Gran Cenote

max depth 10m/36ft

The name speaks for itself.  Probably one of the most spectacular cenotes, partially because of its long geological history. For a long period of time Gran Cenote was a dry cave and numerous formations could form like huge stalagmites, stalactites and columns.

The crystal-clear water has a depth of around thirty feet and the accessible caverns (which are a little deeper) are home to small fish and some fascinating formations. The cenote is surrounded by jungle and gardens, and there are small sandy beach areas for those who prefer to stay dry.

It is also a part of the second largest cave system called Sac Actun.

In order to dive here you need to be cavern/cave certified.
