I prefer above ground cenotes but Palomitas was beautiful, and a must for anyone who likes geological formations.

We visited this Cenote with our lovely taxi driver (check out Maya adventure transportación peninsular on FB). It was empty when we got there (about 2 pm) and we had the whole place just for us. They have ropes and free floating stuff you can...More

Beautiful cenote with a minimum of people. Clear water with beautiful color, very nice surroundings. The cenote you must to see.

The Cenote Palomitas is an excellent introduction to cenote swimming. Connoisseurs of cenotes may rank this one fairly low but it is very convenient and is a beautiful place for a cool swim in the heat of the day. Also, not crowded so plenty of...More

Chilly water! Beautiful, enclosed cenote somewhat outside of Valladolid. We were one of only 2 groups visiting (total of 6 people)!

Beautiful closed cenote, with a family spirit. You can jump into the water from 2 to 5m ! Lavatories, showers, cabins are free and people are very friendly. Small typical village near the cenote: you are welcome! More than 4 cenotes in the same périmètre(2km)...Enjoy!

This is one of the most beautiful cenotes i've visited. It's underground and it is enormous and beautiful. You enter a cave and take steps down to enter the clear waters. The best part was that since it is less known it also also less...More
