This was one of our favorites. We snorkeled here, but there were many folks that also came here to scuba dive. It's beautiful! Beware of the mosquitos...they will attack whenever you're out of the water!

These hidden jewels are worth a visit. It was very hot the day we arrived and the clear, fresh water pool was a great relief. The site is well managed with snorkels, masks and life jackets to rent. And life guards standing by. It can...More

Fascinating place . Lovely to swim in these caves. Can get busy and there are always annoying people who think shouting from one end to the other is acceptable. But great cave with bats flying over you and some very "active" turtles A real pleasure

It's not easy to get to and the access is less than welcoming (don't forget anything in the car because you can't come back for it), but the cenote is impressive. Crystal clear water, fish, turtles, bats, and birds ! My adolescents loved it. Lockers...More

We had an awesome time snorkelling here. Great way to cool off and get away from the heat. Was a little busy mid day but got quieter closer to 4pm. There's a nice space up top with hammocks and a grassy space to chill/hang out...More

I have been before, but wanted my group of friends to see it so we came after our trip to Coba. We arrived around noon, so it was already crowded, but we found that once in the water you had plenty of room to swim...More

Just about 4 minutes outside of Tulum. Very inexpensive place to relax on a lazy afternoon. Plenty of free parking and it's just off the highway. You can rent the snorkeling equipment on site. Water is not deep so safe for the kids.

I do not know, I would bet that if you ask at the hotel concierge they could help. good luck. Always save an expired Drivers License to give for this sort of thing.

You could ride a bike here no problem and you don't need a tour. There are plenty of taxis in the Tulum area if you happen to need one....I can't remember the fee, but it was reasonable. We brought in water and some snacks... More

I highly recommend going on your own with a car. I think tickets are around $5-7 dollars per person. By avoiding the tour you will not only save money, but it will free up more time in your day to do other things.
