So cool!

Can't say I ever thought I would be brave enough to swim in a cave but it was amazing! I loved that it was light enough that you could see what was under you the whole time!

This was a fun hour for the money spent. We quickly forgot how buoyant you are in salt water as we jumped into the water at the cave and had to work to stay afloat. :). We took the scooter out and made it part of a day of travelling. If I recall it was $5 cuc. Worth the trip... More

This cenote is very disappointing after visiting ones in Mexico. It's small and not much to explore which was ok because our tour operator brought us there but forgot to bring the snorkel equipment lol I can't believe I paid to do this but honestly don't even feel like I missed out...

Great road side attraction. Crystal clear water ranging from 2m to 22m deep. Recommend a light if you plan to snorkel the cave. Cool cave formations. The stairs are definitely a good workout as they descend deep underground to access the water. There are a few lookout platforms along the way down to take pics from.

This cave although small, is very beautiful. It is a short stop on most tours and if you go there alone you need no more than 30 minutes to appreciate the whole thing. The stairs can be challenging for older persons.

We didn't come to this cave with a tour because it was very expensive, but we took a taxi that cost us 80CUC for a group of 5 (roundtrip) and we each had to pay the 5 CUC entrance fee to the cave. The place is absolutely beautiful and the water is crystal clear. There are lifeguards on duty which... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The beauty was extraordinary. Well worth the trip to coral beach and Saturno cave

I've gone on the jeep safari tour 4 times just to go to this cave, it is absolutely beautiful! Keep a very close eye on your belongings or they will disappear. I think this was the best part of the safari tour to be honest.

The entry fee is 5 pesos each, plus another 5 pesos if you want to take your camera inside. If your camera does not take good low light photos, don't bother! Just enjoy the tour. Wear good walking shoes if possible!
