This is a gorgeous place which was not at all busy. It is open-air and has beautiful, well maintained grounds. Took our 3 and 4.5yr olds and they had a blast...although it took them a few minutes to adjust to the surroundings and the rope....More

Cenote Yokdzonot is a treasure- visually beautiful, very well organized and managed, clean, and with the added bonus of an on-site outdoor restaurant serving delicious meals and frosty drinks. The women who conceived of and developed this project should be proud of a job well-done!

Cenotes are magical places in the Yucatan where cool water fills a limestone cavern to form a natural swimming pool. This one is particularly nice because it's gorgeous and, somewhat off the beaten path since it's not on the route between Cancun and Chichen-Itza. Lovely...More

The pictures here don't do the beauty of this cenote justice. The sun was shining, the temperature of the water was perfect, and as I was floating in the water, I couldn't help but think that I was dreaming. Bring goggles and you'll be able...More

Certainly not worth it from cancun. If you're staying in valladolid then its a short trip to this cenote. Valladolid is a lovely place btw and central to many popular attractions
