Description

beautiful cenote for snorkeling or scuba diving. new toilets and showers recently built (2018) crowded only on weekends. 20 pesos (now 100 pesos 05/01/2022) per person for swimming and we could stay here overnight for free (now
60 pesos per person), super quiet, beautiful stars and in the morning we took a good morning dip enjoying the Cenote just for ourselves. Go in there early for great sunlight angle and reflections in the water.

Our first cenote. Kids loved jumping into the water from the platform. We arrived in the afternoon and left in the morning. We (family of five, with all kids over 6) paid 600 pesos after some bargaing.

They now want 100 MXN/person for entrance to the cenote.
After we complained about the steep price they said they had built a new staircase a few months ago and offered us 80 MXN/person entry and 60 MXN/person for camping.

Since the parking lot was rather crowded and we didn't think the price was appropriate, we left and went to the free Cenote Chihuo-Hol instead.

Nice Cenote
We traded the end of a mezcal bottle and a pack of cigarillos in order to stay the night for free. Nando and Jose, the two chaps at the entry rope were quite happy about it. Still paid 60 pesos per person for the entry. We were a group of 7 in two jeeps. Calm spot for camping.

Nice Cenote. Entry 60MXN pp. Twice as much as the Cenotes around Homun. Paid the entrance and said we will decide later if we stay the night. Next day late morning we left quietly and nobody came asking for more money.

Our first cenote, what a treat. $200p to camp and enter the cenote as much as we want. Twice in one day, and first thing the next morning. It's a beautiful, clean cenote. The bathrooms and showers are nice as well. We are traveling with our dog, and they were very nice about him being free in the area, and even let him come down to the cenote and hang out. He wasn't allowed in the water, which we totally understood. Highly recommend.

Now they are asking for 60MXP/pP for the cenote. We asked why the prices doubled since April (last comment), they said they were building the stairs new. Worth the price, beautiful place.
We didn’t stay for the night, but they told us it’s 100MXP/pP to camp.
Showers, WC, and a little restaurant.

Report Check-In

Now 60 p/p. We thought it was 30. It's expensive considering the deviation you have to do.

Ahora cuesta 60 p/p. Nosotros vinimos creyendo que era 30. Es caro considerando el desvío que hay que hacer!

Pricing is definitely random here. When we arrived the gate staff seemed to pull a price out of thin air after some discussion amongst themselves. We ended up paying $80 pesos pp for camping and $30 pesos pp for entrance to the cenote, $230 in total for two people and the van. The cenote was beautiful and we had it all to ourselves in the evening and early morning. Toilet block is clean and new, cold showers help with the heat. The road to get here is narrow, but strait and fine for big rigs, but anything taller than 3.2-3.5m probably wouldn’t fit through the gate and would scratch the overhanging foliage. Overall; worth the visit and price for us. Beautiful cenote and great quiet camping; recommended.

Paid 160MX for two to go to the cenote ans sleep there, which is a fair price. We went there on a thursday afternoon and were alone during 2 hours before a family arrived. To have sunlight inside, be sure to arrive not too late (before 3pm)☀️
Semi-flat spot, clean and not too cold shower, clean wcs. Place with palapa for the tents.

Warning. Brand new “gate” at entrance. About 3.5 meters high. Out truck camper with rocket box would not fit underneath. Had to park on road under high voltage wires

Report Check-In

Price was 100 pp for camping and 30 pp for cenote. Well worth it especially when you have it all to yourself but just wanted to update the price. It could be flexible based on the person collecting the money. Total was 260 but suuuuuper pretty and really nice new bathrooms + showers.

Report Check-In

Loved it here. Very friendly guy. Peaceful night camp-spot and s beautiful cenote. Especially good early in the morning when there are lots of bats circling and the sun shines in at an angle to create reflections from the hanging tree roots. A clear sign says it's 30pp to enter. Camping price isn't listed and seems a bit random. We paid 45pp to camp, so 150 pesos for cenote and camping for 2 people. Excellent new bathrooms and showers. Good value.

Outstanding Cenote! We were alone here and it’s probably one of the most beautiful cenotes around.
Pricing seems to be a bit random: We paid 30 pesos for entrance plus 50 for camping (per person), so 160 pesos for 2 people in total which we considered a fair price. Facilities are standard but I think they are currently building new showers.

The camping spot isn’t much to look at, but the cenote is outstanding, as is the peace and tranquility for the night. Paid 130 as per sign (30 for cenote + 100 for camping). Nothing like having that gorgeous cenote all to yourself!

We spent one night in the beautiful cenote. Our first but after this one it's going to be hard to beat ! :)
Warning : THE PRICES CHANGED.
It's now 30$MXN per person for the entrance and 130$MXN per person (including toilets, access to the cenote) with you want to camp! So it's just huge with you camp here. We negociate so hard with the guy (who he is nice) and we concluded ended paying 120 for camping for 2 persons!
Good luck ! 🤗
The cenote it's just beautiful, we were here on a Saturday and we were surprised it wasn't to crowded. Apparently seems to be well know for diving. It's also a nice waterline spot (35m). We put the picture!

Actually after ten cenotes, it's our best cenote ! the place is quiet, good and perfect for enjoy to swim when you want. At twelve the sun light in the cave was incredible ! Free for camp and entrance cenote is 20$ /pers.

Beautiful cenote with crystal clear water, big enough to swim. The toilets are simple but clean, also the whole area. Still 20 pesos/person to swim. We didn't stay overnight.

Really cool. The Cenote is extremely beautiful and if you camp there you can have it all to your own in the morning and at night. Stayed there 2 nights and paid 50 per night incl. entrance. Nice bathrooms, and very quiet at night.

Exactly as described.
Regarding the price, we may be not really could at bargaining, but even after saying that camping used to be free, or offering to pay to the entrance for two days, the owners didn't want to compromise : the price we paid is 20 pesos per person for the entrance to the cenote, and 50 pesos per person for camping (includes the entrance to the cenote the following day).
Nevertheless, it's worth it.

$20 pesos per person, and the cenote was great. Asked about camping, and they said it was fine, but would be crowded the next day starting around 9 or 10. Told them we'd be out by 9, and they didn't charge us anything to extra. Somewhat crowded when we arrived mid afternoon on a Saturday, but we had the place to ourselves by 5:30 or so.

Very worthy cenote with friendly owners. They pretended to charge us 100 pesos per camping and should leave in the morning. I told them about the info here in iOverlander and negotiate to pay the entrance of both days but free camping and could stay all day. 80 pesos per 2 people two days entrance + camping.

Really beautiful cenote! Did not charge us 100p to camp, only the 20p/ person for entry. The people running the place are super friendly. They seem to have recently built the bathrooms which are very nice, and there is a huge sink where they let us wash our dishes. We thought we had the place all to ourselves as it's pretty out of the way to get here, but a lot of tourists showed up after 10:30am the next morning.

Wonderfull cenote. We paid 20p each to enter. We asked for camping. The owner agreed and it was free. Early in the morning we had the cenote just for ourselves.

Beautiful cenote! We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was pretty packed although everyone left around 6pm. Camped for 100 pesos for 2 people and swam/snorkeled both days. In the early morning no one was there and the cenote was incredibly clear and still. I highly recommend going in the morning.

As per the above, after visiting 5 cenotes (not that I am an expert with 5 but the best one so far). I think that between the previous visit and mine, the 'patron' decided to charge for camping. He wanted 100p, I do not know if that included the 20 for the parking/swim. I mentioned with my poor spanish that someone had stayed here for 2-3 and it was libre. For me, 100 just for parking middle of nowhere with nothing but silence. Stayed for 3hrs and left and headed off to Merida for the night.

Amazing clear water cenote. 20 pesos per person and we were allowed to sleep there. Great for snorkling and diving. BUT it was a challenge to get there with our 3.2 m high rig. We scrached it a lot (low branches). 2 km of dirt bumpy road to get there from the "main road". Still was worth it.

Report Check-In

AMAZING! This Cenote is amazing, tucked just off a main road and down a bit of gravel. The water is a touch warm and so clear you can't see it until there is a ripple. Paid 20mx including camping, a few ppl stopped by in the afternoon thou the morning and evening the Cenote is all yours.
Great place!

This is our first Cenote and wow is it rad! They said we could camp, and did not mention any additional price. We are heading to other cenotes since we have time. We had our own snorkel gear. Was really cool, birds flying around, fish swimming, clear bright blue water, deep beautiful! Bathrooms are nice. No TP or toilet seats...standard! Dogs are ok, but not in the Cenote. Maybe if you camped they could get in when no one is here.
