I believe its Mayan name "Aktun Ha" and the story goes that people used to wash their cars. Besides divers who are there to explore the underground caves, it is not too busy. If you get lucky you catch a glimpse of the crocodile. There...More

Very close to the road - but once inside the cenote you just sense threes all around. Possibility to jump into the water from a rooftop but also to walk slowly down into the water. Not that big and no caves above waterline but very...More

This isn't as spectacular as the Gand Cenote (just down the road) but worth the visit. We went later in the afternoon and had it all to ourselves. It seems a little more off the beaten path than most cenotes. Although it's an open cenote,...More

This was a nice refreshing swim. It was cool to see the resident crocodile that hangs out at this cenote. Definitely stop by for a quick swim. But not a cenote to spend the whole day or bring kids. Great for diving.

My favorite cenotes are open cenotes like this one: feels like a cool fresh pond. We went in the afternoon after a hot day at the Coba ruins, and this was perfect. Short walk off the road, cheap, easy parking, beautiful snorkling and swimming, lots...More

Reasonably priced, refreshing and the highlight was seeing the small alligator. Easy access of the highway just past Tulum to Coba

Crystal clear water, terrapins, fish, decent diving through the accessible area of the cave system, just a very pleasant cenote.

Easy to find. Cenote seems to be almost in natural condition - good! Some other cenotes in the area are fully crowded and there you can find ”overbuilded” scenery. This is the place where you can find little bit privacy, if you just walk few...More

Popped into this xenote at the end of the day for a swim. The facilities are extremely basic but the swimming here is excellent. There is lots to see including turtles and the water is crystal clear; there is also jumping platform that is not...More
