We were lucky to stay in an apartment close to this beautiful cenote. Actually, it's more like the public pool of Valladolid --- lots of locals hanging around, enjoying the cool air and water. Especially in the morning or late afternoon when it's not that busy it's always worth a visit for a quick swim.... Or a huge jump, if... More

We visited Cenote Zaci after seeing Casa de los Venados in Valladolid. Just a few blocks from the town center, this is a lovely, open cenote with stone steps leading down to the water from ground level. We did not swim, but enjoyed watching families leap from the surrounding walls and swim in the crystal blue water. A palapa restaurant... More

This was our families first Cenote. We went to 2 others during our stay and this one was great for jumping. The cost is about $2 per person. We had one of the locals explain a lot about how Cenotes are made and spent about 10 minutes with us. We ended up give him an extra $5 and it was... More

Visited this cenote last week and as it was my first didn't know what to expect. It certainly was a beautiful spot to cool off and only a short walk from town. As I am not a strong swimmer there was no way I was leaping off a 10 metre ledge! On the way down I watched some locals entering... More

Very nice cenote, easily accessed by walking as it's near the centre of town. Good cool water for a refreshing swim and great photos of the cave and stalagtites.

It's so odd when you think about a place this beautiful being just four or so blocks from the city square. The area where you enter looks like any other little park on the corner until you descend down the stairs into the cenote. The stairs wind down, around the cavern, taking you through beautiful vegetation. The animal life is... More

M partner and I were hot and tired from visiting ruins and a dip in a cenote sounded really nice. However, we were really sick of being harassed by vendors. We randomly found this cenote whilst having coffee a few blocks away and thoughts it was a mistake. How could there be a cenote in the middle of town? We... More

This is a must see - it was only a 3 block walk from the main downtown area. You can swim or just enjoy the views. Was not crowded (especially in the morning). Loved it!

I stumbled upon this place with my bike and loved every inch of this place. I took my time going around the full cenote and watching a bunch of young men jumping into the water. I did not take a swim and it looked so inviting.

When we heard there was a cenote in the core of the town of Valladolid, I was expecting something small. How wrong I was. This is a beautiful place to swim and spend an afternoon, or even just to visit and have a look. Entry fee is equivalent to about USD$2. Keep in mind that the cenote is extremely deep... More
