The Grand Cenote was one of the highlights of our family's trip recently (and we did a lot on that trip!). Snorkeling alongside small tortoises and into a cave with bats overhead was nothing short of awesome. Get there early since it fills up quickly after opening and enjoy a reprieve from the hot Mexican sun.

This was different from the other two cenotes we had visited and we enjoyed it very much. Beautiful setting, nice (short) swimming through caves, underwater sightings were fun, bats above were also great. Water cool but clear. We took three young boys and they had a great time, though it got quite busy!!!

We stopped here to enjoy swimming for the first time in a fresh water cenote outside of Tulum. The grounds were lovely and well cared for. Very good bathroom and changing facilities as well. The crowd there was very international - German, French, and many Mexican nationals. A friendly, fun atmosphere! And, note it was inexpensive.

This was an absolutely stunning cenote and if you go early like we did, you have the place to explore with very few others. The water is crystal clear and the light coming through the trees is spectacular. If you don't like snorkels, as some in my family do not, bring regular swimming goggles and you can see just fine. And make sure to have cash -- they don't take cards for anything. As everyone else says, get there when it opens, or close to it, as the experience is different if there are hordes of people.

It's a beautifull place..but you are certainly not the only visitor. Expensive ticket and snorkel rent.
