    We took adavantage of the restaurant while the cenote was closed. There is significant construction going on around it to provide more tourist experience and entertainment, Supposed to be complete by April/May 2022. We had a wonderful guacamole and the famous Valladolid Lomitos (grilled pork pieces in a tomato sauce). Both were tasty and we would reorder again. Service was pleasant. Cost was about 350pesos including several beer. It will get busy once construction is complete. By buying food or drink you can avoid the fee for using the cenote.

    Swimming in such beautiful clear water was a great experience specially because they allowed us to bring ours well behave pups.Dog are not allowed during regular hours but you can book a private hour so you can have the entire place to yourself. Make sure to contact in advance if you are planning to bring your dog and wait for their approval.(You must bring life jacket for your pups).

    Magical Cenote. Underground, rays of sunshine and light, stalagmites, and refreshing natural water - what more than you need! AND 80 MXN for Xkeken / Dzitnup. WOW!

    Went on a Wednesday afternooon around 2pm and maybe 30-40 people were there. Amazing way to spend the day with a friend of mine when she came in town!!

    We visited Cenotes Dzitnup, actually two Cenotes. You pay slightly more to visit both, they each have a different feel. It is a good plan to arrive early, there were very few tourists when we were there. First you have to run the gauntlet of tour guide wanna bees, although the young man who wanted to help us was very informative. But you don’t need a guide There are also gauntlets of vendors and the grounds of the two Cenotes are somewhat in need of care. There are a number of abandoned structures, perhaps once cabins - it looks like the heyday was some time ago. A bit of a ghost town feel.

    Cenote Xkeken is a quiet cave, tranquil and clear. Interesting formations on the ceilings, like eggs. Some idiot had been smoking (who smokes in a cave?) which was unfortunate but not fatal.

    Cenote Samula is on the other side of the site, it has a jumping platform and is therefore a less tranquil spot. Also very clean and clear, uncrowded.

    Our tour guide was Raul, he spoke great English explaining all the history and beliefs of the mayans, which was super interesting.

    It is by appointment only, and we had the cenote all to ourself which was amazing. Such a unique experience and the cenote was breathtaking.

    You go down different levels down the underworld, it was a journey. By that I mean you don't just get hundreds of tourists just wanting to jump into the cenote and get pictures for Instagram. It was non touristy and unspoilt.

    I was not expecting much from the food, I was their for the cenote, however it was really really nice food. The chicken was cooked underground for 3 hours, served with tortilla, rice and fresh dips. It was fantastic! There was also a nice desert as well as a starter, and the waiter was really funny. Again we had the small restaurant to ourselves.

    It's a tour we will never forget and represents excellent value for money. You can buy entrance only tickets for other cenotes cheaper i expect but i would really recommend you spend a little more and go for this tour. You won't regret it!

    This was awesome. Really unique, a fun adventure.

    One question we had... the rappelling and the zip line with a 6 year old... it was perfect. She had a blast and we got some incredible photos of her rappelling down the 100' into the cave, and then zip lining and dropping the ~20-30' into the water.

    It was a few hours really well spent. The food was excellent (and there was plenty).

    The evening show is worth the money you spend (it's free.) I suppose it's a good thing to do between dining and a bar. It is very pleasant to sit outside. At the end, there are dancers and drummers looking for tips from the crowd. The museum tour is not that exciting but it's nice to explore the grounds and the rooms. It wasn't that expensive and is a good way to fill your time.

    Getting here is fairly easy following Google Maps. It's a nice drive through farm country and a cool little town. When you arrive, there are two cenotes and it's a bit confusing. The changing area was clean and the cenote was beautiful with very few people. No tour buses here! The lunch buffet was not that bad and the staff was very friendly.

    I love bees so I had to come here. Being able to see so many different kinds of bees living freely and being able to taste their products is an amazing experience. Recommended for anyone into Mayan culture and bees!

    A relaxing place to sit with a coffee in the morning or enjoy the evening after dinner. A lovely view of the fountain and church. Lots of life and a few vendors at night. How could you not like this place?

    What an amazing experience this was. Swimming at this Cenote was included in the excursion we booked and we had a blast. After a long days of walking through the Mayan Pyramid at Chichen-Itzá we were able to cook off and take a swim here. The Hacienda has several areas to visit but we wanted to swim here. We purchased a locker and had to pay for a life jacket ( you can’t swim unless you have a life jacket). Prior to jumping in the Canoe they ask you to shower to remove any unwanted chemicals in the water. The water was so cool and refreshing. I would have loved to had stayed much longer but we could not. The Canoe is very deep but you are safe as long as you have your life jacket. Highly recommend this place.

    Full of shops on a beautiful old cobblestone street! A bit pricy with a few very expensive boutique hotels but well worth the visit for it's old world charm and heritage! Dates back 300+ years!

    One of the more unique cenotes. Island in the middle. Beautiful place. Large enough for several groups of people.
