Rancho Agua Dulce is located in an area of ​​fantastic cenotes to enjoy. This ranch gives you the opportunity to know different types of cenotes, Popcorn is the star of the place.

The Agua Dulce Ranch is between the towns of Hunukú and Yalcobá, an area of ​​beautiful cenotes near Valladolid and Ek Balam. This ranch is still partially used, and you offers the possibility of knowing two magnificent cenotes, Popcorn and Fresh Water, both closed and impressive. There is also the Dzonot Ac cenote, which is a gouache (last phase of the formation of the cenotes) and some dry cave that you can visit.

The services are very complete, with restaurant in case you want to eat. There are bikes to rent and move along the paths that lead you to the different entrances of the cenotes. Very well organized

Cenote Popcorn

The fantastic Cenote Popcorn is undoubtedly the star of the Agua Dulce Ranch. Popcorn has a very simple entrance for the visitor, Agua Dulce is something a cenote that gives more respect to enter. Cenote Popcorn is easily accessible, and although it is a closed cenote it is bright and one sits in an open space. I would honestly visit both, they seemed both impressive.


Cenote Popcorn has a diameter of 50 meters and 45 meters deep, a colossal mouth of turquoise crystalline waters that get entangled in you. The cave is a joy, stalactite formations create a very captivating space. I love the feeling of reaching a cenote for the first time, when you put your head to surprise you as a child before the beauty that awaits you, and in Cenote Popcorn I was amazed, what a beautiful cenote 🙂


So far there is an organized tour, but it is not a crowded place, so if you go in safe weather you will find your lonely moments in Cenote Palomitas. It is a privilege for me to live these places in silence, a silence that magically breaks with some trill of birds, such as the splendid toh bird (momoto, watch bird) that so much likes to live near the cenotes.


Cenote Popcorn It is without a doubt one of the magical places that you can enjoy in the Yucatan Peninsula. At Rancho Agua Dulce, its owners have done a great job enabling its privileged environment so that we can have fun as children in these recreational places, gifts of nature.
