The best cenote!!! Sparkling clean medicinal water very well illuminated for awesome pictures. Go to the sides to see the best underwater cave entrances.

Great cenote with that underground cave setting. There are a few options here to swim. You can either just swim around the main pools or go for a little snorkeling adventure through the little cave runs.
Loved every minute of it

We visited Taak Bi Ha on a recommendation from a tour guide we used whilst on our trip in the Quintana Roo. Having watched countless online videos and looked at what felt like a thousand different cenotes the local recommendation meant a lot and we decided to give Taak Bi Ha a go.

On arrival we used the bamboo changing huts to get changed into our water gear and water shoes were a must! There is a rocky walk between the changing area, down the steps into the underground cenote and some of the rocks in the cenote are slippery so the shoes help ALOT!!!

On walking down into the cenote there is a small opening in the floor and stairs that are more like ladders, it is easier to go down backwards and you have to mind your head...you have been warned!

Once inside the cenote it is breathtaking! Slightly cooler in temperature being underground, the light ripples through the water showcasing the beautiful and crystal clear blue tones. It is extremely spacious inside, large and open with some artificial lights so that it feels open and airy it isn't a major concern for someone that is claustrophobic at this point. There are also plenty of places to drop a bag so that you can keep a towel, some dry clothes etc. There are lockers on offer as well but not necessary if you just have clothes and a towel.

The water is MIGHTY FRESH! On a day of 30 degrees it was certainly easier to just get in as opposed to take ages progressively, although once in the water you quickly adjust and it is a saving grace from the hot and humid jungle setting.

The cenote is effectively split into 2 areas, a shallow area and a deeper area. The shallow area has ledges that allow for a light snorkelling, paddling in the water with some ledges of deeper water to cross. The deeper area is just that...not possible to stand but plenty to swim around or float if that is preferred.

The cenote is part of the Sac Actun System - the longest underground river system in the world with 369km of explored lines! When you are in the water it is recommended to use a waterproof flashlight as when you go underwater a flashlight really reveals the true hidden waters of Taak Bi Ha - after all that is what the name means in Mayan!

After a group of divers descended to the depths of the cenote on a dive through the system we were the one of 2 COUPLES in the cenote. When I emerged from a dive underwater no one was talking, it was quiet, peaceful and serene! All you could hear was the water droplets, ripples and bats flying around the ceiling.

After all the research we did, trusting the local guides gave us an experience we would never forget!!!

This place will blow your darn mind. It is out of this world. Snorkeling around the perimeter was an absolute blast.

What a beautiful cenote! It is a gorgeous cave with gorgeous snorkeling. Bring a water proof flashlight.

Water is chilly, but it’s the same with all the caves in the area.

Very nice underground cenote. Not many steps to get down into, a big plus for us. Water is cool but not cold. Comfortable once in. Not as busy as the ones near chechen Itza or coba. Close to Xel Ha and Xcaret. Road getting can be rough depending on previous weather and when then grade it. We had to go slow in VW Venta but made it ok. This cenote is located in Dos Ojos park area and you pass several other cenotes including dos Ojos cenotes along way so you can make a half day of stopping at others. Entry is 350 peso, more than most others but I think very worth it. In late afternoon we were were there with just 5 other people. 2 were scuba diving and 3 just swimming. Beautiful.

Absolutely breathtaking! It was so much bigger than I expected. The water was turquoise and crystal clear. The stalactite formations were stunning. The water temperature was not cold like some other cenotes, a little cool which is refreshing in the heat. It's bright, well lit and clean. For someone who loves the water, caves, and anything resembling a grotto... it was my heaven. Some steep narrow stairs to enter but it's not a long way down, turn your feet sideways as you step down holding the hand rails. Piece of cake. Bring a snorkle mask or at least some goggles so you don't miss the beautiful view under water as well. Trust me!

Beautiful. We went as part of an organized tour to tulum and cenotes. It is in the same area as several other cenotes and there is a delicious restaurant in the complex (Restaurante Juanita). (You do need to drive among the different cenotes and restaurant, but it’s all close by). This cenote was a magical experience. One of the highlights of my vacation. A unique experience.
