    Fantastic half day trip! About an hours drive. They take you into the jungle by donkey pulled carts that used to used for harvesting henequen. You visit three beautiful underground Cenotes where you have 30 minutes of swim time at each before heading back. We do this trip with every guest that comes to visit.

    80 mins from the house

    My favorites cenotes of all of my life, Cuzama are 3 close cenotes that are out of the little town of Cuzama, a great ecotour at the zone with awesome pictures cenotes at all the state of Yucatan are just perfect for a relax and refreshing swim/snorkeling trips if you are staying at VM2.
    to get in to the cenotes you have to take a 15 mins travel on a "truck" (a little wood/steel car that goes on a small rail) a great experience that you will only live here.

    A short bus ride from Merida, Cuzama is a great, unique day trip. The rickety, donkey-drawn train car will take you down some old train tracks and stop at three beautiful cenotes along the way. Some great underground swimming in incredibly blue water.

    A antique wooden horse-drawn platform rail carts pulls you down a 200 year old rail track (which once led to a hacienda which was an old Yuca plantation) about five miles into the jungle you stop at and visit three different cenotes. These are amazing cenotes which are underground sink holes and the water is crystal clear, turquoise in color, and about 78 degrees. When the sun hits it you can see to the bottom.

Description:

Yucatán is known for their cenotes, or sinkholes. There are over 3000 cenotes in Yucatán, with only 1400 actually studied and registered. The town of Cuzamá is becoming well known for the large number of cenotes found there. If you go to the hacienda in Cuzamá, you can hire a guide who will put you on a platform buggy pulled by horses to the cenotes. The main cenotes are: Chelentún (laying down rock), Chansinic'che (tree with small ants) and Bolonchoojol (nine drops of water).
