  • This was by far one of our most memorable moments of our Mexico trip. The water was absolutely gorgeous and jumping off the ledge was so much fun! The staff was friendly and helpful. There was so much to see underwater and our family sat near the edge with our feet in the water and let the fish nibble at our toes. So much fun! If we came back to Mexico, this would be a guaranteed return stop!
  • Easy access. Water is clear and lifevest is included with your entrance fee. Lifeguard is visible. Can't go wrong with any cenotes.
