One of the most beautiful aspects of Tulum is the underwater cave system made up of cenotes. There is nothing else like them in the world! Some are great for scuba diving, others for cliff jumping, but here is our list of our favorite family cenotes for snorkeling.
Casa Cenote is the last outlet of the river system made up by the cenotes. You can stand in one spot and see the Caribbean Sea on one side and the fresh water cenote. Here you will find adolescent tarpon, crabs, and if you’re brave enough a baby caiman.
Dos Ojos Cenote: This cenote has it all! An amazing place to rest in the hammock, and multiple entrances to the half covered cenote so you never feel too crowded. The half open effect allows for light to pour in and gives you a beautiful underwater view.
Gran Cenote: Another beautiful half covered Cenote where you’ll find small turtles! There is a small second cenote all the way at the back where the water is shallow and you can take amazing pictures.
