Cenote Nicte-Ha is one of several cenotes that make up the Parque Dos Ojos. The cenote is a smallish clear emerald lake in a shallow limestone depression, and is set amidst lush manicured jungle surroundings with smooth paved walkways and colorful fauna growing atop and beneath the surface of the water.

With the shallow depth and the clarity of the water, this cenote is popular for snorkeling and is a location for easy dives, with the depth extending to about 8 meters.

There is a jumping platform at the edge of the limestone shelf, along with benches and chairs set out on the terraces that surround the cenote.

Life jackets are available at no cost at the cenote. Snorkel equipment is available for rent at the visitor center (MX$70).

All visitors must stop at the Parque Dos Ojos Visitor Center and pay admission before proceeding to Cenote Nicte-Ha. The Visitor Center will try to upsell visitors on snorkel and diving tours. 

Cenote Nicte-Ha is open daily from 8am-5pm. Admission is MX$200 per person, ages 7 and up.
