Where are you gonna be? There are beautiful cenotes in La ruta de los cenotes which is between Cancun and Puerto Morelos with several beautiful places with virtually no people at all. Most of the people in this area is congregated into Selvatica or Gorillax. Don't go there. You can try  Cenote Kin-Ha Cenote Verde Lucero Cenote Las Mojarras Cenote Boca del Puma Cenote La Noria, etcetera. As I write here there are probably new cenotes open for the public in the area so, if you rent a car: just drive the Cenotes Route and try'em all! :D

My recommendations would be Cenote Cristalino located south of the tulum pueblo on the left hand side. There is also a cenote on the right hand side where the parking is, and that was called Naharon back in the day when we were exploring that cave.

I recommend you contact Virginia from Oscar & Lalos, they have the most amazing underground cave system right behind them. They are  located south of Akumal10 minutes and North of Tulum 10 minutes. The family has been in the area for over 50 years and they specialize in small group expeditions that take you to beautiful places that avoids the crowds. See the caves system on facebook also they treat you like a VIP for a very cheap price. They own lots of cenotes and caves in the area plus know all the best spots and how to avoid the crowds perfectly .

Yes, I do.  First of all, get away from Cancun, it's a wasteland compared to the rest of the peninsula.  Cheapest airport to fly in and out of, but don't waste your limited vacation time there. I'm sure you have bars where you live. You will need a car to get to this place.  I prefer using the buses as much as possible in Mexico, but you will need a car for this one. Chetumal is probably the closest point to rent a car.

You need to go to see Rick and Dianne at Rio Bec Dreams,, just west of Xpuhil.   A wonderful spot to base from to see the many Mayan ruins, which will also be nearly deserted in this region.  Dianne is somewhat of an expert, if you need any guidance on all things Mayan. Don't let the glowing reports put you off, these unique accommodations are really quite reasonable. More than reasonable when you consider how far they have to go for supplies.  If you stay there, they will lend you one of their employees to guide you (for a tip) to the right milepost on the highway to follow a trail up to the cenote at sunset. This is a dry cenote.  No water.

Not what you were imagining?  Just wait for the sun to go down.  In the twilight you will see something start to flutter around down in the bottom.  Within minutes, there will be a cyclone of bats rising out of the twilight, spiraling to the top and spilling over the edge you are standing on, looking down into this 60 foot deep hole.  Hundreds of bats, turning to thousands of bats, turning into an endless river of bats flowing to the setting sun. This cenote contains the invisible access to the cave system below it, home to millions(?) of these little guys who will be flying right by, through your legs, under you arms, right by your head, looking for insects (not you), in the frantic race to take their place in the airborne flow.  We saw hawks waiting in the surrounding trees for dinnertime, as well as well as a jaguarundi up close who didn't know we were there watching him.  It was magic.
