Cenote Yokdzonot is a treasure- visually beautiful, very well organized and managed, clean, and with the added bonus of an on-site outdoor restaurant serving delicious meals and frosty drinks. The women who conceived of and developed this project should be proud of a job well-done!

The pictures here don't do the beauty of this cenote justice. The sun was shining, the temperature of the water was perfect, and as I was floating in the water, I couldn't help but think that I was dreaming. Bring goggles and you'll be able...More

Located in a small pueblo - 15 km or so from Piste. Quiet and without crowds. No tour buses. Refreshing swim.
