Description

Beautiful open cenote with facilities, including kayak, amazing zip line, wildlife...
prices from 75mxp to 150mxp depends what you want.
I think only for swimming is 30mx.
We slept at the parking lot for free, really quiet and there's a guard all night long. We were the first overlanders, and they were really happy to see us. It's a community administration. Recommend;)

La tirolesa solo está disponible los miércoles, viernes, sábados y domingos. Nosotros vinimos un Martes y nos cobraron 150 mxn si la tirolesa está disponible son 200 mxn. Se puede dormir en el terreno que hay delante pero no hay sombra y es bastante inestable. Los baños del ecocentro están bien aunque no tienen la instalación para duchas. Lo mejor del cenote es tener la posibilidad de ver monos araña o monos aulladores.

We arrived there a couple of minutes before 5 pm. They were about to close but the staff was still on duty. Without having said anything everybody knew what we were looking for. There was no need to tip or bribe anyone. We paid MEX$ 100 pp for camping including the entrance fee for the evening and the following day.

Great place ! We arrived late afternoon and paid 50 pesos pp for the cenote entrance. Totally worth it. Nice place for a quick swim and some clean toilets and outdoor showers. We slept at the parking spot in from of the cenote. It’s more an empty land then a parking spot but it was free and they let us us the bathroom the next morning free of charge.

Chill spot with a funny security guard. He didnt really know what to do.. we asked if we could park for the night & he said no ... after a bit of confusion and flustering about he said ok, for 50 pesos! We laughed and shared a coffee then went about calling it a night. Nice place thats safe with beautiful stars!! I feel like this place will be shut down soon because of the sketchyness of the situation! So make it less sketchy and visit the Cenote in the morning :)

Report Check-In

We arrived at 5 pm, no one there. One hour later the owner of the restaurant next to this place (who also offered us to stay overnight for 150 pesos) managed to alert the security guard !! :-)), who had already been sleeping and was almost impossible to wake up. Told us to park in front of the entrance office, but chased us away to the parking lot at 7 am in the morning. Paid him 50 pesos, but don`t really know what for. Entrance fee after negotiation was 150 pesos for two adults for swimming only. At night a few people arrived and stayed until the the early morning shortly before the staff arrived. If you have already been to real cenotes there is absolutely no reason to come here. Didn`t feel very safe, but was already dark. There is at least one more campsite in town. One big experience are the howlermonkeys at night. The echo from the 100 meter (300 ft) lower lake is simply tremendous.

Awesome place if you’re on the road between Chetumal and Campeche. As mentioned, there’s a nightguard there after 5pm (after the ticket office closes). So if you arrive after 5: just tip him for the night and he also lets you go down to the cenote for free. However, the cenote is an important source of employment for this community, so we decided to pay the 100 pesos entrance per person in the morning and go for a swim again. It’s worth the money and the people are lovely, so we think it’s fair paying for it.
It could be marked as dog friendly: dogs are always allowed on the parking lot where you sleep. According to the sign, they cannot enter the cenote, but the people there said it’s fine so our dog had a nice swim :)
Highly recommend !

Cool place but really just a lake, not a cenote. We got here late and it was pouring rain so we waited until it closed and talked to the night security. He said we could spend the night inside the gate for free and could go inside as we pleased. We tipped him $50 for two cars and 4 people, checked out the lake and all the monkeys hanging out, and were allowed to use the bathrooms and outdoor showers. Another van also stayed in there for free

Wonderful, fun place. It was a hot day and the water felt so good. We paid 400 pesos for family of four and it included zip line, swimming and kayaks. They also supply life jackets.
During the day it was crowded but we expected that as it was a Sunday and Semana Santa.
We camped overnight (just us and the guard) for 100 pesos.
We also found a taco stand across the street that was delicious.

Le parking en face du site n’existe plus, ce n’est qu’un amas de terre et de pierres informe. En travaux sûrement...
Vous pouvez dormir dans le parking fermé du site gratuitement, par contre c’est en plein soleil. Le sol n’est pas droit, à part sur la petite partie d’herbe côté clôture de la route.

beautiful place and friendly locals (sell good natural honey :) They invited us to camp inside the night guarded parking for free (we have a 30 feet motorhome). 100 pesos per person for cenote access + 20 min kayak, 100 pesos more for quite impressive around 100 meter long 30 meter high tirolesa (2 rounds). Banos and room teperature shower included. possibility of water filling by pulling a hose fron the sanitary builing. Ask night ward for assistance. We could see both hawling and spider monkeys on the 20 min trail around the cenote. A haven fairly worth the detour.

We (a group of 6) paid 60MP/pp. Beautiful cenote, not very crowded even during the weekend.
If you don't want to pay and are just looking for a place to spend the night, you can park in front of the property for free - next to the railway - but obviously you cannot enter the cenote and use their facilities (toilets and cold outdoor showers). Maybe the guard can let you in after they close at 5pm, but I'd negotiate a better price (they ask 100MP for foreigners) and park in the property, otherwise it doesn't make much sense to come all the way here and not enjoy the cenote.

Nice free place in front of the parking

Nice place. Pretty quiet. No service on the phone.
Free if you park outside the parking lot, 100 pesos if you want in.
We parked outside and other camper joined us.
The cenote isn’t beautiful but has nice activities as « tirolesa » kayaks, and the water is pretty warm.

Very nice place to stay for the night! We arrived here after sunset, and José the guard received us very well. He told us to park wherever we wanted, he showed us the bathrooms (very clean) and he didnt even asked us for money to stay (we gave him 50 pesos as a tip next day). The cenote was pretty nice. We visited it at night, and the next day early in the morning. We didnt see more tourist during our stay.

beautiful cenote at an eco park... which means of course tirolesa. We pulled up at 5 as the park was closing and negotiated 100 p/p. which was the extranjero medium package which includes a full day of swim and kayak. they agreed to let us swim that night and next morning. watched monkeys play at sunset with the cenote completely empty. lot was kind of flat leveling, was easy. The road next to the lot had a few cars driving by very late as it was a passage between pueblas. outdoor cold showers.

Stayed the night at the parking lot without any extra charges. Very quiet night, in the morning we saw monkeys and birds and saw turtles in cenote.
The prices increased, 200 pesos for full package (swimming/kayak/zip line /hiking) or 100 pesos for swimming/kayak/hike.
We enjoyed the zip line the most. You fly 80 m high from one side of the cenote to the other. Staff is super nice and some lady's across the street sell delicious juices.
