We visited this cenote to swim and relax. There's nice toilets and outdoor showers. I liked the way they asked people to shower before getting in, the cenote felt very clean. Water was beautiful, bring a snorkel to see all the fish and terrapins! There's...More

It's just outside Tulum with room for 20 vehicles. It looked like many visitors used bicycles to travel from Tulum. We were by far older than the average swimmer, most being in their 20's. There is a changing area and shower as the cenote has...More

The Grand Cenote was truly stunning. Clear clear cool refreshing water with two diving boards. Be careful though - the high dive launch pad is slippery, which can make it a long free fall down.

Weve been to most cenotes, but we prefer this one because it was not super touristy. Get early to avoid crowds or maybe it was because we vistied in high season.. there was about 50-60 people there at 10AM. Will be back...

We saw lots of turtles and fish while swimming in this cenote. There are lockers where you can keep your items safe while snorkeling. They have showers where you have to wash off before entering the cenote. Beware, the showers are freezing!

We had a hire car so it was no problem, but I expect that you could get a taxi or a bus.
