Our Resort near Popular Cenotes in Tulum

Dive right in to the natural swimming holes near our resort

The cooling waters of Tulum’s local cenotes are a dream escape from Tulum’s jungle heat. These magical natural pools were spiritually revered by the Mayans and are now top attractions for travelers (the Yucatan Peninsula has the largest number of cenotes in the world). Whether you’re in the mood for snorkeling, diving, swimming or just lounging by the water and taking in the gorgeous vista in front of you, there’s a cenote to match your preferences. And if you simply can’t decide, check out a cenote tour and visit a few.


Named for the skull-like figure formed at the bottom of the rocky roof, this semi-open cenote is for more adventurous spirits. Favored by diving enthusiasts, it’s home to various species of fish as well as stalactites and stalagmites. Life jackets and snorkeling equipment are available to rent.

Open: Daily, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Price: $300 MXN
Distance from hotel: 3.5 km, 12 min by bike, 8 min by car
