesn’t have any facilities, the restrooms are very dirty and the restaurant is so bad attended, the personal is very grumpy. Not a good experience

We discover this place on the tour of the three islands. We stay there only for one hour. You pay 25 pesos at the entrance (aprox 1.25 USD). You can swim inside the lagoon with very clear water. After swimming we eat Ceviche there it...More

The tour is by boat so unless you have a boat I would think tour is the best way to go- only 20-30$ USD per person. Think I paid $800 pesos for the 2 of us. You can sign up for the tour in el centro de holbox - there are... More
