One of our favorite cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula is Cenote Calavera near Tulum. This unique cenote is great for both swimming and diving and is an easy day trip if you are staying in Tulum or Xpu Ha areas and even Playa del Carmen.
With names like Calavera (Which means Skull in Spanish) and “Temple of Doom” we had to check this place out on our last visit to Tulum. This cenote did not disappoint! A short walk from the parking lot located on the main highway we found our new favorite cenote – and the best part is it starts with a cliff jump to get in!
To safeguard the ecosystem, the use of skin-creams, sunscreen, insect repellants etc. is forbidden, so please shower prior to entering the water.
