Gran Cenote It has the particularity of being able to swim through a part of the cave and through an open section, this combination makes you swim through tunnels between the different entrances to the cenote. The outer sections are beautiful due to the powerful nature that surrounds it. Gran Cenote is the main entrance to the Sac Actun System, also known as The White Cave. This is the longest flooded cave on the planet, almost nothing 😉

The beauty of the cenote does not go unnoticed, that is why it is one of the most visited. Being one of the most beautiful near Riviera Maya is very popular. Personally, the busiest cenotes lose a bit of charm, I admit I am very well used and if I can I like to enjoy the wonderful cenotes in the greatest solitude possible. The Grand Cenote is difficult to see alone, but it is so beautiful and special that it is difficult to say no. If you go early you will surely be alone.

It was one of the first that I went, that everyone talks about and you saw some cool photo. The only one that beats it in popularity in Riviera Maya is cenote Dos Ojos, which shares the same particularity as Gran Cenote: outdoor sections and the possibility of swimming with your head all the time out of the water through tunnels of the cave, something very beautiful to experience in a cenote. That also makes both cenotes unique in this area.
