The best cenotes in Tulum

If you’re planning on travelling to Tulum then you simply HAVE to check out some of the best cenotes in Tulum and the prettiest cenotes near Tulum too.

I have a whole post about some of the best cenotes in Mexico and Tulum is surrounded by these beautiful pools of water in every which direction.

On our recent trip to Tulum, we visited a couple of cenotes by bike in Tulum and had a great morning splashing about, looking for turtles and cooling off from the Mexican sunshine.

A trip to Tulum involves a lot of lazing about by the beaches near Tulum, so half a day spent exploring the beautiful cenotes of Tulum is a nice way to add some adventure and a cenote swim is the perfect way to refresh in the Mexican heat!

So, if you’re staying in Tulum then be sure to add some of these cenotes to your list of things to do around Tulum.

Have you got travel insurance? I’ve been using SafetyWing for a while and it’s incredibly easy, affordable and overall hassle-free! Make sure you check them out before your trip (or after, you can subscribe even if the trip has already started!). They offer subscription-based travel insurance which is great for digital nomads. It allows you to claim medical expenses, and you can add travel coverage to cover your for lost or stolen belongings or additional expenses due to delayed travel.

What is a cenote?

First things first, “what are cenotes in Mexico?” Cenotes (pronounced “se-no-tays”) are natural swimming holes or swimming caves in Mexico.

They’re formed by the collapse of porous limestone bedrock. When this rock falls it reveals a secret subterranean world of groundwater pools which are perfect for swimming, snorkelling and, in some cases, doing some diving!

Most cave cenotes have fresh water that has been filtered by the earth. This makes the water super clear and pure.

So clear in fact that you can often see straight through to small fish darting about in the plants. Some of the fish will even come over and have a nibble at you – but don’t worry, they’re tiny and don’t pose a threat.

What’s special about cenotes?

The Ancient Mayans, those who built the ruins near Tulu, worshipped cenotes because they were a water source in dry times; the name cenote means ‘sacred well’.

They settled villages around cenotes and believed that they were a portal to speak with the gods.

Many cenotes are still closed to the public due to being viewed as sacred. When you visit a cenote today it’s easy to see why they held the Mayans in awe.

Swimming in the pristine waters feels like stepping back in time thanks to the giant tropical trees and vines and the almost-eery sunbeams.

Different types of cenotes

While you may hear people refer to cenotes as Mexican sinkholes this isn’t entirely true. Sure there are a lot of cave cenotes, but there are those which are more similar to lakes too. Here are the different types of cenotes you’ll come across.

  • Open Cenotes: Open cenotes are natural open pools that are more like lakes. There aren’t any caves at these cenotes and they vary greatly in depth. Some of these are connected to an underground river passage too.
  • Semi-open Cenotes: The semi-open cenotes have some parts that are open to the air and elements and parts that are hidden in a cave.
  • Underground Cenotes: This is the hardest type of cenotes to visit as they can only be accessed by experienced cave divers. These hidden underground caves in Mexico are fantastic if you’ve got the skills to find them!
  • Cave Cenotes: Cave cenotes can usually be accessed by a staircase. They open up to an underground pool with shallower and deeper areas. This type of cenotes is the most mysterious one, and are some of the most impressive cenotes in Mexico. They’re great for doing some Tulum diving if you’re an experienced diver. In fact, they’re some of the best diving in Tulum!

How many cenotes are there in Mexico?

No one knows exactly how many cenotes in Mexico there are but it’s believed there are over 6,000 in different cenotes in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico alone!

Are cenotes warm?

Whilst not exactly warm, the water in cenotes is not that cold either. Honestly, the weather in Mexico tends to be so hot that swimming in a cenote around Tulum is going to be a welcome opportunity to cool off and freshen up.

Why visit the cenotes near Tulum?

Tulum is home to the largest underwater cave system in the world: the Sac Actun System which means “white cave system”.

The Tulum underwater caves system runs for a huge 347km and the cenotes in the Sac Actun System are decorated with stalactites, clear waters, and some even have ancient animal fossils.

Another reason to visit the cenotes is that Tulum often suffers from really bad, stinky seaweed on its beaches.

While it was virtually non-existent during our visit to Tulum in October, sometimes the sargassum in Tulum means you won’t want to sit by the beach.

In that case, the cenotes offer the perfect alternative! Visiting the cenotes was one of my favourite Tulum activities during our trip.

If you need any more convincing, the best snorkeling in Tulum is often found in cenotes so if you’re looking to go snorkeling near Tulum then check out the cenotes below.

How to get to the best cenotes around Tulum, Mexico

If you’re wondering how to get to the cenotes in Tulum then I’ve listed the options below.

We didn’t rent a car for our visit to Tulum, but we did rent bikes from iBike Tulum and cycled to some of the closest cenotes to Tulum.

The best option is to hire a car or a driver for the day as this gives you the greatest amount of flexibility. For more details see below.

I use comparison sites like DiscoverCars and RentalCars to book my car rentals as it’s easy to check prices and compare the best deals!

Hire a colectivo to the Cenotes

Colectivos are pretty much small buses. They’re one of the most cost-efficient and best ways to get around the Riviera Maya and the Yucatan Peninsula.

To get a colectivo, stand on the side of the road and wave at any minivan coming your way. Some will stop, some won’t but you usually don’t have to wait for more than 10 minutes.

Once you get in, tell the driver your destination and pay when you get off. It’s always pretty cheap but since there’s some talking involved it’s best if you know a little bit of Spanish (at least your numbers!).

Book a driver for the day

If you’re looking to visit several cenotes in Tulum, Mexico in one day then hiring a driver in Tulum is a great option.

This does tend to be more expensive so if you’re visiting Tulum on a budget then this won’t be for you.

However, it does make it easy to visit lots of cenotes without the need to hire a car.

Ask at your hotel for recommendations, a driver for a day is likely to cost you around $100. If you can split this with a few other people it definitely helps!

Rent a bicycle in Tulum

This is the option we took. Since we’d hired a bicycle for the duration of our stay in Tulum it made the most sense for us to use it to cycle to the nearest cenotes to Tulum.

We hired a bike from iBike Tulum which cost $150MXN a day plus a $500MXN refundable deposit. It came with locks and a basket and saved us a lot of money on a driver or renting a car.

Most of the bikes to rent in Tulum have a basket too so if you’re planning to do some cenote snorkelling in Tulum there’s somewhere to carry them while you cycle.

Rent a car

Renting a car is the easiest way to get around the cenotes near Tulum and gives you the most flexibility and there are several car rental companies in downtown Tulum.

Whilst renting a car looks very cheap when browsing car rental websites, bear in mind you have to buy the extra insurance which will massively increase your price.

I recommend visiting the car hire companies in person once in Tulum as that way you can be sure exactly what you need to pay for, and have more chance of wangling a discount than you do online.

I use comparison sites like DiscoverCars and RentalCars to book my car rentals as it’s easy to check prices and compare the best deals!


In order to keep the water of these natural pools in Mexico clean, you should shower before getting in the water and refrain from using sun lotion and bug spray.

There are a lot of bugs around but they won’t bother you too much once you’re swimming and the spray will ruin the water and plants in the cenotes and can poison fish and other marine life.

Many cenotes will have a sign about this and provide showers. It might seem like a pain but it’s important to help preserve these Mexico natural pools.

You can wear marine-friendly suncream to protect your skin from the sun.

Best cenotes in Tulum

Below are some of the top cenotes in Tulum (and the best cenotes in Yucatan) for diving, snorkelling and swimming! Check out my ‘what to pack’ guide at the end of the post so you get the most out of your day.

Tulum cenotes map

This cenote map of the cenotes in Tulum shows you where all the cenotes listed below are. As you can see, some of them are pretty close to each other which means you can visit several of these Yucatan cenotes in a day. It also makes it easier to see which are the cenotes close to Tulum.

You can add this to your Google maps so that you can find these Yucatan Peninsula cenotes while you’re out and about.

Tulum cenote tours

If you’re looking to visit several cenotes during the course of one day but don’t want to hire a car, check out these Tulum tours and Tulum excursions. These are also some of the best Tulum tours.

Cenote Calavera

This was the first cenote we visited right after opening and there were a couple of people there already but we all took turns in getting photos. It was definitely getting busier as we left.

The name “Calavera” means skull in Spanish and you’ll see why! There is one bigger hole and two smaller holes which look like they’re the eyes and mouth of a skull! You can jump into the waters from all three holes but be careful with the two smaller holes – there’s not a whole lot of room for error!

There’s also a ladder which you can climb down to get into the water too and there’s a little rope that can be used to sit on when you need a break.

You’ll find a lot of bats in here and plenty of small fish which swim right up to you for a nibble! Take your time to swim around and enjoy the refreshing waters of this great cenote and the light streaming in from the two ‘eyes’ of the skull!

Visiting Cenote Calavera

  • How to get to Cenote Calavera from Tulum: 3km north of Tulum along highway 109. Very easy to cycle to (that’s what we did!).
  • Opening hours: 9 am – 4 pm, daily
  • Cenote Calavera price: 250 pesos
  • Best for: Swimmers

Gran Cenote

Gran Cenote is one of the most popular cenotes in Tulum due to both its proximity to the town of Tulum and the colour of the water.

It was Thom’s favourite of the ones we visited in part because at Grand Cenote near Tulum you get the full cenote experience as there are cenote caves with stalactites, fish, turtles and areas which open up. It was one of my favourite moments swimming in Tulum.

As one of the most popular cenotes near Tulum, there are plenty of facilities including nice washrooms, lockers, showers, snorkelling gear for hire, and picnic benches if you plan on spending the day here.

This cenote can get very, very busy so it’s best to visit in the morning of right before closing time. However, if you’re visiting Tulum in low season (e.g. in October like we did) it still shouldn’t be crazy busy. We visited between 10-11.30am and didn’t need to queue and could still find quieter areas to swim in.

Visiting Gran Cenote

Cenote Zacil-Ha

A short drive from Tulum is Cenote Zacil-Ha and CarWash Cenote. It looks rather like a manmade outdoor swimming pool and whilst it’s not one of the largest cenotes, it has plenty to keep you entertained for a few hours making it one of the top Tulum attractions.

If you’re looking for a thrill, there’s even a zip line that runs a few metres above the water!

Cenote Zacil-Ha is part of the Tulum caves system which connects it to many of the other cenotes in the area.

Cenote Carwash

Cenote Carwash is officially known as Aktun Ha Cenote but it’s locally referred to as Cenote Carwash as it used to be used to clean the taxis!

It’s a great spot for swimming and relaxing in amongst the lily pads and turtles and, if you have your own snorkelling gear, then you can take a closer look at the underwater “garden” at the bottom of the cenote. There’s also a small (apparently totally harmless) crocodile living in Cenote Carwash – see if you spot him!

You can also go scuba diving here, but it needs to be organised in advance. By scuba diving, in Cenote Carwash you can find stalactites and giant fallen trees in this cave cenote neat Tulum.

Cenote Cristal

Cenote Cristal, Tulum is a beautiful cenote that looks like a lake since it’s a lot more open than some of the others on this cenote list. It gets its name from the crystal clear waters and you’ll be able to see lots of fish swimming about with you.

There is a tall wooden platform for jumping from and it’s right next to Cenote Escondido which is worth a visit too.

Visit Cenote Cristal

Cenote Angelita

Cenote Angelita, also known as “Little Angel”, is located south of Tulum and is a deep cenote that makes it perfect for diving.

If you’re looking for diving cenotes in Tulum you’ll love Cenote Angelita as it reaches depths of 60m and, due to the halocline creating optical illusions, it resembles an underground river. You can see this occur at 30m below the water’s surface.

In amongst the gas layer creating by the halocline are giant dead trees and you can swing among the branches. Choose to swim above or below the gas – but know that below the gas it’s super dark!

Casa Cenote or Cenote Manati

Casa Cenote, also called Cenote Manati (as it used to have manatee living in it!), is an open cenote and, as a result, is super family-friendly and perfect for kayaking and paddleboarding making it one of the best cenotes in Mexico.

It’s well known for its crystal clear water and the opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving. Nowadays it’s pretty busy, especially since it’s very close to the Tulum ruins meaning lots of people spend a morning there and then cool off at the cenote afterwards. That doesn’t mean it’s not one of the best cenotes for snorkeling in Tulum though.

This cenote differs from some in that it has both freshwater and saltwater and so you’ll find both fresh and saltwater fish living here too. If you’re brought snorkelling gear with you to Casa Cenote then swim over by the mangrove roots for some super interesting fish sightings!

If you’re a scuba diver then this is one of the best cenotes near Tulum for diving. It’s unique because of the combination of both fresh and saltwater and, by diving, you can even spot the halocline that happens when the two waters mix.

Visit Casa Cenote, Tulum

  • How to get to Casa Cenote from Tulum: Casa Cenote is 11km away from Tulum. It’s on the 307 highway northbound towards Playa del Carmen. Take a right towards Tankah Bay to find it.

Casa Tortuga

Casa Tortuga is quite a new cenote near Tulum but it’s sure to start getting busy soon.

Visiting Casa Tortuga is interesting as it’s like a cenote tour of three cenotes within a park. You’ll be led around by a tour guide who takes you to two cave cenotes and one open cenote.

In the cave cenotes, there are bats, blind cavefish and interesting rock formations and the open cenote is the perfect opportunity for swimming and jumping into.  There’s also the resident turtle too!

Visiting this is done as part of a tour and while it offers a great introduction to any questions you have surrounding “what are cenotes?”, it’s not the best one to visit if you just want to swim and jump around. The tour guides provide snorkel gear, life jackets and the guide.

Visiting Casa Tortuga

  • How to get to Casa Tortuga from Tulum: Casa Tortuga is 17km from Tulum. It’s on the 307 highway northbound and will be on the left-hand side.

Cenote El Pit

The El Pit Cenote is also popular for diving and this is the cenote for Tulum cave diving! The cenote was given its name as it’s the deepest cenote in the Yucatan Penninsula at 119m deep!

Yet, the visibility here is seriously impressive and you can see pretty deep even from the surface.

Cenote El Pit has a narrow and steep opening but then turns into a huge cave. Some of the cave can only be reached by very experienced divers.

However, as the top part is open water, you can diver here with a PADI Open Water certification or equivalent.

Swimmers and snorkellers have recently been banned from jumping into El Pit, so it’s scuba divers only for the time being who get to explore these caves in Tulum.

Visiting Cenote El Pit

  • How to get to El Pit from Tulum: 25km north of Tulum on 307 Highway.
  • Opening hours: 8 am – 5 pm, daily

  • Best for: Experienced divers.

Cenote Sac Actun

Also known as The Pet Cemetery Cenote, Sac Actun is one of the most beautiful cenotes in Mexico. The rather spooky sounding name comes from the many animal bones that were found here and they’re believed to have been part of the Ancient Mayans rituals.

It’s one of the more expensive cenotes to visit and you have to visit with a guide.

Visiting Cenote Sac Actun

  • How to get to Sac Actun from Tulum: 25km from Tulum, just further along the road from Dos Ojos.

  • Best for: Divers and snorkellers

Cenote Dos Ojos

Meaning “two eyes”, you’ll see why as soon as you see it!, Cenote Dos Ojos is one of the more popular cenotes near Tulum.

When you first see Two Eyes Cenote, it’ll appear to be two separate sinkholes but it’s actually one single cenote with the two sinkholes connected by a 400m long passage.

You can’t enter the passage unless you’re a scuba diver, but it’s fun to snorkel in each of the sinkholes and see the fish darting about.

Lots of light comes through the ‘eyes’ which turns the water a beautiful turquoise colour which is one of the reasons it gets super busy.

You’ll find this gem in Chemuyil village, which is between Tulum and Akumal.

As with many of the cenotes near Tulum, this one is known for its cave system which is the 4th largest in the Riviera Maya.

And, if you stick around you might also find some of the resident iguanas living in the surrounding buses.

Near to Cenote Azul and Cenote Cristalino, Cenote Jardin del Eden, also called Cenote Ponderosa, is a large open cenote which has cristal waters and lush surroundings. It’s easy to see why it’s called the Garden of Eden cenote!

There’s one side of the cenote that’s higher up and perfect for diving from and there’s also a separate section of the water that’s like a narrow tunnel.

Once you’re nearing the bottom of the steps you’ll see the cool waters and two platforms that stem off the stairs which are great for jumping into the cenote from.

At the bottom, there’s a large platform you can relax on, and a few benches too.

What to pack for a cenote tour near Tulum

Before you visit the cenotes near Tulum, be sure to pack the following essentials. This covers pretty much everything you need to explore the water holes in Mexico.

  • Cash: Pretty much every cenote will only accept cash so take plenty!
  • ID: If you want to put your valuables in a locker (recommended where possible) you’ll need to show ID, so bring your passport or driver’s license.
  • Swimwear, of course!
  • Reef safe suncream: protect the clear water and animals!
  • Bug spray: but remember to always shower it off before entering the water.
  • Sandals or flipflops for when you’re not in the water or water shoes.
  • Water bottle (my faves!)
  • Camera: ideally one that’s waterproof like a GoPro.
  • A towel: travel towels are great since they take us hardly any space and dry quickly.
  • Snorkelling gear – if you plan to do some cenote snorkeling, although this can be hired at a lot of cenotes in Mexico nowadays.

Where to stay in Tulum

There are so many choices when it comes to Tulum accommodation and, when booking a hotel for our stay, I found it really difficult to decide. In the end, our hotel, Aluna Hotel, was great!

It was situated in between the town and the beaches in a quiet area which is currently under development.

And one big bonus is that we could use the beach club of its sister hotel too. I think it’s usually more expensive to stay here, but since we visited in low season (October) the rates were reasonable.

Here are a few of the other places I would’ve chosen too, all of which are reasonably priced, unlike some!

Hotels in Tulum town centre

  • Tulum Rocks: This hostel has 4-bed rooms as a dormitory or private and includes a buffet breakfast. It’s in the perfect location for Tulum’s cheaper bars and restaurants.
  • Secret Garden Tulum hotel: You’ll really feel like you’re in a secret garden at this hotel. There’s a beautiful outdoor area with tropical plants and each room is decorated with handmade ornaments.
  • Prana Boutique Hotel: This hotel in Tulum is pet-friendly and has a sun terrace and an on-site bar. There’s free parking available as well as bikes for guest use. Some rooms also have a patio or terrace.
  • Xscape Tulum: Xscape Tulum has an outdoor pool and is in a great location for exploring the town of Tulum.

Tulum beach hotels

  • Diamante K: Diamante K has a restaurant, private beach area (which is beautiful!), and can offer support booking tours. It’s on the beach area, but slightly off the main drag which means it’s more peaceful and, I think, a lot more picturesque.
  • Coco Tulum: This beach hotel in Tulum has a spa, private beach and a Mexican-Italian fusion restaurant onsite. Every room has a view of the sea or jungle too.
  • Hotels & Cabanas Zacil Kin Tulum: 500m from the Tulum Ruins, this hotel has its own private beach area on Playa Pescadores (which is gorgeous) and has an onsite restaurant and bar.
