Visited Cenote Cristal y Escondido with family. Since they are not so popular, they were not very crowded - there were 10 people maximum. Cristal has a 10ft diving platform and Escondido has tons of fish and a swing you hold on then let go....More

It's a nice place to go for a swim and jump from the cliff, though for us it seemed to be too crowded. We just had a look at the beautiful cenote and left.

This cenote has a diving platform and is very refreshing however has a bit of algae floating around which doesn't make you feel great about the water quality.

This is a sweet and beautiful Cenote. We got there early in the morning, and there were only a few other people there. It isn't down deep in a cave like many of the cenotes. There are lines across the water that you can hold...More

The kids enjoyed it a lot. They jumped from the cliffs hundreds of time. The water and infrastructure is not as good as Cenote Azul, but we really enjoyed it there. Had a great time and would definitely recommend it - specially for kids

This was the most beautiful and clear cenote I visited in Mexico. I'll definitely be going back in September when I'm in Cancun!

Imagine the clearest water you have ever peered into, imagine the ancient Mayan civilization exploring their renowned underworld, imagine a fantasyland where awe inspiring beams of light dance around you.

Cristal Cenote should be called Algae Cenote - didnt even want to swm in it! Escondido Cenote was lovely, peaceful and relaxing. Not crowded and very clear. 120 pesos for both plus a 100 peso taxi was not worth it.

A very clear, lively and (at least when we were there) calm cenote with beautiful waters loaded with fish. Just of the road from Playa del Carmen to Tulom

We have visited several cenotes on our trip to the Yucatan and this was our favourite. It's marked with a large sign "Cenote Cristalino" along the main road. It absolutely perfect for snorkeling, with many different species of fish. I have never seen water this...More
