Description

One of the best cenotes in Mexico!! 100 pesos and worth every penny. We saw a little sign on the (free) highway between Valladolid and Cancun and decided to check out this little cenote. It turned out to be one of the best cenotes we have been to. It's not well known and therefore you might be (like we were) the only visitors there. The water is nice and the cave itself is amazing! People are very friendly and we had one guy telling us all about the cenote and its discovery. There's space for about 6-8 vans to park. You can camp here, however you should inform the people about it and it will cost but I don't know the price. They have showers & toilets and changerooms. We visited X-Keken before this one and would definitely recommend this one due to the fact that you have your own cenote without having to share it with 50 other tourists!!

best free cenote experience ever !!! we had the whole place to our selves. we couldn't access the cenote because it closes a 6pm and light is required to enter. we couldn't wait the next day and went with our headlamps, we had this huge cave filled with turquoise water to our selves it was magical, the best way to experience a cenote. we only paid 200pesos for the night and had access to all the commodities and could charge our phones ! this place remains our favourite spot so far

We camped here for one night. It is 200 pesos for camping and 100 pesos per Person for the Cenote. The gate close at 5 pm, so make sure you arrive before.

Nice flat area to camp. Very quiet and cool at night. You can use the toilets and shower during the night (very clean).

Very bad internet service and no wifi.

The cenote is wonderful.

They have spent a lot of time upgrading this place. The yellow sign outside doesn’t do it justice. It’s a must, best cenote yet., the cenote/ cave is huge with big stalagmites and stalactites. The sign outside doesn’t look great, but the cenote and landscaping outside is perfect. We camped here aswell. A perfect quiet night. 100 peso entrance each, plus 100 pesos per person to camp. Note the gate shuts somewhere between 3 and 4. It is a safe place to camp. We had cel coverage and well worth it as per previous comment. I reckon a big rig would do ok here.

We didn’t sleep here because we were too late in the day. They had closed their gates at 5pm. We really wish we had made it earlier as we were dreadfully ripped off at the Cenote up the road.
Anyway, when visiting the next morning, this one was wonderful. We had it all to ourselves and enjoyed a fresh drink out of one of their coconuts upon our exit. Their showers and toilets were very clean and overall everything was well organized. Day entry cost 100 pesos per person and was well worth it.

Put this on your list to visit! So beautiful! Such an amazing cenote.
If you have a snorkel and waterproof torch take them to get the most out of your time here.
They told us that this cenote has another section where there is a tunnel that is 50m deep and the people who first scuba dived here found the skull of a human and a deer dating back to the Mayan times. Super interesting!
The dirt road in is a little rough but managable in a 2wd and you don't high clearance.

Arrived at 5pm. Very nice people, 200p for camping & entry p/night. + 100p Cenote entry. Unwilling to negotiate price. AMAZING cavern/Cenote. Clean toilets with seats & outdoor shower Our Euro style ‘big rig’ 4x4 truck, had no problem driving in, stayed 2 nights. Wifi reception @ 6 am. . Quiet at night. Worth the money.

Entrance fee per adult is 100 peso. Overnight stay is 200 peso per car and 100 peso for the night guard, who was not there the whole night. Could not get the money back because we left before somebody was there. Toilets are clean, cold and rustic showers but new building almost finished. Beautiful cenote and worth the entrance compared to other more expensive cenote in Quintana Roo. Very nice family running the place. The road is rough but ok for bigger rigs, we made it with 2wd and 6 meter long RV. Very quiet at night and not so crowdy during the day. Be careful with the names, both Chooj Ja and Choj Ha is the same cenote.

Indeed one of the best cenotes!! You go down a little natural entrance hole and once in you are just impressed at what you see.To the right a dry cave with imense stalactites and lots of swallows who are hunting. And to the left a wonderful cenote with millions of stalactites and clear blue water to swim in. The community who runs the place has installed light and it looks like a wonderland. Entrance 100 Peso/Pers. and really worth it. No tourist trap like many on the Mayan coast. We had the place for us!! This is defenitely a place you should visit.

Beautiful underground cenote! After a bit of haggling they let us (2ppl) stay for 300$ (100 for the entry, 200 for camping). Bucket flush toilets, cold showers and vestidores.
The people running the place are lovely. This is our sixth cenote we visited and hands down best so far. Entry to cenote closes at 5.
They told us two people sleep at the site but really all that happened was two guys checked by at 7. I would haggle down a bit more than we did since this is the case :)

$100 peso per person for centoe and to camp another 200 peso per car to have guard stay the night bc they said people hunt near there, did not stay.

100 pesos per person and 200 to camp/sleep in car for 2 people. The road was rough, from what we could see there were no facilities. We said it was too expensive for us so he dropped the price to 150 for the cenote. Still too much for what we saw so we decided to leave. As we left there was a big tour group of tourists coming.

didn't stay, wanted 100 pesos per person including kids.

brilliant underground cenote. we visited on a Sunday and there were lots of Mexican and Mayan families there too. lovely atmosphere and friendly people running it. they charged us 100 pesos per person, though they were charging the locals less. we asked about staying the night in our camper and they recommended we have 2 of their people stay overnight to guard us. they wanted 100 pesos each, which seemed fair but we decided to move on. there are now changing rooms and basic toilets and showers - still all very rustic.

Great cenote run by a very friendly local family. A bit pricy. Paid 100 pesos per person to stay overnigth and 75 pesos entry fee per person. But restrooms are very clean and also the area around the cenote. Great with the dog to walk around.

One of the best cenotes in Mexico!! We saw a little sign on the (free) highway between Valadolid and Cancun and decided to check out this little cenote.

People are very friendly and we had one guy telling us all about the cenote and its discovery. There's only little space for parking and the 600m from the main street make it almost impossible for bigger rigs and trailers. You can camp here, however you should inform the people about it. No showers & toilets yet but they are building some in the near future. We visited X-Keken before this one and would definitely recommend this one due to the fact that you have your own cenote without having to share it with 50 other tourists!!
