The Cenote Azul is located in Quintana Roo, on the shores of the Laguna de Bacalar. It is the best-known cenote in the southern region of this state. One of the most spectacular open cenotes in the entire Peninsula.

 If you visit Laguna de Bacalar It is a corner that I recommend without hesitation. The Blue Cenote It is only 4 kilometers from the town of Bacalar. You can get there by the coastal road Bacalar, which from the village borders the lagoon to reach the Cenote Azul. On this road you can make a stop to see some beautiful view of the lagoon.


Al Blue Cenote It happens like so many landscapes that gain in spectacularity from a bird's eye view. It happens to well-known places such as the Blue Hole in Belize, the Nasca lines in Peru, the heart of Voh in New Caledonia, which I discovered thanks to the great work of the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Sometimes it makes you want to be a bird, right?

The cenote is accessed through the restaurant which is located at the foot of the crystal blue waters. An ideal place to try some gastronomic specialty of the area, relax, swim and spend a few hours.


The locals usually approach to spend the day with the family on Sundays, so both the lagoon and the cenote usually fill up. It is nice to see Mexican families sunbathe with their coolers and snacks, from old people to grandchildren.

The depth of 90 meters of Blue Cenote it makes a candy for the submariner. It is an open cenote of circular form, where you will find vegetation and labyrinths. There are submarine centers in the area.

Diver or not, escape to enjoy this cenote, you will like it.
