About
A pair of connected underwater caves that are part of the Sac Actun cave system, Cenotes Dos Ojos is a popular spot for diving and snorkeling. Sunlight seeping in from the crater above reveals impressive rock formations and makes it easy to see the diverse marine life, including colorful fish and sea turtles. Swimming is also enjoyable in the cenotes, great for younger children, with life jackets available for hire. For the best experience, opt for a guided tour that starts earlier in the day before the crowds arrive and takes you into the deeper parts of the cavern. – Tripadvisor

    The number One Cenote, a MUST GO!
    This cenote is just amazing, beautiful, with two lagoons (two eyes), one in the sun and the second one more in the shadow. Cristal clear water, not very cold. You can swim from one eye to the other. In the one in the sun if you snorkle you can see divers. Although I did not dive, this must be an incredible experience. I really recomend this cenote.

    Worthwhile
    The guided tour is the only way to make this a memorable experience. The guide will take you through caves. Otherwise, you float in a pool of water. Be cautious of timing with guides as they may not take you for up to an hour after check-in.

    Beautiful
    This cenote was beautiful. We (apparently) got very lucky and were there on a very quiet day. We practically had the place to ourselves and swam for hours. The water is clean, clear, and a lovely shade of blue. The cave overhangs and surrounding jungle are gorgeous. The price is reasonable and we had no problems navigating, paying, and figuring everything out, despite our very poor Spanish skills.

    Simply beautiful cenotes
    Simply beautiful. The Dos Ojos cenote is actually two cenotes. Ojos 1 is beautiful and the smaller of the two. Ojos 2 is absolutely amazing. To get the full effect you need to have a mask and snorkel. I believe they are there to rent, but I brought my own. They have life jackets, which are mandatory, at each cenote. The blue color is amazing. The formations above and below the water are beautiful.

    Add to my list of awesome experiences
    We had a rental car the entire trip so we could go anywhere we wanted really. Came in handy because it's located atleast 1.5 miles away from the highway. Just told the gate we wanted to go to Dos Ojos. Arrived and Brenda, the guide, approached us and gave us a run through of what to expect. And showed us a map. We paid for a private tour with her for our group of 6. It was 80 dollars a person and included snorkel gear. She also attached a flashlight to our life vest. I am a good swimmer but floating and taking the time to look around was awesome. Two of our friends cannot swim ( and are terrified) and she took extra time to make them feel comfortable and enjoy the tour. It was almost two hours! Saw some small fish and many many deep caves with the flashlight. The bat cave was awesome and saw bats flying around. Took many pictures and videos and she did not hurry us once. She explained a lot of the history and the INS and OUTs of how the cenotes are connected and etc. She then took us to the other opening of the cenote and basically let us do our own thing after and said to stop whenever wed like. It was really cool to see divers way under us as well. Brenda was great and the time we went was almost empty in there. Can't wait to see other cenotes! Ask questions and plan ahead. You'll be fine!

    Have fun, ignore shakedown at entrance.
    This was our first and only cenote experience of the trip. It’s a couple kilometers from the road. So make sure you have a ride. Once you get there, it will be lots of people asking you for tours. Really all you need to bring is a mask and a towel. They are changing rooms there you can also just carry your bags you get a locker if you want to pitch it’s not required to. You can rent snorkel gear if you want. And a few min minutes of snorkeling would cover it. They certainly be there seem to be far more elaborate diving options, but that was above our skill level. We went at 11 o’clock on Thursday and it was not overly crowded.

    Beautiful & quiet. Glad we chose this one.
    Agree 2nd eye is the highlight. Didn’t take the bat cave tour - just snorkeled, brought our own gear, life vests provided. Lots of scuba groups but no one else swimming - had it all to ourselves. Highlight of our trip to Tulum.

    Pair of beautiful part cave part open cenotes
    A pair of very pretty partially opened cenotes. We got there exactly when they opened so we had the place to ourselves which was awesome. There was some decent snorkeling with all the cave formations and small fish all around. It is a bit intimidating for the young ones. My 4 year old didn’t venture very far from the dock. I wouldn’t say these were particular fun cenotes but they were definitely beautiful and glad we did them and got the pictures. Note they do charge 1000mxn if you want to use your drone or other prof photography equipment beyond a smart phone or disposable. Also be warned there are a lot of bugs and your not supposed to wear bug repellent as it harms the formations.

    An excellent way to spend a few hours in beautiful surroundings
    Some practical information first; we had a hire car so arrived via that and we are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids under 10). We arrived late in the day (around 3:30) which on one hand worked out well as we had each cenote pretty much to ourselves but on the other hand we ran out of time there (they close promptly at 5). After leaving the highway the ticket office is pretty much the first building you come to. It has a large thatched roof and is to the left of a barrier. You need to pay here, we paid 400 pesos per adult and 200 pesos per child. We were told initially there was no card payment but when we said we wouldn't have enough cash to cover snorkel rental a card machine appeared (we paid a 5% surcharge for this). It's marked as a 3 kilometre drive from the ticket office to the entry to the car park for Dos Ojos and you pass a number of other cenotes along the way. The road is fairly bumpy so go steady! It was quiet when we got there so plenty of space in the car park. At the entry desk we paid to hire snorkels - total was just over 1400 pesos but 1200 of that was a refundable deposit. There are lockers there also but we chose to bring our belongings with us as it wasn't busy You need to shower before going in to wash off suncream. The showers are next to a bathroom block (well kept) We went to 'Eye One' first, there was a diving area to the left and a large snorkelling area to the right. You pick up a life vest next to the cenote. The water was beautiful, quite refreshing and clear. Plenty of small fish to see. I'd say 'Eye 2' was the most impressive one but we didn't leave enough time to do it properly. I'd recommend planning on at least 2 hours at the park. In eye 2 there were lots of bats flying around and you can swim between the 2 main chambers. There weren't any guides around by the time we got there but I wouldn't say one was essential unless you are keen to understand more about the cenotes rather than just enjoy the swimming, snorkelling and surroundings.

    A must dive cenote in Tulum
    A very cool cenote for diving. We have done the batcave line which was very cool with a bat cave half way where you come up for air in an internal cave full of bats. Not a deep dive but it is dark with not much life. Fantastic structures that with the light come to life, bring the camera or go pro because it is worth it. It is relatively shallow, most times you're hovering a meter above the sand and silt so watch the buoyancy so that you don't stir up the silt. Although it looks a bit scary, you feel like you are in the cave system with no easy way out (either forward or backwards), it actually offers quite a few side exits so it is very safe. It is one of the must cenotes to dive in Tulum.

Great deep cenote partially under rock roof. Totally different feeling that the one in cenote azul. A lot of shade so it can get little-bit cold after prolonged stay in the water.

By far my favorite Cenote, but I’m sure I’ll see more as I continue to explore the Yucatán peninsula 😊. Make sure to wear a wetsuit when visiting these Cenotes, the water temps can be a bit cool.

Take the guided snorkeling tour!
Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, showing us a novel way to explore the caves, giving us a chance to marvel at the geology, as well as getting up close and personal with the local residents and stay out of the heat!

Nice cave but way too expensive. 400 pesos or 25 US$ per person is way too much for just a swim spot in two semi open caves. After 2x30min my kids where done swimming. Seen much nicer ones for lot less money. Like every other Mexican tourist attraction there is a guy at the entrance trying to up-sell with packages. We left the place and felt ripped off.
