We stopped here in the morning on the way to Chichen Itsa and were very disappointed after the great reviews we had read. It was dark and gloomy and the water was not clear and inviting as it had algae floating and just looked dirty....More

We visited a few Cenote on our recent visit to Mexico and this gem was our favourite. Wow! It was stunning. It was open and very deep with a cascading waterfall. There's a high platform for jumping that provided so much fun. We loved it...More

We were on a tour and stopped here, what a nice surprise! It definitely was the coolest Cenote (along with X’Keken) that we have seen. Definitely something not to miss if you are in the area.

We visited the Cenotes by bike from Valladolid. Taking a bike and ride it through the Yucatan country side? That alone is an amazing experience in itself. If the destination is this magical place? Gosh, it becomes one of the most memorable days of your...More

We stayed in Valladolid for 2 nights and went to Xkeken and Samula cenotes one day. We enjoyed our trip however if you have to choose, visit the cenote Zaci inside Valladolid, much nicer and fun than these. The price is 120 pesos per person...More
