Cenotes near Barcelo Maya Resort

I have heard that there is a cenote across the road from the Barcelo Maya Resort. If so, is it within walking distance of the resort? Can you snorkel in it? Is there an entance fee? How does it compare with other cenotes in the Mayan Riviera?

If its not a particularly good one, is there a good one that can be reached by collectivo from Barcelo Maya?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

1. Re: Cenotes near Barcelo Maya Resort

There are three or four (or even more?!) almost right across the highway from the Barcelo resort/Puerto Aventuras.

They are El Jardines del Eden, Tajma Ha cenote, and Chikin Ha cenotes and Cenote Azul too.

El Eden is very large and good for swimming and snorkeling and divers have a cavern diving entrance there, too. Azul is very pretty but smaller, and you can get a fish pedicure there. You can jump from a ledge into both of these.

They are very much worth a visit! You CAN walk from the Barcelo but it's quite a hike- I would suggest a taxi from and back to the hotel.

Another great cenote to visit is Dos Ojos, down toward Tulum, a taxi is a must for that one from the hotel.
