I give you a brief introduction. We knew about the Cenote Heart of Paradise and I went to visit it as a possible stop for the private circuits that we offer. With this I already give you a small clue of the cenotes, because we like to promote community and responsible tourism with the environment.

Cenote Heart of Paradise It is managed by the local ejidatarios (they are the local owners of the land) and they have not modified the environment, as some owners do. Its regulations favor the preservation of the natural place.

The day I visited it was very tight, 10 minutes from closing. I told them that he was an accredited guide and they let me in to meet him. The photos I took brokered and do not do justice to the cenote. The place made a very good impression on me, certainly on my list to go with clients.

The place is very pleasant to spend the day. Another thing we like very much about the Corazón del Paraíso cenote is being able to observe the typical flora of the Caribbean coast, the palms and the nearby mangrove swamp form a beautiful and characteristic landscape.
