About of

Destination | attraction:
Manatee Cenote or Cenote House
Quintana Roo


Near the coast an immense ecosystem of mangroves develops, in some parts sprout water eyes (springs) that fill the spaces with fresh water.

This place is not exactly a cenote since it does not have characteristics similar to an underground cavern, but many consider it for its tunnels and caves under the mangrove.

The mangroves are very special, the organisms of these ecosystems adapted to an environment of fresh and salt water at the same time.

This cenote is an excellent place to observe the biodiversity that exists in the mangroves; algae, rock formations, various fish, birds and crustaceans.

This cenote is very close to the sea and for that reason its water is brackish, allowing the life of many marine and freshwater organisms, it is possible to observe small crocodiles, a great variety of fish and birds.

It is possible to do cave diving in the tunnels that extend below the mangrove (service hired in diving agencies), in the place it is possible to rent life vests, kayaks for a drier ride and also paddle boards.


This destination is between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, we recommend visiting it as part of another route.
