Amazing spot! In my opinion the Cenote Samula is more beautiful and also a bit less crowded than its twin xkeken. We went there in the afternoon, almost evening and it was still an incredible view even if the sun wasn't directly shining through the...More

I went with folks and family. We had an excellent time. Water is clear with a green tone and cold which was perfect for the hot weather.

We visited a few Cenote on our recent visit to Mexico and this gem was our favourite. Wow! It was stunning. It was open and very deep with a cascading waterfall. There's a high platform for jumping that provided so much fun. We loved it...More
