I went on two Cenote tours in January 2017 in Cuzama MX. The first time a friend and I took the public bus from Merida to Cuzama. We happened upon Juan in town and his prices were lower than all the other drivers we talked to. He was very friendly, patiently waited for us at each stop and we felt... More

Don't hesitate to book a "guide" that is selling the tour the main road. They are nice people winning some money and they know the places the best! We book Alejandro from Homun, that took us on an "off-road" that we'd never found untill the wagons on a small railroad that transported us till the Cuzama cenotes. It's "back in... More

I went in the cenote with my girlfriend and a friend, we took the truc truc pulled by a horse. For 300 pesos (so 100 each) you have the ride and 3 cenotes, so worth it. We went there in the afternoon and we had to wait 15 minutes to get the trailer the ride is long but it's really... More

My friend and I had heard about cenotes being one of the highlights of the Yucatán - and after recommendations from both TripAdvisor and our hostel in Mérida, we decided to go to the ones in Cuzamá. (For the record, my friend and I are two young women). My one piece of advice is be prepared for a decidedly "rustic"... More

Fun day. We had the experience of the boys on the bikes cutting in front of our car on the way to the cenotes, but after a km or so we were able to get around them. The Palapas restaurant where you park is on the right side before the yellow church. The horse drawn cart for 4 and payment... More

We decided to do this trip on the last day before flying back home. The cost was 400 pesos for the round trip to all three cenotes. About 7km out from the cenotes, a pair of local boys bicycled in front of our car and insisted on 'guiding' us to the cenotes (ie; blocked the road to prevent us from... More

We stayed in Merida and decided to go on our own to Cuzama. Bus trip was easy and quick then we hired a motor taxi in a bit of Spanish we knew. The driver took us to the horse-cart station where we agreed on a price. However, not knowing any better we didn't check which cenotes he will be taking... More

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
