Services in the Kaan L'uum lagoon

Laguna Kaan L'uum belongs to an ejido near the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, with whom he shares these delicious colors that catch us. There are services of rustic bathrooms and a large palapa where you can consume your food. The palapa is found on the left hand side once you reach the lagoon. It makes me a great place to spend the day with family or friends.

The wooden pier that takes you into the lagoon becomes the visitor's meeting place. Sundays are the busiest day, but if you arrive early you will have this little paradise for you.

As you will see the area around the cenote is cordoned off and they prohibit swimming above: it is not dangerous and does not engulf you into the cenote, but the administrators of the Kaan L'uum lagoon prefer to save themselves the responsibility of caring for the visitor who does not know swim well.

It is a pity that site administrators do not invest in maintenance and service improvements, is somewhat neglected. Some travelers have told me this detail.
