If you are in the Mexican Caribbean, you cannot miss out on these 6 mos recomended cenotes in tulum and Coba.  Beautiful places that are found in the jungle between Tulum and Coba. These are little-explored places, but nowadays they are attracting a lot of attention worldwide.

Underground cenote ilumination

It means in the Mayan language “stones in the water”. You need to go down 18 meters by a wooden ladder until you reach the platform built under the vault. From there you can freely swim from side to side. I suggest you rent a mask to appreciate all the details that make up this beautiful place.

Divign in cenotes
This cenote is characterized by having the water of a jade green tone, and around it, stalactites and stalagmites can be observed. These truly impressive details undoubtedly put this cenote as one of the favorites in the area. Of course, the most important attraction is swimming to enjoy the cool and transparent water.



Beautiful cenote in the Coba area, its clear and crystalline waters await you to launch yourself from a 10-meter platform. In fact, it is one of the only cenotes where this can be done, since it has the appropriate depth and space. It is very worth a try, I am sure you are going to love it

The only cenotes in Tulum in the area where you can enjoy a different environment, it is the perfect combination to spend an extraordinary day, since the cenote is located right between a Sacbé (white road) and Mayan vestiges. In this place you can enjoy the cenote and at the same time, you can learn various interesting aspects of the Mayan culture. Right there you will meet people from the Mayan community working in the preservation of their customs, as well as in the production of various products made of Melipona honey, which they themselves make in the same place


Cenote Yax Muul

This cenotes in Tulum is open, although it is small, it also has its charm. I highly recommend it to families with children as it is literally a natural pool. Its depth ranges from 5 to 6 meters and it has a small zipline to launch. The shades of its turquoise blue water are simply indescribable. You have to visit it, it is located about 15 minutes from Tulum.


Unlike the others, this cenote is semi-open. It has interconnected caves, where you can swim and explore ancient caves. Here I highly recommend renting or taking your snorkeling equipment. It is 10 minutes from Tulum and you can go by bike.

There are many ways to get to these places, however today the most recommended is on a private tour.
