The temperature is ideal, the crystal clear water is beautiful. I really liked swimming there. Fun little excursion. And they have empanadas for 15 pesos if you get hungry. :) Entrance is 25 pesos.

This was my last stop on the "three island" tour. Having been to many other cenotes in the region I thought this one was small and pretty underwhelming. It was fine to jump in and splash around for a few minutes, but I definitely wouldn't...More

The place is beautiful, the Cenote is clean but it doesn’t have any facilities, the restrooms are very dirty and the restaurant is so bad attended, the personal is very grumpy. Not a good experience

We discover this place on the tour of the three islands. We stay there only for one hour. You pay 25 pesos at the entrance (aprox 1.25 USD). You can swim inside the lagoon with very clear water. After swimming we eat Ceviche there it...More

Not the most amazing cenote, but perfect for relaxing and swimming. The water is perfect and the cold water helps recovering from the high temperatures!

This is a nice cenote to jump in and cool down. The wáter is clear and very refreshing. It is just a square cenote so its not that interesting in compared to other cenotes but nice for a quick swim.

The tour is by boat so unless you have a boat I would think tour is the best way to go- only 20-30$ USD per person. Think I paid $800 pesos for the 2 of us. You can sign up for the tour in el centro de holbox - there are... More
