The Cristalino cenote is one of the most popular in the Riviera Maya. Its location at the foot of the main road and its beauty place it among the most visited cenotes.

The good and the bad of most cenotes is that they are located far from the main roads and highways. This condition means that public transport does not reach the cenotes, something that makes access difficult, having to hire excursion or taxi to go to cenotes.

In Riviera Maya there are some easy-access cenotes due to its location near some main road, where public transport arrives. Among these cenotes is the Cenote Cristalino, which next to the Garden of Eden and the Cenote Azul, are the three beautiful cenotes in front of the Barceló hotel, one of the all-inclusive hotel chains in the stretch between Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
