    We went to Tulum with 9 family members. Our guide was pretty good and told us many interesting facts about the once walled city and its former inhabitants. It has a very interesting history and the remaining buildings are fascinating. The beach is full of seaweed and plastic waste and is very sad. It's too bad that you aren't allowed to go inside any of the structures. There are some signs explaining some of the history. It is well worth a visit.

    We enjoyed the whole day here! The basic entry fee (650 pesos) gets you a guided tour entering 4 very different cenotes — two open and two enclosed. Life jackets are included. Our tour guide, Super Jackie, was amazing! She made things fun and adventurous for us while keeping us all together and safe. (Thanks, Jackie!)

    After the tour, you can enjoy the two open cenotes for the rest of the day. We also paid a bit extra for the zip line (tiroleza) over the forest. There are food and drink stalls, boutiques, and a full restaurant.

    A great day of fun! We will definitely come back here.

    Gorgeous, stunning. So much beauty and while we visited in June (low season) there were quite a few locals spending the day YET this lagoon is so large it did not feel crowded whatsoever. A little more expensive than a cenote visit ($300 pesos) but worth every penny. A local friend of mine came with us and shared all money from this lagoon goes towards the Mayan family that cares for it, to the natural reserve around it, etc. Must must go. See a cenote first and then finish off with the lagoon. Swings nearby, places to set your bags down in the covered shade, have a fresh coconut, swim in the stunning waters. Beautiful beautiful!! Close to Aldea Zama & downtown Tulum too (15min).

    Very popular place during spring break, not just students. Much has changed and grown in the four years I've been away. Lots of bars! There are several guys to go snorkeling with. Prices seemed to hold steady, $20, or I got a deal because I was near the boat as they were loading up 8 others. Prepare to get splashed on rough or windy days. Wish we were allowed more time, maybe it was just are group?

    Casa is a nice dive. A little cave and some roots hanging above. Strong current though, so a guide is recommended (if not compulsory).

    It seems that it costs to use your own camera, which is weird. I didn't have one, do I'm not sure.

    Incredible place. We bought the tour, I highly recommend it. We hiked the jungle with a knowledgeable guide, ziplines over a bright blue lake, saw sleeping howler monkeys, and swam in a cave cenote that was once a place the Mayans sacrificed people in! It is dark, but apparently the floor is filled with the skulls of Mayan ancestors. So cool! Would go again

    Definitely a very unique beach, as the Mayans ruins overlook the entire beach. It wasn't possible to go on it though due to the newest covid restrictions.

    Although Chichen Itza is far more famous and bigger, the Tulum dramatic position on the cliff edge above the turquoise sea is unbeatable.
    The site is easy reachable from PDC in around an hour, and from Cancun in less than 2 hrs.
    For detailed plan and tips on how to visit on your own, please read my review about the Tulum archeologic site.
    The only downside is you cannot swim at the Mayan beach beneath the ruins, as it's closed due to Covid.

    We went in July 2020 during Covid, so many places had limited service. Ziggy's Cabana's were great, and had a pretty cool vibe. The food was excellent, and was what you'd expect to pay at a resort, maybe a little less. They used to have a place called Fressco's, but it was closed this trip.

    How we arrived
    - We came around 08:30 am and the "Sign" in front of the Cenote and Google clearly indicate they open at 08.00 am.
    - A young unfriendly guy working there tried to convince us that it opens at 09.00 am. To us it felt more like he was just a lazy sluggard.
    - We had to wait.

    How we tried to pay and paid
    - It's 200 (10 U$) Mexican Pesos per Person – not local (no matter the age)
    - Paying with Credit Card is not possible - like in many places in Mexico.
    - Thanks to another guy, who could even speak English, we could get in even if we didn't have exactly 800 Pesos all in all - cause we thought Credit Card is common nowadays.

    The Cenote
    - Aktun-Ha (Cenote Carwash) is a wonderful place to swim and snorkel.
    - Rock formations, fish and turtles can be seen through the clear water.
    - A deck along the edge is excellent for sunbathing and jumping off into the water.
    - We came early and had the Cenote for ourselves before it got busy (busier).

    Note:
    - There is a crocodile living there. It's friendly though ... we have seen it at the shore a couple of times.

    Final Thoughts:
    - We had a good time all together.
    - Would come again.
    - Would recommend it if 10 $ per Person is not too much for you.

    This was so much fun! Snorkeling in a crystal clear underwater cave. Definitely recommend checking this cenote out. There are so many to choose from in Tulum. Here, we avoided the crowds and our tour guide ( Manuel from Carey Tours) led the way through to the cave walking and then swimming throughout. Loved the experience.
