We spent an afternoon here swimming and cliff jumping in the crystal clear waters which were refreshing but not overly cold once you got used to it. The Cenote is set about 15 minutes walk in from the highway, the entrance to which is just south of the Barcelo Resort and is easily reached by either colectivo or taxi (if... More

We visited all three Cenotes side by side in this area. Jardin del Eden has its own charm. Clear, clean, cool water--Cenote Jardín del Eden is an excellent swimming, snorkeling, and diving destination. It is a fresh water sinkhole (Cenote) surrounded by limestone walls. There is a approximately 6 metre jumping cliff, which provided no end of entertainment. We came... More

The garden of Eden cenote is a waterhole with limestone walls surrounding a beautiful clear water pool. Good for cliff jumping, the drop is around 6m high so not too hardcore I believe. If you're not into jumping you can just go for a swim or snorkel. Water is fresh not salty. I saw some people even doing scuba diving... More

We took a colectivo from Playa del Carmen and got off at the highway. Walked approximately 15 min to the cenote. 100 pesos/person. We were almost alone for the first hour. Nice clean water with plenty of small fish to see. Snorkel rental.

Worth of the visit. It is like a small lake. There was not many access to the water and it was a bit crowded. This cenote was easy to visit from Playa del Carmen. We took collectivo from downtown and it cost 35 pesos per person. The trip took only 25 minutes. From the highway where collectivo dropped us was... More

This cenote accommodates a lot of people. There are a few different spots to enter in and/or jump off the edge into. The water is very clear and beautiful for snorkelling. Great for kids too.

If you are doubting which cenote to visit - choose this one (better in sunny day)! It is really amazing: transparent water with different blue and green colours, not so cold to swim. You can do some snorkeling: there are many fishes and you can see how deep cenote is. Really enjoyed it! There are toilets there, some benches for... More

For a cenote swim (must be experienced), check out the El Jardin del Eden, a short 5 min car ride south of the PA gates. Entrance fee is 100 Peso/person. It’s spacious and peaceful even at full capacity and even with kids (and adults!) jumping off the 15 foot cliff at the north end of the sinkhole. So much fun!

Clear, clean, cool water--Cenote Jardín del Eden is an excellent swimming, snorkeling, and diving destination. We visited twice, once by a local colectivo van and once by rental car; from Playa del Carmen either method is easy. One bonus: if you stand in shallow water, little fish will nibble at your feet (a more natural and less expensive version of... More

This was a good shallow, second dive after diving Cenote Angelita earlier in the day. This cenote is a good place for swimming and snorkeling, as well as cavern diving. Crystal clear water. Cool haloclines. Beautiful light shows through mangrove roots in cenote connected to main pool (? Bonanza?). Fair amount of fresh water fish too. We dove with Martin... More
