Every single cenote is different from others. All of them are unique and worth to be discovered. Yes, it can be a bit expensive and yes, the local people can be a bit pushy to get "something" from you but: first of all they are...More

Saluma and Xkeken Cenotes are in the same property. It’s impossible to say that these underground creations of nature are not impressive. On the other hand the human creation above ground are a turn-off. After you pay the entrance fee -expensive for Mexico- they take...More

A cenote is a sunken cave the Mayans believed were the entrance to the underworld. The cenote was interesting to see. The water is from fresh sources and is very refreshing. If you book a tour of Chichen Itza this will most likely be included.

Cenotes are definitely one of the best things about visiting Mexico and this particular one is certainly worth a visit. The water is clear and refreshing whilst the facilities are good to make it worth the money. A must do in Mexico.

Price for both was 125 pesos. No guide or someone buying skip the line tickets is needed. Take care that you arrive early in the morning to have the best experience.
