The only other cenote we had been to was Ek-balam, after we toured that site. Ek-balam was fantastic - a natural oasis open to the sky with swinging vines to do Tarzan leaps into the pool, and very few other people around. Completely natural setting, very refreshing. Dzitnup, on the other hand, is highly developed, and is a true cavern, with just a hole letting sunlight in. Colored lighting makes the whole thing surreal, and the vendors are a little out-of-the ordinary. The teens, however, loved it. We could barely get them out of there. The deep plunge end is very deep indeed. If I recall correctly, the sign said 30 meters. I know I couldn't touch the bottom after clearing my ears twice on the way down.
