NOT the best cenote, but a super cool walk down into the cavern to be greeted by a well lit, open cavernous cenote filled with remnants of the last ice age. Surprisingly lovely in the middle of town. An some big diving platforms!

We did not eat at the restaurant, we only enjoyed the cenote. This was the loveliest of the 4 cenotes we visited this trip. Not crowded, not touristy, no one trying to take your picture or sell you guide services, and 30 pesos entry fee. Cannot beat that.

We took my parents & children here en route back to Cancun from Merida. They loved watching the beautiful cenote while we ate. Great Yucatan cuisine, delicious fresh pineapple or watermelon water, & fast courteous service! One of our best stops to eat on our road trip. Highly recommend.

The cenote is dramatic and pretty. You can walk around or jump in and swim. The restaurant is a nice place to relax, eat local fare and people watch. There were local dancers too! A fun place, and a cool respite on a warm afternoon.

A busy cenote but made the trip from the Mayan ruin even better. It was cool and refreshing. This place was an amazing end to an amazing day

I visit this cenote years ago and I went back two weeks ago and is still beautiful and clean. You need to pay 30 pesos to enter and swim if you like. There is a restaurant at the entrance but we didn't eat there because it looked completely empty ( not a good sign). Love to visit this cenote even... More

Visited this Cenote mid afternoon after the occasional coach trip pulls in on way back from Chichen Itza to Cancun. Some excellent jumps up to ten metres. Great fun. Water clean and fresh. Catfish abound and the species that if you sit still give you a pedicure. There is a restaurant and it was one of the best I went... More

Wonderful experience beautiful Cenote traditional additional food of the Yucatán. Handmade tortillas are to die for and the hot sauce is very very good. YUM!

Friendly staff. The shrimp cocktail of my gf was very awful. I love shrimps but this one was tomato Sauce with water and some not tasting shrimps. We couldn't eat it. I ordered pollo negro- a so called local specialty. Maybe we were just the wrong persons to eat it but it tasted awful as well. The pollo (chicken) was... More

If you haven't seen a Cenote it's a good place to start. Only 10 minutes on foot from the city center.
