Nice cool dip after cave-tour with Upside Down Tours

The small sinkhole is good for a dip. A lot of locals use it too. It's deep enough for a swim and safe but just for bathing. Safe.

For those who yearn for the cenotes of the Yucatan, come here. I could imagine it might get crowded but it was not when we were there. The water was cool and very refreshing. There were small fish in the water which was generally not too deep at all, apart from one area near the cave entrance from which the... More

We stopped here enroute back from a Mayan Temple. It was nice, good way to cool off when you take a dip. It was very blue water. But not a "must see"

It is a small park, not to be confused with the larger "Blue Hole." You can swim and enjoy a lovely lagoon in a beautiful setting and take a hike in this park for a lovely nature break!

The hole is a great blue colour, smaller than we expected but enough for a dip and a photo op. A few fish in the water but not a cenote / snorkeling op. Was relatively crowded in the middle of the day so maybe come early or late. Easy access from car park and Hummingbird Highway. Combine with stop to... More

Just off the Humming Bird Highway this cenote is worth a stop to have a swim and a walk to Herman's cave. The staff are very friendly and looked after our backbacks whilst we swam and walked. We were travelling by bus- there is a bus stop just by the entrance so it is very do able by public transport.

Along the Hummingbird Highway you will find this national park. The admission gets you access to the Blue Hole as well as St Herman's Cave. This is a nice stop to break up the drive from the north to the south beaches. It can take an hour or two. The blue hole is a 15 minute hike and then you... More

We came here and hiked both to St. Herman's Cave and the Blue Hole. Both were awesome to see. Would definitely recommend visiting this park if you're in the area.

A very small cenotes in which you can swim or wade. It is not all that large but is a great place to stop to break up a drive.
