Located way off the beaten path, this cenote is definitely a hidden gem. It has three total cenotes in the area. It is cool and amazing. You can look at the fish and beaches tropical birds in the area. It is very affordable. It is...More

But the archeological sites come first. You can do a nice bike ride back to the cenotes with a rental, inside of driving back. Good fun.

We had a great experience here, visiting following a morning at Uxmal. We found X Batun to be a bit crowded so we went over to the Cenote Dzonbacal first (both are included in admission) and had that cenote briefly to ourselves (about noon on...More

You can't make this kind of thing up. Gorgeous, clean and great fun. Very few tourists, it's simply nature at its best

We visit this one and also Dzonbakal as part of an organized tour. I loved them. Two different structures, but both beautiful, with crystal and warm water. Great experience. Make sure to bring your swimsuit.

While these cenotes are indeed pretty, and so much so that they have been used in music videos and telenovelas, the overcrowding is constantly getting worse. I strongly discourage anyone from visiting them (there are two) on weekends or holidays during warm weather. It will...More

This cenote is really one of the most beautiful one. The problem is many people knows that so its very crowded. You should go either early in the morning or later in the afternoon when the buses still not there or are going. You can...More

This cenote is literally the most beautiful one we visited during our trip. There are those fish which start to bite your legs, like a pedicure :) the blue color gets darker behind, where it gets deep. the location is stunning, the water is clean...More

They will open at 09:00 and with 30-40 minutes each cenote you have enough time Before the crowd came.
