Have you ever heard of cenotes? These bodies of water, which look like something out of a science fiction movie, are some of the most impressive natural wonders in the world. Beautiful flooded caves of freshwater have formed due to the dissolution of limestone and were considered sacred in Mayan culture.

On this occasion, we will show you some of some of the best cenotes in Tulum:

Cenote Dos Ojos: Considered one of the largest and most beautiful in Tulum, its name comes from the two holes that look like eyes and connect two bodies of crystal-clear water. 

Gran Cenote: Perfect for snorkeling and swimming in a natural environment; the cenote consists of a large cave, a cavern, and open areas. To facilitate the visit and enjoy the place, there are wooden platforms to walk on and appreciate nature.

Cenote Calavera: Also known as the “Temple of Doom,” this cenote is one of the most adventurous in Tulum. It is called this because it has an entrance shaped like a human skull. 

If after spending an afternoon enjoying the natural beauty of the cenotes, you are looking for an unforgettable gastronomic experience, BAK’, the best restaurant in Tulum, is the place to delight in exotic dishes, unique mixology, and our iconic fire show “Cha’an Ka’ak.”
