Puerto Morelos Cenotes Route
The route of the cenotes is part of Puerto Morelos and is a place a little “hidden” to the eyes of the people. However, it is a completely magical place of the Riviera Maya and you have to know, discover and immerse yourself in each of its cenotes and adventures that it has for you.
Where is the route of the cenotes?
The route of the cenotes, is part of Puerto Morelos and is located just 25 minutes from the city of Cancun and to get there, it is necessary to pay close attention to the detour that exists between Puerto Morelos and Poblando de Leona Vicario.
How to get to the route of the cenotes?
To get to the route of the cenotes from Cancun, you have to take federal highway 307 towards Playa del Carmen. Remember that Puerto Morelos is located halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Well, arriving to Puerto Morelos, you will notice a bridge in the distance.
As such, this bridge is a “high speed pass” to continue your way to Playa del Carmen and the low speed road (the one that does not go over the bridge), is the road to enter Puerto Morelos town or Puerto Morelos Hotel Zone.
Well, you have to take the low speed road but do not “turn” to any side to go to the town or to the Puerto Morelos zone, otherwise you have to continue a little further on, where you will notice on the right hand side a big arch that says “Ruta de los cenotes”. Well, this is the turnoff to enter the route of the cenotes of Puerto Morelos.
Cenotes of the Cenotes Route
Now that we know what the route of the cenotes is, where it is located and how to get there, let’s get to know some of the best cenotes of the place. Let’s start!
Cenote Sol y Luna
Cenote Sol y Luna is the first cenote that we will find on our way and it is a nice place to spend a whole day and afternoon with the family. The approximate access cost is 350.00 MXN and in it you will first find a small hacienda, with a restaurant and several pools, including children’s pools.
With your access to the place, you can be enjoying the sun, the lounge chairs and the pools. Or, if you go a little further in, you will find the entrance to the Sol y Luna cenote.
It is an open, green cenote with an area where you can take your best dives, enjoy the zip line or just swim in it.
It is worth mentioning that the place has lounge chairs, hammock areas (at an extra cost) and a bar to enjoy your favorite drinks. But that’s not all, because with your access you can enjoy the temazcal ceremony and visit the small animal sanctuary that the place has.
It is worth mentioning that the place also has ATV’s, and you can enjoy them at an extra cost.
Cenote Verde Lucero
Going a little further into the route of the cenotes, we will find Cenote Verde Lucero. A cenote that lives up to its name, because it has an intense green color that even allows you to see the clear reflection of the sky.
This is an open cenote and has an access cost of 100.00 MXN per person. It has small palapas with tables and chairs, as well as lounge chairs and, of course, life jackets. Like the previous one, you can enjoy swimming, diving or zip-lining.
It should be noted that the cenote is a little hidden, so it will be necessary to pay close attention to the signs on the road and when you see the one that says “verde lucero”, enter through a path that you will walk for about 5 minutes until you reach it.
This Zenote is located in the park that has the same name and is a 100% family friendly place for children and adults. In this place you can practice hiking, diving, snorkeling, as well as diving.
And if you are thinking of celebrating your wedding in a cenote, this place is perfect because you can even rent it for parties, weddings and other types of social events.
It is worth mentioning that this is an open cenote and its depth is 52 meters deep and you will be amazed by its incredible mineral formations known as “Bells of the Underworld”, stalactites that grew underwater. To observe them it is necessary to dive and have a certification that certifies that you are an expert diver, because they are at a great depth.
But that’s not all, because this place also allows you access to two other nearby cenotes called Abuelo Che Che and Las Palmas; you will also find a zip line, bicycle tours and ATV circuits.
Cenote Siete Bocas
This is a semi-open cenote and its name comes from the fact that it has seven vents, some of them connected to each other, which allows you to swim from one to another while you enjoy watching the roots of the trees fall in search of water or admire the stalactites.
It should be noted that access to this place is approximately 300.00 MXN per person and although it has bathrooms, it does not have many amenities like other places. But it is well worth visiting.
