Good diversion on a rainy day

Easy, cheap, and memorable. Great, affordable cab service. Can't imagine this place would be too enjoyable if crowded, so go early.

I was determined that no trip to Yucatan is complete without a visit to one of the infamous cenotes. Therefore, we headed to Grand Cenote just outside of Tulum. You are charged 150 pesos for what is a very underwhelming experience in my opinion. The place is crawling with tourists and not much to look at. I can imagine that... More

We did not like how confusing the pricing was, but it was a nice activity on our tip. The caves were cool, and the water was so clear!

We like to explore different cenotes especially after a long day under the sun. There is nothing better then a refreshing swim. To be honesty this was not our favorite one. We came at the end of the day to avoid a lot of ppl and it was still pretty crowded which makes it hard to enjoy the swim and... More

This is one of the most awesoem cavern dives as it is shallow and loaded with stalagtites. You can swim and snorkel here as well and experience the beauty of mexico's cenote beauty first hand.

Great cenote and definitely one of the best in Tulum. Note the actual entry price is 90 but in a typical tourist ruse you'll struggle to get hold of a ticket - especially if booked through a hotel or hostel - for less than 120. Great fun to see the turtles underwater - we spent hours swimming around.

We went here after a very hot day at Tulum and we're so happy we did, it was such a beautiful, refreshing experience. Once you swim into the cave and duck dive down while looking out, it's such a breath-taking, beautiful view!

It was raining one afternoon so we went to this cenote. We spent under an hour there and it was perfect! super cool to look under water so definitely rent a snorkel. Loved it, I definitely recommend stopping by

The place is out of this world! Especially if you are going to dive with some dive equipment! It is so beautiful, if I'm back I would go there again! Totally worth the entree fee.
