Cenote Escondido

E. of Carretera Federal 307 , 2.5 miles south of Tulum
Tulum , Mexico

Many cenotes—sinkholes in the subterranean rivers that riddle the Yucatán—are either limited to divers or overrun with crowds, but not this 15-by-130-foot pool, fringed with fan palms on a rocky bluff. Accessible by a short jungle trek, it includes hundreds of fish zipping through clear water, plus stunning stone formations less than 20 feet deep.
