“Worth the money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Amazing, a scuba diving experience like no other. Worth the money! A bit of a walk from where you set up to where you enter the water.

“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

This is by far the best part of our travels so far through Mexico and Central America. We saw information about the cenote on a blog online and decided to have a go at walking there from our hostel in Playa del Carmen. Despite being #4 on TA very few of the locals know of this place (we were stopped and offered help by at least 4 locals who thought we were out of our minds!) but it does exist and it is truly beautiful! My husband and I were fortunate enough to have the place to ourselves when we arrived. From the cool waters, to the amazing bats and serenity of the place, this has to be seen to be believed. The guys at the entrance and those that helped see us into the two cenotes were great too. A must if you're in the Playa area!!

Great day away from the beach, but still a day in the water. Excellent guides are available and comfortable transportation. A very enjoyable day!

“By far the best part of our vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We actually took this as an excursion from our cruise ship, and far exceeded our dreams. Our tour guide was from Xplor, named Pablo, and was a delight as a guide and travel companion! Before entry to the cenote, we were given a brief review of Mayan history and the importance of the rivers to the ancient Mayans (about 15 minutes). We were then blessed by a Mayan Priest before entering the cenote through a wooden walkway. This walkway with handrail was easy to navigate for all ages, and I am 55. After wading through the cenote for a few hundred yards, it opened into a large room, which had an opening from above, that was simply majestic. Here, we were able to take off our helmets, (so we didn't hit our heads while getting there on the cave ceiling) and swim in relative freedom, although we still had life vests on. We went the day after a tropical storm hit, so the water level was high, yet rarely over our heads. After further exploration, we returned to this room and we allowed to swim without life vests, if we were comfortable in doing so. I truly never wanted to leave this place, ever....
