Homún is from the towns near Mérida with a good number of tourist cenotes. Cenote Santa Rosa is the most comfortable to visit thanks to the facilities that have been built for visitors.
Around the Santa Rosa cenote they have built a tourist hostel with a comfortable and spacious restaurant, changers and other basic services, a shopping area for crafts y cabins to stay. These facilities make some visitors to Homun they opt for the visit to the Santa Rosa cenote, where they find a comfortable space and ready to receive groups. The pool, of course, is the Santa Rosa cenote itself.
When I visit Homun I did not go with a reservation of accommodation, I had an idea of where to sleep, but I like to choose along the way. Upon arrival I saw that cabins were rented in the cenote Santa Rosa, and I liked the idea of waking up early and being the only visitor to the place. These are the advantages of sleeping in places like the Suytun, Ik kil or camping in the Yokdzonot cenote or the Yaxcabaltun. Although they open access to these cenotes between 9 and 10, if you stay in them, they always have flexibility towards their customers.
And that I did, visit the Santa Rosa cenote Very early in the most absolute privacy, a vice this of having cenotes for one. It is a cave cenote, with little light, and they have it illuminated with purple colors. Before traveling to Homun I had seen pictures of the cenote, and I threw a lot of light back in the nightclub inside, it is not a style that catches my attention, everyone likes it. Those who already know me know that I am a very easy soul with the cenotes, and the Santa Rosa captivated me because of the joy I had for more than an hour taking my photos there alone.
In the Santa Rosa cenote you find 10 cabins where to sleep, some made in the traditional Mayan style, and the new ones made of concrete block (cement). The treatment received and the kindness of the workers and watchmen (caretakers) of the place was great, and that helps in the trips.
The crystal clear water, the natural beauty of the formations and the facilities inside and outside the Santa Rosa cenote, make it an ideal place for all visits. In addition to the extensive facilities in the cenote, they manage El Cenote Restaurant, on the road that passes through Homún. Undoubtedly the owner of the project is a person with desire to improve and please the visitor, something that is appreciated.
I wish you the best of luck in your project, and you traveler who enjoy this great Cenote of Homún.
