The entrances to the cenotes accelerate my biorhythm, I like to go down slowly, savoring the emotions. Despite being a small cenote, the space is beautiful, and more with swallows, roots and the entrance of overhead light (we are late, better to visit this cenote from 11 to 15 hours to see it with the beam of light going through inside).

The services are rustic. A booth at the entrance where you get your ticket and you can buy some junk food botanita (that if patatitas, cookies and other forms of food with no nutritional value that both hook).

You have showers and changing rooms. The wooden platform does not break the charm of the place, something that is always appreciated. You will have space to leave your things and bathe in peace in one of the coldest waters of Homun.
