Canamayte Eco Park is a small park with 2 cenotes located in Riviera Maya. In Canamayte you will find a tasty restaurant and two very cool cenotes where you can enjoy your day. Very close to Tulum you find this nature getaway.

Canamayte Eco Park is known in different ways: you may know it as the Mariposa cenote or the Chen Há cenote. The place is managed by one of the most important tourist agencies in the Riviera Maya, Equinox Tours, and both cenotes are within the facilities.

I want to thank the staff because the day we visited Canamayte Eco Park it was closed for maintenance, and they let us know the place despite being closed to the public (being a large company it still says more detail on their part). That day I went to a cenote with my photographer friend Pierre and his dog Flaco. Pierre is one of the best photographers in Riviera Maya, I leave you the Pierre Viole's website in case you want to enjoy the wonderful photos he takes.

Despite being closed, they let us enter and enjoy the cenotes on our own. The pity is that we did not try the restaurant, of which we have spoken very well. NOTE: there is no access to pets, it was a special day.

HOW TO GO TO CANAMAYTE ECO PARK TULUM

The Equinox Tours agency uses Canamayte Eco Park almost exclusively for its clients, for this reason it is not such a well-known place as they live off their own clients. The good thing is that it can also be visited on its own, and that is the luck because it remains semi unknown within the cenotes of Riviera Maya to date.

There are several large agencies in Riviera Maya that use this dynamic with their clients: they manage places exclusively for their tours. In Canamayte Eco Park you will be able to enjoy two types of cenotes: one open and the other cave. The facilities of the enclosure, the attention, the restaurant and other services make it an excellent and pleasant place to spend the day.

CENOTE MARIPOSA

Cenote Mariposa is a semi-cave cenote with beautiful emerald colors. As soon as you see it, you want to swim in its waters. The photos with this background are one of those to make you envious when you are on vacation. Those instagramers eager for postcards, here you will find a good setting to show off.

The reflections of lights on its walls, the crystal clear emerald water make it an almost irresistible place. I was pleasantly surprised by its beauty. It is always a pleasure to discover new cenotes, and Cenote Mariposa did not disappoint. My friend Juanma, who is an accredited guide and diver in Riviera Maya (one of the most recommended guides that I know in that area in case you are interested in an excellent contact), discovered it for me.

CENOTE CHEN HÁ

Cenote Chen Há is a cave cenote, so you can see two different types of cenotes at Canamayte Eco Park. There are people who are a little scared to enter cave cenotes, because this is ideal because here you will feel good. It is a small cenote and very well lit, this makes it quiet for the whole family.

When we visited it, it was not illuminated, something that I like a lot because really the naturalness of the cenote spaces, I like them as they are. Pierre and Flaco had already left, and I was able to give myself the prize of bathing alone in the place after taking a photo. Moments of one that go to the backpack of the heart, it is a gift to enjoy the cenotes in company, but alone it is a luxury 😉
