Very underwhelming cenote, crowded with tourists whose diving and kicking takes the clarity of of the water. Poor maintenance from a small "group" of locals that charge $15 MXN to let you in and don't bother to clean animal feces from the spring deck,maintain proper...More

This is a nice (little) fresh water Cenote. Since it is quiet small you should go on a cloudy day, otherwise it will be really busy. There are also some lovely raccoons.

Went on a three island tour and this was one of the stops. I’ve been to Mexico before and seen real Cenotes and that’s interesting, this is just a really small fresh water lagoon. Nothing that I’d recommend spending money to see.

It was a cool spot to visit and go for a dip. The water is cold and sweet! There are iguanas and raccoons roaming around the area which is fun to watch. They have a little restaurant in the location as well. The cenote is...More

I went to this place on a tour at 9am, which meant our boat had the place to ourselves. Highly recommend this hour, because if it were the usually crowded situation, it would have not been very nice. It is much smaller than the photos...More

This place is teeming with wildlife, the boat journey over was magical with little dolphins swimming next to the boat. Once moored you take a walk up a cute little path surrounded by crabs and lizards. The history of this place is awesome and added...More

I visited this lagoon with VIPS tours with Negro & Jaime, the owner. It was a full day tour with many good friends and i loved the fresh waters and the interesting historic spot!

This was the last stop of a boat tour we took. There is an admission charge, 15 pesos each (.79) and is a nice civilized but not touritie site to visit. You can swim the clear water or enjoy the view from the tower in...More

A bit over crowded on the day of our visit but I can see how great it can be if you go there when all tourists are not there all at the same time with 20 buses.

We came here as part of 3-island tour from Holbox. It was really really crowded with tourists (as in, you're bumping into people all the time in the water or on the decks around the water). Granted, the water was nice and cool and refreshing....More

The tour is by boat so unless you have a boat I would think tour is the best way to go- only 20-30$ USD per person. Think I paid $800 pesos for the 2 of us. You can sign up for the tour in el centro de holbox - there are... More
