6 Best Cenote Tours from Valladolid, Mexico [2021]

Looking for the best cenote tour in Valladolid? Look no further as I’ve done all the research for you!

It might be hard to believe that although there are so many incredible cenotes near Valladolid, there aren’t many Mexico cenote tours available that actually depart from Valladolid. And of the Valladolid cenote tours that do exist, many don’t have great reviews!

So I’ve done the research for you, and selected the Valladolid tours that offer the best quality/price ratio and that come with great reviews from previous travelers. Let’s check them out!

Best Cenote Tour from Valladolid

Check out the beautiful cenotes that surround Valladolid by this affordable and super fun cenote tour by bike. You’ll get to swim at 3 of my favorite cenotes that are unique but not as crowded as some of the most famous one: Cenote Oxman, Cenote Xkeken, and Cenote Samula.

Your guide will also show you the market of Valladolid and bring you to a traditional Mayan village. Even better, the local tour operator donates 3% of your tour price to a local charity project.

This tour also includes: lunch.

Quick Cenote Tour

Have little time during your Yucatan roadtrip but you can’t leave without visiting at least one beautiful cenote? Smart choice! Make the most of your limited time by choosing this 2-hour experience that combines swimming at a unique cenote, Zazil Tunich, with dinner and an ancient Mayan ceremony.

This tour also includes: dinner. Please note: no transport included.

Mayan Ruins + Cenote

If you’re based in Valladolid, you’ve got around you some of the most incredible Mayan ruins in all of Mexico, so going on a day trip that combines them with some beautiful cenotes is definitely a good idea!

Leave early and explore the pyramids of Chichen Itza, one of the 7 Wonders of the World, at your own pace with little crowds, before cooling off in probably the most famous cenote in all of Mexico, Cenote Ik Kil. Finish off your Cenote Ik Kil tour with a buffet lunch where you’ll get to experience the typical dishes of the region such as cochinita pibil.

This tour also includes: round-trip private transportation from your hotel, water and lunch.

➤ If you’ve already visited Chichen Itza, or you simply want to visit a less crowded Mayan site, this half-day tour to Ek Balam + cenote is for you. Ek Balam is one of few ruins where you can still climb the pyramids! You’ll then deserve a refreshing dip at Cenote X’Canche, an open-air cenote, and on your way back you can stop at a tequila distillery (optional).

This tour also includes: round-trip transportation from your hotel.

Cenote Maya Native Park: Best Adventure Experience

If you’re looking for some adrenaline, then the Cenote Maya in Valladolid is right for you. In this tour you’ll get not only to swim in the biggest vaulted Cenote in the Yucatan peninsula, but to rappel into it. Plus, you’ll zipline over the trees, slack line with Tarzan vines and participate in a traditional Mayan ceremony. You’ll finish with lunch. Doesn’t it sound fun? Plus it’s a highly affordable tour!

At this time, this experience does NOT include transportation; you’ll need to make your way to the Cenote Maya park on your own. You can either take a taxi or drive your rental car (it’s around a 40 minutes drive).

This tour also includes: traditional meal, locker, and towel.
