Cenote Dzonotoch is one of the small local treasures that we can enjoy on the road between Tizimín and Mérida, two of the most important towns in Yucatán. Cooling in fresh water is always a success.

Mérida and Tizimín are perfectly connected by a wide and good road, in about two hours you travel the distance of 167 kilometers that separates them. On this road you have several detours, such as Izamal or Espita, two of the most beautiful towns in Yucatan.

What others Yucatan cenotes are you in the Tizimín-Valladolid area?

There are always interesting detours on the roads, I love to follow signs that I don't know where they will lead me. In this adventure I went with my dear friend Unzeta, of those few people with whom you tie without more, so it was sure success any stop on the road. We were going to Izamal when we took the detour following a white-painted stone with black letters indicating "Cenote to 700 meters." Curiosity led us to the Dzonotoch cenote, known in Spanish as El Zorro.

As always the cenotes offer a natural space of beauty, pause and observation, and without noticing it you have a smile drawn. In addition to enjoying these precious treasures that are the cenotes, doing it with people you want is luxury. There we were both swimming, watching the reflections on the walls, watching the fish pass by and hearing our laughter echoing. What else is needed to enjoy?


Another attraction of this cenote are the horseback riding they offer. A little tour for 10 pesos so that the children make their day more special. We are in a ranch area, what less than playing at being [Email protected] for a day. I found it a well prepared place to make a family meal in a natural space. It is not very large, but the facilities do their job. Oh y allow camping, another point in his favor.
