underwater caves were just amazing. we saw plenty fishes and couple turtles. great cenote for snorkeling.
After we rode 4km from town on bikes we arrived paid our entry fee then went in. First thing I think is ridiculous is charging 10 us to swim in the cenote wow what a rip off. We went in n was shocked at the crappiest smalliest cenote. We had already dived some cenotes I said to my friend lets... More
Great cenote we toured with Roxy from Get Wet dive shop in Tulum. She managed to have a timing were we did not see any people, some it was just perfect. We then went to Temple of Doom, and that one wase awesome.
Whilst staying in Tulum for 6 days we received a recommendation to visit this cenote. We had already visited Dos Ojos cenote, and enjoyed that so we were only too happy to visit another one. We took a cab out to the Gran cenote and arranged for the driver to come back for us, as he told us that cabs... More
The weather was perfect and there wasn't much people which was a bonus. The foliage was amazing, the atmosphere was inviting. It was a great time at the cenote We were with a tour guide so we got some history on everything there before we entered. Water was refreshing and felt great..would go again if we go back!
We had been reading about cenotes and thought we should check one out. Gran Cenote sounded like the one for us. It cost $10US to get in. The bathroom was dirty. The change rooms even worse. The lockers were $2.50US. The water in the cenote is very cool (to be expected). It took us 10 minutes to snorkel around the... More
On our trip through Yucatan, we visited some cenotes, and this one stoud out because of its great snorkeling with stalactites and stalgmites. I would recommend to dive however, because when snorkeling, you feel a bit like 'missing out on the fun part'.
Gran Cenote is a magical place. Not at all crowded (especially if you go there around noon), not too touristy, just beautiful nature, crystal clear water, caves, friendly fish, turtles and bats, plants, lizards... Easy drive by bike from Tulum. Go there, you won't regret it!
We arrived around noon but there weren't many people there. We found it a charming experience swimming through the cave and peeking into dark corners. It's a beautiful spot. Expensive, but we were very happy to have visited - it was one of our favorite Tulum experiences.
I jogged out to this Cenote with a friend early in the morning, and we beat the tour buses there having the place mostly to ourselves when we arrived. Come ready to swim and bring your goggles and your waterproof camera to enjoy turtles and fun cave sights underwater. Being able to swim from one entrance to another through a... More
