The cenote, shaped as a half moon, is situated 4km away from Tulum in the direction of Coba. It is the historical entrance of the cave system Sac Actun, long over 240km. Gran Cenote is impressive as much for its size than its beauty. The cavern line runs along beautifully decorated and vast white passages that seem sustained by immense white arches and columns. The speleothem are numerous and fragile, and the light from the entrance accompany the diver all along this beautiful tour. In the entrance, lots of marine life can be seen like fresh water turtles that inhabit the tiny central island.
