Also known under the name of Car Wash is one of the farthest from Playa del Carmen. This cenotes is approximately 5 km to the west of Tulum on the Tulum-Coba highway.
This cenote is very open with a relatively large fauna and flora. Here we can observe water lilies throughout the Cenote well as freshwater turtles and if we are lucky we may encounter a small crocodile that has taken up residence on this site.
During the year, after heavy rains, there is formation of tannic acid red or green color in the first meters. In the bottom of the cenote (about 15 feet) the view is amazing.
The tannic acid forms a colored ceiling that contrasts greatly with the transparency of the water on the last three meters ... Beautiful pictures guaranteed!!
The entrance to the cave, upstream is very large and offers good light penetration. The cave tour is throughout the opening; again you will be able to perform amazing pictures.
Max depth: 55 feet/16 meters
Approx dive time: 50 min
Observe: light, fossils, speleothems, water lilies, tannic acid
