Clear and not crowded

This is a nice little cenote not far from Tulum. Not many tourists or other people when we were there so it was pleasant.

We ended up at Cenote Crystal as a conciliation after another attraction in the area was closed. Positives: Cheap. I think it was around 120 pesos per person (about $6-7). No crowds. There were only three other people there when we arrived and they left shortly after our party of four got there. Clean. The water was cool (not freezing)... More

Of all the cenotes I visited in Tulum this was by far the worst and by far, somewhat ironically, the least "crystal". There was slime or, as my friend called it, "mung" floating on the surface and it got in your hair and down your snorkel which was to be honest pretty gross. We stayed about half an hour and...

We enjoyed our swim here but didn't see a lot of colourful fish. Life vests cost extra. Not a lot to do nearby.

I'm told it's usually a great spot to have a snorkel, but we unfortunately visited Cenote Crystal after flooding, which meant the water was murky and you couldn't see anything underwater. However, there was a diving platform/wooden tower you could climb up and jump off which was awesome fun - but you can only do this for so long before... More

This open cenote is simple and easily accessible from Tulum town for a quick dip. The price we paid, I think, was 120 pesos per person so it was not expensive. The water is clear although there were floating chunks of algae around. Other members of my family who could see the bottom took their googles off since whatever goop... More

Much cheaper than Dos Ojos , about $5 ( always use Pesos, as it comes out a lot cheaper!! Very beautiful, and Azul is right next to it, but different, so you get to see 2 different Cenotes! Take a taxi, as it is always cheap , as you pay for the car , not by person, and they usually... More

Wasn't anyone here, didn't stay long. Was my second cenote at the time so I thought it was neat but it wasn't anything too amazing
