We visited this cenote after a very hot tour of the Coba ruins. Keep in mind that this was the first cenote we had ever visited and we didn't know what to expect. The shower area and washrooms were basic but clean. We descended easily down a sturdy wooden set of spiral stairs to reach a huge cavern. There was a large pier out over the pool and it was easy to get into the water. The water was so refreshing, crystal clear and cool - we didn't want to leave. However, I found myself breathless, barely able to paddle about and I needed to hang onto an inner tube in the water. I started to wonder if it was time for a cardiac bypass! My husband and son felt the same so we reluctantly left the water. It was only after we climbed back to the surface that our driver mentioned that they had not turned the air exchange unit on. He said that was why another couple who were there at the same time had left so soon. Well I'm relieved that I don't need a bypass! It's too bad that this happened because we would have really enjoyed our refreshing dip and stayed longer.

We went to this after visiting the Coba Ruins which was the absolutely perfect choice. We were very hot from walking, riding bikes and climbing the pyramid and this was so refreshing. The water was a little chilly getting in but within a minute or two very comfortable. My daughter and I snorkeled for a while and when she was tired she used one of the tire tubes that are available to float around in. There was a gentleman sitting on the dock who watched your belongings and kept an eye on everyone in the water. It was very safe and soooo much fun.

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.

We would not have found this place if it weren't for our guide that we had for the day. Thank you Rodolfo! After visiting Coba Ruins, we came to this underground cenote. We didn't know what to expect. You arrive and you immediately are asked to take a shower. They do not want the cenote polluted with lotion, sunblock, hair gel, makeup, etc. Then you walk to a spiral staircase and walk down the stairs 20 meters (60 feet) until you get to the cenote. They have built the staircase and also a deck over the water. Once down there, it's dark except for a light. The light is necessary otherwise it would be completely black. They also have to pump oxygen into the cave. The amazing part is that the water is crystal clear. You can see fish and rock formations under the water and the whole place looks like an aquarium. The water is cool but not as cold as you might think. We swam with masks so we could see and it was just an amazing experience. Our kids (12, 14, 17) were a little nervous at first but then jumped in and had a blast. When we got there it was just us and another small group but eventually a large group showed up and that was just as we were leaving so we had good timing. Bring your bathing suit, towels, a mask and maybe swim shoes with you. I believe the price for admission was $6 (about 76 pesos). The road to access the cenote is a little long and bumpy but it was a great experience and something we'll always remember.
