The pool of striking blue water at Cenote Samula lies deep beneath the ground, in a cave surrounded by high stone walls. Sunrays falling in from the top opening illuminate the cave and its waters, where you can escape the heat with a peaceful swim. Visit with a guided tour or come on your own (get here by bike or taxi). The admission price includes both cenotes found at the site. As the floor of the cave can be a bit slippery, wear proper footwear. No need for snorkeling equipment, though. Using our international travel planner, Valladolid attractions like Cenote Samula can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Cenote Samula Reviews
Went here on a rainy day- great activity for that!:) Fine cenote- one end not that deep and the other it was quite deep. We brought our bags to the cenote and found a place for them, but there ain't..... more »
The cenote is very beatifull, easy to access and quite attractive to take a swim. You can rest vests if oyu want. Water is very cold. more »
This is a fantastic cenote, I believe on on the top 5 from all Yucatan area. Unfortunately after 15:00 it gets dark, so try to target your visit to be at noon inside to see it as its best.
Nice under ground cenote which is not so crowed
