Cenote Zacil-Ha

Cenote Zacil-Ha (also sometimes spelled Zazil-Ha) in Tulum is a natural pool with crystal clear waters. You can’t miss this magnificent open-air cenote if you’re staying in Tulum or visiting Coba, especially if you’re visiting Tulum with kids!

This magnificent cenote, with its crystal blue water, is a must-see in the Riviera Maya. Zacil-ha is a cold and refreshing sinkhole that can help you cool off on hot days, especially after seeing the Mayan Ruins!

Cenote Zacil-Ha is located in Quintana Roo, 8 kilometers south of Tulum on Highway 109, to the Coba Ruins. It has recently been transformed into a more welcoming environment where visitors may spend an afternoon.

Swimming in Cenote Zacil-Ha

This cenote is around 10 feet deep and not particularly large, so go when there aren’t many people everywhere. As a result, Sundays are generally a terrible day to visit since families use that day off to explore cenotes. If you want to dive this cenote, you must have a certificate for open water or cavern diving. You’ll be able to explore the cavern, which is connected to a few other cenotes in Tulum, including Cenote Carwash, in this manner.

The water is deep blue at one end of the cenote. This cenote is a cave, and it is connected to other cenotes in the area. You’ll also get to observe the lovely bluebirds that flutter over the cenote all the time. The nests of hanging birds can be found in the trees. Hanging birds and yellow-feathered birds may be seen in the trees, as well as yellow-feathered birds in flight.

There are also fantastic amenities for you to enjoy with your children; we are confident that Cenote Zacil-Ha will be an unforgettable experience for you and your entire family!

How to Get to Cenote Zacil-Ha?

On the Tulum/Coba route, it’s roughly 8.5 kilometers from Coba, Tulum. It will be on the left side of the road. Keep an eye out for the sign. Because it doesn’t appear to be much, the entrance may have deceived you in the past. It’s right off the highway, and there’s plenty of room to park. You probably don’t want to go in anyhow if all the lots are taken because that indicates there are many people there and the cenote isn’t that huge.
