The Basics

Just outside of Tulum, the Grand Cenote is among the most accessible of the many cenotes on the Yucatan Peninsula. You can visit from Tulum on your own or as part of a sightseeing, snorkeling, or scuba diving tour. Alternatively, make the trip from Playa Del Carmen on a tour that also includes Maya ruins and picturesque Caribbean beaches. Consider booking a cenote-hopping tour that hits other top cenotes in the area.

Cenote Triple Adventure Tour in Tulum
Everything was great! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and super fun and passionate. The only thing I wish was different was to go to a different cenote in place of the last one we went to on the tour. It looked like a lagoon and I wish we went to another more unique cenote instead. That being said, I would still definitely recommend doing this tour!
We had such a great time...

My husband and absolutely loved this tour! The brunch spot was tucked off a remote road on an adorable little farm with organic vegetarian snacks. The cenotes were all beautiful and our tour guide Maca was so knowledgeable and accommodating! I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a decent level of fitness and likes adventure!

Swim with turtles + Snorkel + Tulum archaeological zone + Cenote
Mario was great! We had a private tour with 5 adults and 4 kids (10, 10, 9 & 7). We swam first and saw turtles, lots of fish, a stingray and a sand shark. Snorkels are not provided bc of covid of course. Then we went to Tulum where Mario was very informative. Then he took us to an authentic Mexican restaurant which was delicious! And finally swam in the Gran Cenote which was amazing and relaxing! We went into the caves and saw lots of turtles, fish and bats. It was a great 3 in 1 adventure!

Cenote Triple Adventure Tour in Tulum
This was an amazing tour & the highlight of my bachelorette weekend! Our guide, Summer, was awesome! She took us to the perfect combination of Cenotes - you really get to experience it all. The first one was diving in caves, the second included cliff jumping and the last was a mangrove cenote with tons of wildlife. All had crystal clear blue water. Summer got in the water with us and showed us all her favorite local secrets. 1000% recommend!
