Cenote Suytun is located at the Rancho Ganadero with four cenotes of which two are open to the public. It is a huge waterfilled chamber with several massive stalactites at the ceiling and a hole in the center. There is a stone wall built to the center of the chamber with a circular platform at the end, which is quite characteristic. It allows to see the chamber from the center without swimming. The spectacular spot is used by photographers and for Maya ceremonies. The place became known as Instagram-Cenote because of this spectacular plaform. It is often dry, but sometimes it is covered by up to half a meter of water and visitors have to wade to the platform. The cave is entered through an artificial tunnel with stairs.

The Cenote Suytun Kaapeh is nearby. Most of the ceiling has collapsed and so it forms a semi-open cenote. This cenote is also accessible through a tunnel with stairs. A kukulkan sculpture inside was carved by hand by artisans from the region.

The site is operated by Carlos and Mercedes. They also operate a small hotel with 18 cabins, restaurant and cafe.
