Conveniently located right in the center of the city of Valladolid, Cenote Zaci is raved about by families who love swimming in the crystalline cool waters.

Said to reach about 300 feet deep, Cenote Zaci is bowl shaped, and covered by a roof of stalactites.

Aside from being able to swim in the waters of the cenote, there is also a rope swing and a 12 meter platform from which adventurous travelers can dive in.


Located near the heart of Valladolid, Cenote Zaci invites local customers and travelers who are lodging in this town or an adjacent area. Even if you aren't staying very close, you should consider stopping by to enjoy a great time.

The eatery is a slight distance away, but out of the way enough that you will probably want to arrange for taking advantage of a mode of transportation to travel there.
