It is a small cenote. I was a little crowded but it was still nice. It is like a small pool 60 ft by 15 ft. Half is only 2 ft depth the other half is more than 10 ft depth.

We had a very nice time at this small but beautiful Cenote. After descending about 60 feet on a occasionally slippery stone stair case you enter a low ceiling area at the entrance to a cave. It opens up to a rocky but open Cenote...More

The setting is quite nice and certainly not hard to find. While small, the cenote is delightful. We had it to ourselves most of the time. They do seem to charge you for everything on the grounds. We even had to pay to use the...More

We visited this cenote last year and also about 2 years ago (our first visit). The first time we had it nearly to ourselves, which made the experience more mysterious. The cenote is in a cave underground down some narrow steps; you may have to...More
