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.

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...More
