Watch out, when you arrive you will pay the entrance fees of 250/p. But then comes the scam, you will walk some feet and, before reaching the Cenote, 2 guys will require you to pay hundreds of pesos if you want to take photos or videos.
Tell them you are not interested, hide your cameras and continue your walk to the Cenote. There will be nobody to watch you, so that you can do whatever you want !

Different from all the rest, quite a small cenote with a 2-3m jump into the fresh clear water. And a couple of other smaller holes to jump into which looked more hairy so I didn't bother! Pretty safe as everyone seemed to be watching out for each other. Only 250 pesos/head. Great opportunity for good action photos! I'd highly recommend it here.

All I can say is get here early!! We got here right when it opened and there was only a few people there, and it filled up quickly after. The cenote is small, and if you want good pictures you have to wait your turn. This cenote is not for the faint of heart — it can be scary climbing down the ladder and there are tons of bats in the cage! But it is a super unique experience, there’s a bar on site, and the water is absolutely heavenly. We took a taxi from our hotel, and there is not a ton of taxi’s to hail after your visit. Either drive yourself, pay the taxi to stay, or be prepared to wait on the side of the road to hail a cab. We eventually got one after about 20 min of waiting. Overall, glad we did this one vs the much more basic gran cenote!

Had read that it was 100 peso entry just a few months ago, so was surprised it was 250 pesos (or $17 USD) upon arrival. Cash only. Extra cost to bring a gopro camera, drone, or rent lifejackets/snorkle/fin. The water is pleasant (not freezing) and if you can arrive early morning it is a fun little (emphasis little) cenote with a couple meter deep water that leads into unknown dark depth tunnels at the edges. Apparently a good cenote for very brave scuba divers with lots of cave diving experience (Temple of Doom entrance). However, once a group of 12 or more instragram influencers arrives, it isn't big enough for them hogging the single swing, ladder, and jumping point with constant pictures. Small cave ceiling with bats and swallows and tiny fish was fun, but this cenote isn't big enough for more than a half dozen people at a time, even in the off season it overfills by lunch.

This place was a total scam. They over charged us because we were Americans. They made us pay 650 pesos when the sign clearly said it was 250 pesos, our friends later in the day was also only charged 250. Completely rude and definitely trying to scam tourists. Not to mention it’s a super small cenote and honestly not that fun, just a hole in the ground. Super sketchy, avoid this and go to Cenote Gran down down the street!

Avoid this cenote! They completely scammed us. The sign says 250 pesos and when we entered they asked us for 650 pesos. I said I saw the price outside and they said that was for locals and there is a different price for tourists. We later learned this was not true and went back and they would not communicate with us. The cenote itself was unique but the Gran close by was nicer and much better run. Beware of the shadiness and do not support them!

Beautiful cenote with not too many people. When I first arrived there was a line of folks getting pictures on the swing and the ladder, but after a bit the people thinned out and it was jut me and one other couple. It was beautiful to float looking up at the sky through the cenote holes, and jumping in was terrifying but fun.

This cenote is much quieter than the nearby gran cenote. It’s a big hole as well as smaller ones nearby that you can jump into (~9+ meters deep). We got there in the afternoon and there were very few people. It’s an absolute blast to jump into over and over again. There’s also a bar on site (not sure if they have food).

Highly recommend a visit.

Beautiful and magic cenote close to Tulum downtown (just 10 mins by car), you can jump into the crystal clear waters. Highly recommended.

Another beautiful Cenote with some awesome unique features!! There are two small openings to jump into which was thrilling and scary fun!! There is also the lovely swing but there is a line if you go at busy times. You can also jump in the large opening for less of a scare. Smaller Cenote but unique and worth it!!
