Cenote Cristal is a lush surface-level swimming area located 4km south of the center of Tulum.

Cenote Cristal, along with Cenote Escondido located directly across the street, share ownership and visitors can opt to pay for admission to eitehr at the parking area for Cenote Cristal, or buy admission to both at a discounted rate.

The crystaline water is blue and epically clear, and small swimming area is set in the jungle, surrounded by picturesque trees. There are several different access points, a jumping platform, ropes to help aid swimmers, and picnic tables placed around the perimeter. The clarity and limestone bottom make this a good place to bring snorkel gear to.

There are no lifeguards, nor equipment rentals here.

Cenote Cristal is open daily from 8am-5pm. Admission is MX$80 per person or MX$60 for children up to 11 years old. Visitors can pay MX$120 for admission to Cenote Cristal and Cenote Escondido across the street.
