Create an itinerary including Gran Cenote
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.

  • Really gorgeous and well maintained cenote. They recently raised the price to 500 pesos ($25) but the property is very well taken care of. Get there at 8 so you're first in line when the doors open at 8:10. The water is pleasant and crystal clear. Swim with turtles, birds and bats in the caves.
  • 500 pesos including snorkel gear. 30 pesos for locker. Able to see lots of turtles and bats in the caves which was incredible. Light filtering through the trees and on the rocks was really cool to look at. We got there at 8:10am when it opened and had the place to ourselves for maybe 15 minutes. Didn’t get crowded on our Friday morning 😊
