A wonderful experience. Go to Cuzama, go right in front of the yellow church and follow the road all the way to the end - you'll see a big palapa sheltering the restaurant. Park next to the restaurant. This is where the cenote tour first started in order for to provide income for the community after the henequen plantation was... More

Yucatán is filled with cenotes. Some younger than others, some big some small. If you are pressed for time and can only visit a couple, I recommend the Cuzamá cenotes. There's 3 of them almost side by side and they are all different. it's one hour from Mérida and if you didn't rent a car, there are tours available. Once... More

We've taken this tour 3 times and will always make an effort to get to the Cuzama cenotes when we're in the Yucatan. For first-timers it can be a little intimidating but keep going! We always go as a couple, but there were groups of just young women--it is very safe! There are many signs directing you to the place... More

These cenotes are absolutely incredible and a must see if you are in Merida!! The town of Cuzama is only about an hour from Merida and since you get 3 cenotes in one visit I would say these are the best to visit around Merida. We went in the combi to Cuzama and right when you get off there are... More

A very original experience ! We loved everything about it, from the ride (multiple ways of transportation split between rail carts with horses & motorcycle "tuktuk") to the 3 cenotes ! Suitable for 4 people at a time. We were two and met another couple to split the cost with. The whole thing takes almost 3h and it costs around... More

....these centotes are fun (though I simply couldn't bring myself to climb down into the tiny hole of one of them!) & the horse drawn transport used to visit them was different & quite charming (except when ours broke down and we had to sit and wait and wait and wait for another....) If you have your own transportation and... More

We had read on Trip Advisor to go through Cuzama to the small town of Homun. We did and were glad. Just drive into town and you will be approached about going to the cenotes. We hired Jose, a young man with a mototaxi (motorcycle mounted with a steel support for seats) to take us to 4 cenotes. I requested... More

The three cenotes aren't the most beautiful in Mexico but they each have quirky qualities, and the transportation that is involved is a lot of fun! If travelling solo, I would recommend trying to find a group of people to go to at either your accommodation or by waiting at the entrance, so that you can split the cost and... More

Don't miss it. This was a highlight of our trip. Went there with my husband and three sons and everyone had a great time.

Getting there is so much fun. You board a horse drawn cart on a train line that goes as fast as the horse can run. Hold on around the curves people. Duck down when you enter the first of 3 Cenotes. This is kind of tough going but not impossible if you are agile. There is no definition to explaining... More
