Very affordable, little place with a beautiful open cenote. Clean, not overcrowded, helpful staff in a gorgeous part of Mexico

10 of us went one morning. Very refreshing cool waters. I would recommend taking water shoes and definitely a snorkel. Loads of fish to see and lots which enjoyed cleaning feet which is a very strange sensation. Would recommend. Lovely big iguana to watch.

Water was clear and small fish do the tickle spa for free. Jump off the 8 foot cliff. The cenote is perfect for a quick inexpensive trip from Playa del Carmen. Most of the pool is not deep and good for small children. It could...More
