This was a fun trip. It would be a good place to go for the day. No alcohol in or allowed. But can bring your own food. Lay in a hammock lay on the grass swim and cool off. And not too claustrophobic

I have been to a few cenotes between QR and Yucatan (Ik Kil, Azul, and Dos Ojos). This one is my favorite to date, have to leave some room for error for the next time I go and visit others. The turtles are definitely a draw. I also really like the ability to swim through and fit under the cave areas without needing to dive.

We went close to closing 4pm, and it was not very busy. I cannot speak to how busy it gets in the middle of the day. Though I do wish we came just a little bit earlier to spend more time here.

Lots of turtles and terrapins, and has a tunnel to swim through, which is nice. Generally is pretty, but it is too crowded normally. What a shame.

if you go early (when they open around 8:am) youll be very happy you did. when my husband and i were leaving at 10:ish, there were more people - not bad, just more than what we tend to like. this is great. rent the snorkel - a must - because otherwise you wont see much but a hole in the ground. anyway, we saw turtles, bats in the cave and tons of fish. a must.

A great place to take things at your own pace and explore the cenotes. The combination of the cave views, fish, and sparkling water makes this one of the most memorable experiences in my life.
