Holidays in Cenote Zaci
Holiday Travel Guide

Take a break from the mighty Mexican sun in this cool and scenic natural pool, located in an urban setting. 

Find Cenote Zací in the heart of Valladolid, in a convenient spot for taking a casual dip during a tour of this colonial town. Join tourists and locals alike as you swim in the turquoise waters of the pool. Look up and see the stalactites and hanging vines over some parts of the cenote. And leave time to browse for souvenirs once you have dried off.

Cenotes are deep natural pools formed by sinkholes, which are strewn across the Yucatán Peninsula. It is thought there may be around 6,000 cenotes in the region. Most cenotes are surrounded by jungle, but Cenote Zací is, unusually, right in the middle of a town. Jump in and feel certain that your feet won’t touch the bottom. The shallowest parts of the water are between 82 and 98 feet (25 and 30 meters) in depth, while in some places the sinkhole goes down much further.

The cenote is very popular, so come during a weekday afternoon if you would prefer a quiet experience. Climb the stairs carved into the side of the cave that surrounds the pool and dive in from the high stone platforms that cater to daredevils. Float on your back in the water and look up at the lush greenery and fragrant jasmine trees that fringe the cenote. Think of the blind fish that swim far beneath, in the depths of the water.

One of the benefits of Cenote Zací’s popularity is that it is very well-maintained. After your swim, stop for lunch at the on-site restaurant. Next, pick up some local handicrafts, such as homemade jewelry, sandals, carvings and more. Local merchants sell a wide array of wares near the cenote.

Walk to Cenote Zací in just minutes from Valladolid’s Main Plaza. To gain access to this urban oasis, either pay the small entry free or buy some food or a drink at the attached restaurant and get free admission.
