Cenotes de Cuzamá
Cenotes de Cuzamá information
Three kilometers east of the town of Cuzamá, accessed from the small village of Chunkanan, are the Cenotes de Cuzamá, a series of three amazing limestone sinkholes accessed by horse-drawn railcart in an old henequén hacienda. The fun horse-drawn ride will jar your fillings loose while showing you attractive scenes of the surrounding, overgrown agave fields.
Iguana sightings are a sure bet here, but keen eyes can also spot vultures or caracaras, as well as other birds, lizards and the occasional rabbit or two.
One of the cenotes is featured in much of Yucatán’s tourist literature, and all three are spectacular, with rope-like roots descending along with ethereal shafts of light to the crystal-clear, deep-blue water. You'll likely find yourself sharing a dip with other bathers unless you get an early start. Several cenotes have steep stairways or ladders that are often slippery, so use caution at all times.
