Services offered by the X'Weech cenote

As I mentioned, many tourist attractions in this area have a totally local atmosphere. It is an interesting way to get to know the places more authentically. Visiting these cenotes we promote community tourism, reaching our money to families who work their land. This cenote is located inside a ranch, so they took advantage to make way for the crystal clear waters.

Cenote X'Weech is a Yucatecan Mayan word that means armadillo, the animal with a prehistoric shell that lives in the area. To enter the cenote you go down comfortable stairs that take you to a small tunnel through which you walk a few meters to the stone platform. From here you have access by a wooden staircase to the cenote water. A crystalline fresh water, habitat for catfish, the black fish that we usually see in the cenotes.

The cenote space is local and rustic atmosphere, with palapas that offer shade to eat and drink. They go horseback riding, one of the distractions for children at X'Weech. There are bathrooms and showers, and the owner gives the service with sympathy and desire. On weekends they provide food service, with family prices.

WHAT TO BRING TO TOURIST CENOTES? Swimsuit and towel or pareo to dry after bath. A change of clothes to change, hat, insect repellent (use it after bathing if you stay in the area and there are insects). Do not forget the mask or visor (in many cenotes they rent, but that way you save it). You can access most of the tourist cenotes with flip flops, the closed shoe always gives you greater protection, it is my choice almost always. Booties or water shoes are not necessary to access the cenotes. Bring water, the heat squeezes a lot and you need constant hydration.
THE LAW OF THE GOOD CENOTER: To avoid contaminating the delicate water of the cenotes, do not use body creams, protectors, or repellents before entering them. Go through the shower before entering the cenote. Do not hang on the roots of the trees, touch the stalactites, or do any other idiocy that damages the place. If we learn to appreciate the natural environment the better we will treat it ..
