Cenote Taak Bi ha is one of the most beautiful cenotes in Riviera Maya. Very close to the well-known Dos Ojos cenote, we find this treasure of crystalline waters that captivates you instantly.
A few months ago I saw a photo of the Taak Bi Ha cenote and immediately wanted to meet it. I wrote it down on my list of next places to visit, a list that grows but luckily we are also erasing many wishes. We are excited to get to know the area, this curiosity has no limit.
Researching on the internet I was able to see more photos of the cenote and I wrote on my head map how to go. The information was somewhat confusing, but I managed to locate it. The issue is that there is another cenote called Tak Be Ha that confuses a bit, the use of different names and that the Taak Bi Ha cenote is not located on Google Maps creates some confusion.
So that you can enjoy the place we are going to give precise information to guide you to this wonder.

What few can imagine is that next to the famous Dos Ojos we find this treasure of Taak Bi Ha meaning hidden water in Mayan language.
HOW TO GO BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT TO CENOTE TAAK BI HA
The buses that leave you at the entrance to Dos Ojos Park leave from Playa del Carmen and Tulum. They are the ones who travel the federal highway 307 that runs parallel to the Caribbean coast. It is easy to travel this public highway in Mayan Riviera by public transport, where all-inclusive hotels are located.
From the general entrance to Dos Ojos Park there are 3 kilometers by shaded dirt road to the Taak Bi Ha cenote. You can cover this distance on foot or by taxi from the site.
- WALKING: if you are going to walk take water and protect yourself from the sun. Despite the road being shady, it is very hot and can give you a heat stroke. Follow the advice please. Cars kick up a lot of dust when they pass.
- BY SITE TAXI: Full taxi is 25 pesos per person and each way.
CENOTE TAAK BI HA PRICE 2022
The entrance to the Taak Bi ha cenote is not done when entering the Dos Ojos park, but in Taak Bi ha itself. So from the park barrier you must go without prior payment to the Taak bi Ha cenote, where you will pay your entrance fee.
The price of the Taak Bi Ha cenote is 350 pesos per person
You have the option of visiting the cenote with a local guide, basically to do a small snorkeling circuit. With guide the price is 400 pesos per person. The guide will swim with you, inform you and give you confidence inside the cenote if you need it.
The cenote is absolutely crystal clear and is very well located. For a better experience you can take your mask or visor, just as if you have a submersible lamp. They rent equipment there.
CENOTE TAAK BI HA OR CENOTE TAK BE HA
Remember what we saw at the beginning about the name confusion. Both cenotes exist and are located at different points. The only one that is located on Google Maps is the Tak Be Ha cenote and several are confused with the address. The Tak be Ha cenote cannot be visited as it is not open to the public.
With the information we give you I think it is clear where to go and how. Any questions you know you have the comments to try to support you.
CENOTE TAAK BI HA ASSESSMENT
The natural beauty of the place is incredible, this cenote with crystal clear waters is very beautiful. It is one of the few cave cenotes that you can see on the Caribbean coast, where open cenotes are more common. Taak Bi Ha conserves bats, an indicator of the good health of the local environment (bats do absolutely nothing, in case you're wondering).
We were not told before entering that we had to go through the shower. Even if they don't tell you at the entrances to the cenotes, make it a habit to shower before entering any cenote.
The beautiful wooden platform was changed in 2022 for a cement one, so for us it has lost part of its charm. A pity the change, the cement in natural places we believe that it does not favor the natural environment.

We usually say that for us being able to enjoy the places with the least number of people is an important factor. Evidently in the touristy Riviera Maya the matter is a bit complicated. But there are always doors to desire, so we give you some advice to visit Taak Bi Ha with ease: go at 8:30 in the morning, at that time hardly any divers go. You will have a quiet hour in the place.
In the cenotes it is important to choose the best time of natural light to visit them, the light totally changes the environment. The good thing about the place is that being a cave and having no natural light, it is artificially lit. This means that there is no best time of day to visit, they are all the same. The lighting of the cenote makes it an excellent highlight of the site, and the lights are friendly to the environment.
For us it is one of the best cenotes in the Riviera Maya, without a doubt.
