Cenote Calavera a Stunning Swimming Spot in Tulum

Calavera Cenote is situated outside of Tulum on the road to Coba and is considered to be one of the most intimate cenotes of the town of Tulum. Calavera (Spanish for Skull) consists of one large cenote and two smaller ones that look like eyes, thus giving it the look of a skull.

The unique shape of this cenote alone is enough to cite curiosity about this cenote, which remains to be one of the Riviera Maya’s hidden gems. This cenote's crystal clear waters invite anyone who visits for a swim but it is also a popular destination for diving.

If you’re renting a car in Mexico and driving yourself it’s easy to discover and there is gravel parking lot out front. After a short walk from the parking lot start your journey by cliff jumping to gain access to the sinkhole.

The fee to the entrance is around 100 pesos which allows you to rent any equipment you want such as a life jacket, snorkel, scuba diving fins, and others. Exploring Cenote Calavera requires a good level of physical fitness, so make sure you’re in good shape. When you are ready to jump, watch out for divers surfacing and others casually swimming in the water below.
