Gran Cenote, Tulum

4.3
#2 of 23 in Nature in Tulum
Swim and snorkel in the crisp cold waters of Gran Cenote, a flooded cavern with a jetty, affording easy access to a wonderful subterranean pool. Scuba diving excursions are available, but you’ll be able to see a lot from the surface with your goggles, including strange rock formations and terrapins heading to the surface. The beautiful surroundings make a great place to have a picnic before returning to the pool. Keep your eyes peeled for the iguanas and peacocks that roam the surrounding area. Put Gran Cenote and other Tulum attractions into our Tulum trip builder app , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Amazing place, highly recommended. Pristine clean, showers, parking. They make shower prior to entering and not wear any sunscreen or lotion - you are swimming with fish and turtles in pristine water. Bring snorkel and mask.
  • Beautiful & cheap (us$10 or $180 Mexican pesos).. good facilities (bathroom, showers, sunbathing area). We went at 11am and it wasn't THAT full of people, it was bearable.
