The best cenotes of Merida
It is a cenote with a fantastic infrastructure where instagramers or influencers have taken thousands of photos that have made it popular.
It is a cavern with an opening at the top, where the sun s rays enter, making from this cenote, an ideal place to click and capture the moment in a photo.
It is located 8.6 kilometers from Valladolid, Yucatán (it takes about 15 minutes by car). If you leave from Playa del Carmen you take 1 hour 45 minutes by toll road or 2 hours 5 minutes, approximately, by free in the direction of Tulum.
The entrance to Cenote Suytun is $ 120 pesos.
There are no prices for locals, children, or nationals, all even !; although there is a package that includes buffet food + your entrance for $ 230 pesos.
They are open every day from 9am to 5pm.
Your entrance ticket includes access to two cenotes, although in one does not allow you to swim, but you can appreciate it and take photos of it.
You can rent a cabin in the jungle, having free entrance to the cenotes. Remember to book in advance to secure your spot.
If you really want to enjoy the nearly empty cenote and get that amazing photo for your social media, you will need to arrive early. Between 9 and 10 in the morning (the earlier you get up, the better), since after noon, multiple trucks and vans start arriving with tourists excited to see the place, and things can get a bit tight.
To enter the cenote you have to go down some stairs that are a bit slippery due to the humidity, so we recommend you bring water shoes.
When you enter the cenote you feel a humid environment. Inside this cave they built some steps so you can sit or leave your belongings while you take a dip. Try to carry a backpack or waterproof bag so that your belongings do not get wet.
There is a part of the cenote where you can take incredible photos and at noon witness a dance -type Mayan ceremony- in the center of the cenote, where sunlight hits them just above.
The water temperature is a bit cold, although after a while in the water, you acclimatize. There is an area of the cenote that is less than 1.30 m deep, where you can swim very comfortably, and another that is deeper than 5 meters. The use of a life jacket is mandatory and the cost is included in the entrance, so you do not have to pay extra.
It does not have showers, but it does have changing tables and bathrooms -very decent, by the way-. There is also a souvenir shop for you to buy a souvenir upon departure.
We share some recommendations for you to make the most of this site:
Wear an aquatic t-shirt (in case you get cold)
Water shoes to avoid slipping.
Goggles so you can appreciate the bottom of the cenote.
We hope that you enjoy this cenote. Remember to take your trash and not to use sunscreen or repellants.
