    We took adavantage of the restaurant while the cenote was closed. There is significant construction going on around it to provide more tourist experience and entertainment, Supposed to be complete by April/May 2022. We had a wonderful guacamole and the famous Valladolid Lomitos (grilled pork pieces in a tomato sauce). Both were tasty and we would reorder again. Service was pleasant. Cost was about 350pesos including several beer. It will get busy once construction is complete. By buying food or drink you can avoid the fee for using the cenote.

    Through the years we have been lucky to have unique experiences on our travels to Mexico, and Casa de los Venados will be one of our most cherished. Touring the personal collection of Mexican artwork accumulated through decades by a husband and wife, proved to be a highlight of our 2-week vacation in the Yucatan. The culture expressed through various Mexican artists was beautiful, diverse, intricate, and even a bit of bizarre! David was delightful and passionate about the artwork, knowledgeable about every piece, explaining the regions’ customs and folklore. Thank you for sharing your love of the Mexican culture and contributing to the growth and success of the Valladolid community.

    We came here on a Monday morning between 930-1030am just to take the photo! The light beam was not directly on the platform at this time, but it was about 10 ft from it. There was not a long line to take the picture at this time other then that there was a group of about 10 people just prior to us taking a variety of poses. The people who work there were good about clearing people off the platform that were just there to swim as there are other access points to the water. Cost to get in on Monday morning was 200 pesos per person (USD exchange rate was 16 (bank exchange was 20.53 at the time)), which is pricier than we were expecting. If you're visiting a lot of cenotes that only take pesos or may have a credit card machine that is 'down' make sure you bring enough!

    Magical Cenote. Underground, rays of sunshine and light, stalagmites, and refreshing natural water - what more than you need! AND 80 MXN for Xkeken / Dzitnup. WOW!

    Went on a Wednesday afternooon around 2pm and maybe 30-40 people were there. Amazing way to spend the day with a friend of mine when she came in town!!

    We visited Cenotes Dzitnup, actually two Cenotes. You pay slightly more to visit both, they each have a different feel. It is a good plan to arrive early, there were very few tourists when we were there. First you have to run the gauntlet of tour guide wanna bees, although the young man who wanted to help us was very informative. But you don’t need a guide There are also gauntlets of vendors and the grounds of the two Cenotes are somewhat in need of care. There are a number of abandoned structures, perhaps once cabins - it looks like the heyday was some time ago. A bit of a ghost town feel.

    Cenote Xkeken is a quiet cave, tranquil and clear. Interesting formations on the ceilings, like eggs. Some idiot had been smoking (who smokes in a cave?) which was unfortunate but not fatal.

    Cenote Samula is on the other side of the site, it has a jumping platform and is therefore a less tranquil spot. Also very clean and clear, uncrowded.

    Zazil Tunich is the most beautiful cenote I've ever visited! Our guide was Raul, who was entertaining, informative, and spoke perfect English. It was a rainy day, and he provided us with umbrellas for the part tour above ground. Since Zazil Tunich is a closed cenote, it's perfect to visit regardless of weather. Highly recommend.

    This was awesome. Really unique, a fun adventure.

    One question we had... the rappelling and the zip line with a 6 year old... it was perfect. She had a blast and we got some incredible photos of her rappelling down the 100' into the cave, and then zip lining and dropping the ~20-30' into the water.

    It was a few hours really well spent. The food was excellent (and there was plenty).

    The evening show is worth the money you spend (it's free.) I suppose it's a good thing to do between dining and a bar. It is very pleasant to sit outside. At the end, there are dancers and drummers looking for tips from the crowd. The museum tour is not that exciting but it's nice to explore the grounds and the rooms. It wasn't that expensive and is a good way to fill your time.

    Arrived around 11. Entrance fee was 170mx. Clean changing rooms and lockers available. Short walk and decent into the underworld. Spent about 2hr here with nobody else around. Disconcertingly deep! Very fun cave cenote withbirds and bats and lots of neat stalactites. As a bonus the acoustics are amazing. Since we were alone, I got to listen to my girls sing harmony instead of a bunch of tourists screaming. A sublime experience.

    I love bees so I had to come here. Being able to see so many different kinds of bees living freely and being able to taste their products is an amazing experience. Recommended for anyone into Mayan culture and bees!

    A relaxing place to sit with a coffee in the morning or enjoy the evening after dinner. A lovely view of the fountain and church. Lots of life and a few vendors at night. How could you not like this place?

    We did love this cenote (although coming directly from Ik Kil, it's not as magical). The swimming area is large and with less people feels more relaxing than other popular cenotes. There is a jumping platform and plenty of space to ease your way in and not feel rushed. The facilities are really nice and they have a restaurant, but we didn't eat there. The nice thing was that they took credit cards (at least when we went for the cenote fee). This cenote was 150 pesos per person on a Monday around 1pm.

    Full of shops on a beautiful old cobblestone street! A bit pricy with a few very expensive boutique hotels but well worth the visit for it's old world charm and heritage! Dates back 300+ years!

    One of the more unique cenotes. Island in the middle. Beautiful place. Large enough for several groups of people.
