We were pleasantly surprised that you could swim at Cenote Zaci. Someone had told us that you couldn't - not so. Some brave/foolhardy local lads were leaping from the highest spots into the cenote which provided entertainment. If it's a hot day this is a good spot to cool off, and a very different type of swimming hole, especially if... More

Amazing fun. Have been multiple times now. Have the Chaya Empanadas and take a bottle of the habanero salsa home. Homemade hot tortillas. Lovely stFf and service. If you are lucky you will catch the folk dancing and then swim in cenote.

Our hotel was only a few blocks away so we decided to visit cenote zaci. Cheap to get in, no changing or lockers tho so be prepared. Water was cold and pretty clear. There were plenty of fish, some quite large. Plenty of spots to jump in at various heights, depending on how adventurous you are. Seemed a little run... More

Right in the center of town is the Cenote Zaci (Mayan name of Valladolid before the Spanish came), a gorgeous fresh water sink hole with a great restaurant looking over it. The food is very good and the prices are moderate. If you dine in the restaurant you can go down to the cenote for free.

This cenote is literally in the middle of Valladolid town! Walk down a set of concrete stairs and you enter a water underworld. If you are in Valladolid this place is a must-see. We spent a couple of hours there one afternoon and it was the perfect place to cool off. There are fish in the water that will nibble... More

Our tour went there after visiting Chichen Itza. It is interesting to see a big sink hole, there are people swimming in the water. The place needs a little bit of TLC.

Located only a few blocks from our hotel near the town square, this was a pleasant surprise right in town.
