We arrived here after seeing the ruins, at 11:30 a.m. We had a rental van and drove ourselves and it was about 6 km out of Coba (sign pointing to a road on the left after you have gone around the end of the lake) paved most of the way then a bumpy dirt road for about 1 km off on the right side of the road. There are 3 cenotes in this area and we were aiming for this one. There is a unisex change area and cold showers and private washrooms that were clean but no toilet seat :) Can't remember the admission cost but about $5 u.s. per person. There is a spiral staircase going down and a large wooden platform with railing out over the water. There was a man watching the place and he told us the depth ranged from 4 - 70 meters. They put in lighting and there is a small hole in the top (the only natural light) which has tree roots coming down through it. The water is crystal clear and you can see a few fish swimming. There are a couple of ropes tied across and just under the water if you want to sit on them to rest. We took a couple of noodles and the kids took their snorkel masks. There were a couple of small inner tubes for our use. The water is cool but not unbearably so. It is very refreshing. We were a group of 6: parents with 3 kids ages 11, 15, 18 and Grandma, and we all enjoyed this cenote. We had been to one open and one underground prior to this one. We had been there about 45 min when a small tour van came and then another. It became very noisy and silly with all these young adults around. We would recommend getting there by 11:30 to hopefully have the place to yourself. We left at this point. Would definitely go back.
