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

The people who run it are a local cooperative of people from the village - no ugly businesses behind them. They've found the caves and cenotes themselves, and they will tell you wonderful stories about the area and their explorations if you are willing to speak a little Spanish. The horse-drawn carts are strange at first but make the experience... More

This is a very special experience I would highly recommend. Take a collectivo from calle 67. It takes about an hour but when you get off get someone to take you to the village in a moto taxi (drivers will likely find you) after ten minutes you'll get dropped at the train tracks and horses. The carts cost 350 and... More

Must do! Our group of 4 arrived around 9:30 am. We were the only guests. At first I wasn't sure if i could trust the people working there but it did not disappoint. We paid 120 pesos/person. There's a sign posted with the cost. It helps to know some Spanish as the tour guides don't speak English. The place is... More

The cenotes in cuzama are a health and safety Person's worst nightmare. About 10 miles each way on a mixture of horse-drawn carts on rails - if you are anxious about animal welfare, read no further - and motor cycle carts. It's bumpy and scary and the horse flies are really viscous vampiros!!! Each of the three caves is accessed... More

Not going to lie, I was nervous about going into this alone. I had read reviews saying everything was hard to find, that you needed 4 people for a horse cart, etc. But I did it by myself, and (with a bit of luck) had a truly incredible time. Here's what I did: I took a colectivo from 67th St,... More

After spending the morning at Mayapan, we drove to the Cenotes of Cuzama to cool off. There are 2 sites. One is more touristy than the other. The one we went to is run by the locals. Google map took us to that one from Mayapan and we are happy it did. The drive consisted of a 40 minute drive... More

it is a bit hard to find but well worth going. We started by taking a horse drawn trolley up to the meeting area. We paid the fee and took a motor scooter to the next horse drawn trolley. There we met our guide/conductor. He took us on a ride through the jungle to the first cenote. We spent 30... More

Went into 3 cenotes from cuzama. We didn't know about the "competing towns". Make you get to cuzama before selecting a guide...there were guides many miles before. Our guide lead us to the parking area where we got on the horse drawn carts on rails. Bring backpack camera pool shoes no flip flops. You can rent life vests. Climbing some... More

We visited these cenotes with our two kids ages 12 and 9. It was their first cenote experience and they thought it was awesome. Our guide was very good and helpful with how to navigate getting down there with kids. Our favorite was the first cenote, but they were all interesting and made our trip one of the highlights of...
