Absolutely gorgeous cenote! Crystal clear water, great platform and cliff to jump from! Great for kids--there are large rocks that create great shallow spots for kids to rest on when swimming. They only take pesos at the entrance, but well worth the $100 pesos!

Beautiful clear water for snorkeling and diving, plus fun high points to jump off into the water. Also had nice shaded areas and a couple of picnic tables for our lunch. Truly delightful all around.

My family and I walked here while staying at the Barcelo across the street. The cenote is very cool and there are several places where you can jump from ledges. My son loved it. This cenote is also very deep and there were a lot of divers in the water when we went. Although there were quite a few people... More

We returned to Jardin del Eden after a couple years. It got better! They added a gate, for security reasons, they also added more "palapas" (thatch huts) and the best improvement: Diving plataforms. They have two platforms that people can safely jump from all day even though THE TREE is still there and one can still clib the tree and... More

Lovely large fresh water swimming hole to cool off in and swim/relax in. This spot is great for families to snorkel or scuba dive in. Jump into it and play all while having Doctor Fish nibble away at your dead feet skin. Beautiful clear colored waters.

We have an excellent swim in this cenote. Our kids particularly enjoyed jumping into the water from 5-7 meters. The water is cool and clean, and there are many fish. The cenote is kept tidy and nature around looks great, improving the experience. Highly recommended.

Nice place to hang out for the day, wasn't what I expected as I saw many over enhanced photos, a bit overcrowded and not preserved well at all. Go early to avoid loads of tourists. You can catch a collectivo from Yulum or from Playa del Carmen easily and walk down the dirt road to get there. Cost is 100... More

We drove In, but could also ride a bus however it is a long walk in. We went here so my son could cliff jump. We all did it and it was fun. You could come for the day and lounge while swimming in this beautiful cenote. The water is crystal clear with fish and mossy rocks. Bring a picnic... More

This Cenote was just a few hundred feet South of our first Cenote at Cristilano.  The entry gate is several hundred  feet off the highway.   Entry to the Jardin del Eden Cenote is paid at a small booth on the right hand side of the dirt road. After payment, a remote gate is opened.  The entry is $200MXN.  The... More

When I visited this cenote "El Jardin del Eden" I really thought I was in paradise. Clear waters, peaceful environment. We dove into its water time and time again; my family, my friends and I could not get enough of it. You have check this place out when you visit Playa/Tulum! 'Allimite" coordinated the excursion and transportation for all us,... More
