beautiful and quiet campground close to the Laguna (don't see the lake from the place). Good for tents and big rigs. Very clean. 10minutes walk to a small but very nice waterfall - don't miss to go. We loved this harmony place.

February 12th, 2020 Frogs Heaven

arrived late in the afternoon and could stay there overnight in the parkinglot.
We booked a daily foto-tour started 08.00am till 4.30pm including lunch. Francisco is a splendid guide. He knows a lot about photographies, frogs and snakes and how to present them as 'models'. It was an excellent day with him.
Whole day we paid 80$pp and it was worth it!

Next to the central park in a parking lot. We where at the Laguna Verde and decided to pass the night like other overlanders there. But police came and told us, in there opinion it is not a good idea to stay there alone. So they brought us to this place. Quiet night. Felt good.

not the nicest place. Some cenotes few kilometers on the other side of mex180 nicer and less visitors. paid 200 pes/p to stay in camper over night incl entrances to both cenotes. 30pes for life jacket to suytún. The other smaller cenote (pass cabaña 5), no swimm! is a little bit pzretty to take pictures, colondrinas ant To-birds. Moskitos!!

April 2nd, 2019 Cenote Ka'anajaltun - NICE

If the cenote Zazil Tunich was too busy you will find with this cenote (Xcanahaltun) a realy relaxing, tranquil and beautyful underground pool with plenty of stalactits and sunlight falling from a tophole to the water. Entrance 100 p/p. everything clean and welldone.

March 11th, 2019 Akten Ha Aqua

filled up around 60l with our own hose and asked 80pesos cause he could not check the exactly quantity. Not possible to negiciate. Garaffones would give more worke but is cheeper (16$/garaffon). Not friendly, we recommend another place!

March 9th, 2019 Muul Ich cenote

beautyful, awesome cenote. You have to enter a 10m deep spiral staircase. Illuminated by generator and some sunbeams reached the ground (around noon). Amazing to swimm in the clear water. 60ppp without negotiating.
Follow the path on your right and you'll reach after a short distance a big halfopen mystic cave with nice trees inside. Right away on your right you refind your car
