I would definitely recommend! There is a large grass area for sunbathing, toilets, then steps down to the Cenote where there are lockers (you need ID or 100 peso deposit) and snorkel rental. You swim with the turtles and in the caves with bats, very...More

By boyfriend and I rented bikes and pedaled here from the Tulum Ruins. It was an excellent workout/sight, especially with sunscreen. We saw a whole mess of turtles and little fish and crystal blue water. Don’t forget to look up while you’re here! Views are...More

The cenotes of the Yucatán are spectacular. The Gran Cenote is a beautiful glimpse of the fresh water underworld of the Maya culture. Amazing power captivated all of us.

Go early and beat the crowds. Snorkel to see the fish, turtles and stalagmites. Laugh at the instamodels posing while they admonish their boyfriends for not being professional photographers.

Mainly our own fault, which is why its a 3 star, but we went to the most popular cenote and it was just absolutely rammed with people. So we left immediately, despite having paid loads to get in and not getting a refund. Suggest going...More

If you're in Tulum and only have time to visit one of the Cenote's, I would recommend this one. We rented bike and rode down to this Cenote. On the way back we also visited Cenote Calavera. I would say that I had more fun...More

I am not giving 5 stars only because they should improve the flooring down the cenote. It gets very slippery when there are too many people
