Jump off the platform and cool off

This cenote is just a little off the beaten path and is fantastic. This cenote has charm and lots of places to relax.Stay for the day. No glass bottles and no sunscreen.

Cenote Crystal is a large Cenote where you can go cavern diving, swimming or snorkeling. All is very popular so go early to beat the crowds

This place is so cool literally. Jump off a cliff, swim and get a pedicure by fish. A bit pricey compared to the other Cenotes but a must visit and worth it.

We loved loved loved this place. It was recommended by our hotel staff and they were right! It wasn't crowded and the water was crystal clear in the cenote across the street from the parking lot. Highly recommended! We loved floating and diving and taking photos at this place.

My hair came out super full and bushy from this swim apparently due to all of the minerals. This is very nice and quaint and it is fun to watch people brave the 12 to 15 foot diving platform. Just a sweet sweet day. Sigh

We ended up at Cenote Crystal as a conciliation after another attraction in the area was closed. Positives: Cheap. I think it was around 120 pesos per person (about $6-7). No crowds. There were only three other people there when we arrived and they left shortly after our party of four got there. Clean. The water was cool (not freezing)... More

Of all the cenotes I visited in Tulum this was by far the worst and by far, somewhat ironically, the least "crystal". There was slime or, as my friend called it, "mung" floating on the surface and it got in your hair and down your snorkel which was to be honest pretty gross. We stayed about half an hour and...

This is a nice little cenote not far from Tulum. Not many tourists or other people when we were there so it was pleasant.
