Going to Cenote Azul with my family was a fantastic experience! For what you would pay 35-50 USD an hour anywhere else, here it is just 5 USD per person just a fraction of the cost for the whole day of calm, crystal clear cenotes. The fish were completely healthy and are all natural, beautiful fish, no dead or decomposing... More

I went to the Cenote with a friend quite early in the morning, imagining that at that time we would be able to enjoy the place. I was completely wrong. To begin with, the central Cenote is not very big and there were quite a few people already. Around 15 minutes later the Cenote was packed with people shouting, diving,... More

We had a lot of fun jumping off the platform into the water and zip lining into the water. The fish weren't very tropical but still very fun trip.

Having never been or seen a cenote before, my partner and i visited here whilst staying in playa del carmen. It cost about 80 pesos on the collectivo from playa del carmen. It was 70 pesos entry each. The cenotes are open air and the water is beautiful, crystal clear and contain a variety of fish and we even saw... More

For this occasion I went there with my friends and we had a very good time. The place I very close to Playa del Carmen like to 10-15 minutes way to Tulum. To get there you can take a colective transport from Playa del Carmen it I like 20$ MNX (like 1.2 USD) or by car. The paying to enjoy... More

We visited Cenote Azul on the recommendation of our taxi driver. It is right off the highway near Hotel Barcelona. It did not disappoint. Cenote Azul was a wonderful family oriented place to spend the day. It was easy to find nice places to stop and have a picnic. The water was clear and there was lot of these small... More

This cenote is only a short half hour 35 peso ride by colectivo from Playa Del Carmen and the entrance fee is only 80 pesos, which is quite reasonable and well worth it. You can dive off the dock and swim underwater into the caves which are about 20 meters away if you can hold your breath for about 30... More

Toured tulum, akumal, and another cenote. But highlight of the trip was Azul. Crystal clear with thousands of colorful fish. Highly recommend. Easy to find and easy in/out.

There were 11 of us, including 5 kids, that spent an afternoon here. It was a lot of fun, relaxing on a sunny day. Most of us snorkelled to see the fish, but we would often just find somewhere to sit still and let the little fish come nibble at our feet, hands and legs cleaning off the dead skin... More
