Tour the Cuzamá Cenotes From Mérida

Experience three of the four types of cenotes that exist in Mérida! Cuzamá is interpreted as “swallow water.” This name was given by the abundance of birds (swallows) that inhabit the cenotes in the walls of the caverns.

The town of Cuzamá is a municipality in Yucatán that is located 55km from the city of Mérida; the Santa Barbara hostel is famous for its cenotes, among the most beautiful of its kind, ideal for swimming and adventure activities.

Start your adventure by being transported by an old horse-drawn vehicle, or you can experience this adventure by pedaling a bike on the path that will take you from one cenote to another. Immerse yourself in a closed, semi-closed, and open cenote (three of the four types of cenotes) and live the different climates, temperatures, and water colors that each of these cenotes has to show you.

Cenote is a term that is only used in Mexico and that comes from the Mayan word “dzonot,” which means “abyss.” They are wells of fresh water created by the erosion of soft and porous limestone, but for the Maya world, they were sources of life that provided the vital liquid, besides being an entrance to the wonders of the other world and the center of communion with the gods.

Before returning to Mérida, we will enjoy a delicious à la carte meal of varied Yucatecan dishes. Do not forget to taste the flavors that this state has for you.
