On a hot day in Mexico, the Cenote Cristalino was a great place to cool off. We had spent the morning in Tulum exploring the Ancient Mayan Ruins and wanted to do something in the water.

About halfway between Tulum and Playa Del Carmen is the Cenote Cristalino.

The parking area is right off of the highway and they have a big sign in front that looks like this:

We paid our entrance fee of $200 Mexican Pesos per person, grabbed our life jackets (not mandatory to wear) and headed down the trail to the cenote.

The Cenote also has a swing you can hang out on. Here's Julie taking a break from snorkeling to spend some time on the swing.

The water was really clear for snorkeling and diving down to the bottom of the cenote.

We spent the rest of our time snorkeling and jumping off the platform. We loved our time at Cenote Cristalino and would highly recommend it!
