This was our last cenote before we headed home and for me it was the best. Like all swim holes the earlier you arrive the better .. we found the size much more engaging and the deepness too .. Not so many stalagmites or stalactites...More

Visiting a cenote was on my bucket list and Gran Cenote exceeded my expectations. However, get there before the crowds or you'll miss out on the tranquility of this beautiful place. As of July 2017, it opens at 8am (despite its website saying 10). Make...More

This is a beautiful Cenote just outside of Tulum. We had a car during our visit so we arrived just before they opened at 8:00 am (highly recommended). Like most other attractions in the area, the later you go, the busier it gets. We felt...More

We hit two cenotes and they were the standout adventures of our trip. We like the unique qualities of the cave cenotes, being able to swim under overhangs, and enjoying the clear water. Grand Cenote was all of this and for us a little more...More

This was an amazing site to see. How anyone can deny that there is no God after seeing something like this, is beyond me.

Great to get away from the heat. Cool, clear water an all the facilities you'll need. Watch out for the bats in the roof of the caves!

After a fun (and hot) day at the beach, changing our approach seemed like a great idea. A local recommended the Gran Cenote, and she was right! The aquamarine water was beautiful, swimming in the caves was amazing. Watching the birds and turtles was fun,...More

We were waiting for our apartment to be ready for our check in time. This was a great spot to come and swim, relax and just enjoy the jungle! for $10 / person, i think it was a good deal. There are many other cenotes...More

I do not know, I would bet that if you ask at the hotel concierge they could help. good luck. Always save an expired Drivers License to give for this sort of thing.

You could ride a bike here no problem and you don't need a tour. There are plenty of taxis in the Tulum area if you happen to need one....I can't remember the fee, but it was reasonable. We brought in water and some snacks... More

I highly recommend going on your own with a car. I think tickets are around $5-7 dollars per person. By avoiding the tour you will not only save money, but it will free up more time in your day to do other things.
