Swimming in a cenote is a bit like being in an Indiana Jones movie. Slippery stone stairs lead to a dark cavern filled with crystal clear water. The Tarzan-style vines, the roots of above ground plants, hang from the ceiling of the cavern. The slow...More

The afternoon sunlight shining into the cenote opening into the water is just surreal, the water is a bit on the cool side which made it perfect for the hot afternoon. Not too crowded either, and you can just leave stuff on the side of...More

Price for both was 125 pesos. No guide or someone buying skip the line tickets is needed. Take care that you arrive early in the morning to have the best experience.
