Vacations in Cancún

Hi, this was a very nice trip. If you want to swim, lifevests are mandatories. Trip from Cancún is like 2 hours to the Cenote. Then to Chichen Itza. Overall great experience.

This cenote is beautiful, even it is looks nice is not the most attractive to swim, even though could be an amazing place for a meeting or ceremony. The cabanas looks amazing, with the pool and restaurant. Perfect for families.

Visited this Cenote on the way to Chichen Itza as part of a coach tour. It is very much the stereotypical tourist trap (when visited as part of a tour) they try to sell you anything and everything, blessings from a Shamen, photos, silver pendants, expensive shop on site. For example the traditional blankets were on sale for 50 USD... More

If you are visiting the Valladolid area the this place is a must! Steep stairs but worth the climb. Spectacular spot!

We camped near the restaurant and had use of the showers, bathrooms and big pool. Friendly and helpful staff showed us to the nearby cenote which was completely deserted, an absolute to joy to have it to ourselves. Surroundings are beautiful, very calm and relaxing, however tour buses do use this place as a restaurant stop so could get much... More

We heard about this cenote from a friend. We arrived arounf noon, just when a small tour was leaving so we had the place mostly to ourselves. You have to go down a few flights of stairs, but as soon as you go into the cave/underground, it's so worth it.

What were they thinking when they decided to pave the bottom of the cenote and build an ugly feature in the middle ruining the natural beauty of the cave?! Visited all of the cenotes in the area around Valladolid and there is only one worth going to...cenote San Lorenzo oxman

Really busy place, but a wonderful experience. Bring your swimsuit, and a camera that adjusts to dark light. Very safe for climbing down and up, just beautiful.

There are two cenotes on this site, both similar, but we felt that nr. 1 was the better of the two. Both are full subterranean caverns with underground lake, stalactites etc. but in nr. 1 they have installed a stone walkway out to a platform in the middle of the lake under the light hole. This gives a whole different... More
