  • Just 300m from the Barcelo Hotel, a public cenote at a very affordable price about three euros per person. It is possible to bathe in several pools water temperature about 22 degrees with a small passage under the rock. We were there on a Sunday There were plenty of locals picnicing peaceful atmosphere. Propice for making small jumps about 4 m high and for fishing spa. Very accessible on foot.

  • 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.
