  • Had a amazing time in the cenotes! Great experience and the information was fascinating. Our guide Bany was amazing! We would definitely recommend going too this cenote and experience it yourself.

  • We had a really wonderful time! We definitely recommend wearing a wetsuit (they are optional but we were all shivering a bit by the end of 90 min!). The cave is so beautiful, the guides are all friendly and speak multiple languages. We had 6 people total in our party so some areas were a tight fit but we made it work. I think for the amount you are able to see and the experience of swimming inside the cave it is totally worth it! The group that runs this also takes good care of the land, and clearly has pride in it. The grounds are kept up nicely with lots of orchids planted, and they have respect for the local birds- ask to see the Mayan 'Toe' bird nest in the wall of the cave!
  • Amazing place, we loved the tour, it was fun and the cenote is the most beautiful one Ive seen so far. Definitely worth visiting. You need to take guided tour but it is worth the money, they will also provide you wetsuit and snorkeling mask. Tour is done in small groups so the waiting time is not long
