Hidden Cenote, Tulum Cenote

Although they are close to the popular Tulum and you can go by public transport or bicycle, it does not mean that you will meet many people. The largest number of tourists move on organized excursions, and these cenotes are not on tourist circuits, so you can easily find yourself alone in Cenote Escondido. For those of us who appreciate the luxuries of tranquility, it is a great factor to consider.

Cenote Escondido, a few 3 kilometers south of Tulum, shares entrance with the Cenote Cristal. Each of them is located on the side of the road. The payment booth for both is in the jungle or inland side. The other side is the sea side, to understand us.

The road to the Escondido cenote runs from the main road about 2 kilometers through the jungle, and enters a mangrove area, indicating that the waters of the Caribbean are nearby. The mangrove is the catalyst and protector of the natural life in the Peninsula. The landscape of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, very close to Cenote Escondido, is very mangrove.
