Liked this cenote scuba experience better than Car Wash; would liked to have hung out for swimming here, too. Super-fun jump into the water (~2-3 meters) while fully loaded with scuba tanks! If you have a bat hangup, this place is not for you.

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

I was there with my wife in September 2016 We had to pay 80MXN /person entrance fee to get to the cenote. There was one guy more working in the garden just next to the cenote. All this area around cenote was separated by fence. We left our backpack and clothes on the ground and went down to cenote. After... More

Loved it because #1 it was not crowded. We stayed for a couple hours and it was nearly empty. Our private cenote. In addition to exploring, I must say the most fun was jumping and diving into it with my teenage boys. There is a large main opening and two smaller openings. You do not need to book a tour... More

I did a scuba dive here. The halocline effects in this cenote are incredible, and there aren't a lot of people. Would happily go back.

We never did get to swim at this cenote, which we were bummed about, but I thought I would just mention a couple things – this cenote has no lockers, and it also closes earlier than the other cenotes in the area. The first day we tried to visit, we rode bikes, so we had no where to lock up... More

After visiting the Gran Cenote, we headed back and stopped at this place (I called it Cenote Calavera). One other couple was visiting and we ran into a few divers who were on their way out. Definitely take a leap into the cenote from the big hole above (or through one of the small holes if you're feeling brave. There... More
