Just a few blocks from the square, this very large cenote offers respite from the heat of the Yucatan. The day we visited, many people were swimming. There's a small entry fee to get in. The cenote also offers a restaurant and there are souvenir vendors all around.

Cenote Zaci is a great way to cool down after a hot day in the jungle. The food is great and it's well worth buying a beer to get free admission. The cliff jumping is super fun and, quick bonus, If you hang around in the shallows you can get a free pedicure from the fish!

The location of this cenote is really convenient as it's right in the centre of Valladolid. It was 30 pesos to enter and 20 pesos to rent a locker. If I'm honest this cenote wasn't really that impressive. It was pretty big but it felt quite built up, like the sides were man made and there were loads of steps... More

If you're in Valladolid then definitely pay the 30 pesos to go swim in this cenote, so worth it. You can jump in without any problem but go in the morning as there are tourist buses that start showing up around 2-3 pm and it gets crowded apparently.

This is a stunning open cave/cenote right near the market. It's interesting and beautiful. A great place to cool off. Entrance fee is a couple of dollars and good for the whole day. We went twice.

We were lucky to stay in an apartment close to this beautiful cenote. Actually, it's more like the public pool of Valladolid --- lots of locals hanging around, enjoying the cool air and water. Especially in the morning or late afternoon when it's not that busy it's always worth a visit for a quick swim.... Or a huge jump, if... More

We visited Cenote Zaci after seeing Casa de los Venados in Valladolid. Just a few blocks from the town center, this is a lovely, open cenote with stone steps leading down to the water from ground level. We did not swim, but enjoyed watching families leap from the surrounding walls and swim in the crystal blue water. A palapa restaurant... More

This was our families first Cenote. We went to 2 others during our stay and this one was great for jumping. The cost is about $2 per person. We had one of the locals explain a lot about how Cenotes are made and spent about 10 minutes with us. We ended up give him an extra $5 and it was... More

Visited this cenote last week and as it was my first didn't know what to expect. It certainly was a beautiful spot to cool off and only a short walk from town. As I am not a strong swimmer there was no way I was leaping off a 10 metre ledge! On the way down I watched some locals entering... More

Very nice cenote, easily accessed by walking as it's near the centre of town. Good cool water for a refreshing swim and great photos of the cave and stalagtites.
