  • Always fresh and welcoming with the heavy sun of August. There are people as everywhere in this very touristy part of Mexico. In the morning or evening are preferred. Lots of fish and a few water spins away.

  • In search of nice tours to make without a guide, one of the accompanying O2 Mexico advised me the Casa Cenote. She told me about Poncho, a crocodile that took up residence there, which tempted me a lot! It's a fake? Is he a vegan? I'm very tempted but not want to serve as a snack to Mr Croco!! No seriously, I'm the only one who's afraid to go for a swim in a place where there's a crocodile??? Bathing or perishing burned, that's the motto under the Mexican sun! In the end we did it and I'm still whole! On the other hand, when we came face to face with him, I can say that we did not do the smarts, I was super afraid especially that he stubbornly followed us until the beginning of the cenote. The path seemed endless with a croc at the back especially as it went from time to time underwater. It's still super fast a croc when it's hungry and I was afraid that my cooks would put it in appetite! After, I would have told him that I never bought anything in croc skin to soften it but I mastered the Spanish croc quite poorly .... Results: an experience not to be missed and the cenote is very beautiful.

  • Pretty cool spot, and the guides are friendly. Don't expect to spend more than an hour here unless you really love swimming around. There isn't abundant wildlife, but the caves are pretty neat. If it is an easy trip for you and you can get there early I would recommend this cenote. If not, you might be better off going to the beach or a less popular cenote.
  • Was great. Really cool to actually see the opening of the Cenote to the ocean. Also cool to have a little lazy river type area to swim snorkel scuba and or kayak around.
