In the area near the archaeological zone of Cobá, we find several cenotes. The visit to Cobá complemented with a bath in the Multum Há cenote, is ideal in this area so rich in nature.

The town of Cobá It is located between the Cobá and Macanxoc lagoon, at the foot of the archaeological zone of Cobá. This area is full of charm, more and more travelers decide to explore this area. In the parking lot of the ruins and in the town they propose you to visit cenotes: the most offered pack is a visit to three cenotes: the Multum Ha, Tamcach Ha and the Choo Ha, each one at 100 pesos. There are several more in the area, the cenotes of the town of Saint John of God they are also wonderful. If you stay in Cobá, one option is to rent a bike and go cenote 🙂

Cenote Multum Há

El cenote Multun-Ha (mound under water in Spanish), it is reputed to be one of the most beautiful, although I always say that this competition is worthless in the face of the magic of all the cenotes.

It is spelled correctly Multun-Há, but it is known as Multum Há, so I write it both ways

After going down 18 meters down some wooden stairs You arrive at a platform built under the immense vault illustrated by hundreds of stalactites. Of course, the Multun-Há cenote is magical.

Bathing in these places is revitalizing, a luxury available to everyone. Make yourself this gift, enjoy the bath in cenotes. It is difficult not to succumb to the crystalline waters of these underground rivers that run slowly under the soil of the Peninsula. A mask gives you beautiful visions.

The place is very well cared for, one of the few cenotes that I have seen with the obligation on the part of the administration to shower before bathing in the cenote. This implies the consciousness of the Mayans who administer the Cenote Multun Ha of preserving its natural treasures.

Cenote water is very delicate, too polluted for what is considered optimal. So let's be aware and whenever we go to bathe in cenotes, we take a shower before. Thus we avoid contaminating the creams and other potingues that we carry on our skin.

HOW TO GET IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION? Public transportation to these cenotes is not very frequent. To the town of Cobá Collective transport arrives from Tulum and Valladolid. ADO It has a bus that arrives from Playa del Carmen and Tulum. You can get to the cenotes by taxi. If you go cycling it is a good ride of about 6 kilometers.
WHAT TO BRING?  Light and light clothing, hat, insect repellent, sunscreen (use it after bathing), closed and comfortable shoes to protect you from insect bites, some water is always good. Swimsuit and a towel or sarong to dry off after bathing. It is a good option to wear a diving mask to better appreciate the place.
THE LAW OF THE GOOD CENOTERO: To avoid contaminating the delicate water of the cenotes, do not use body creams, or protectors, or repellents before entering them. Do not hang from the roots of the trees or touch the stalactites or do any other idiocy that damages the place.
