Cenote Zazil Tunich Tours

Cenote Zazil Tunich
Located in the colonial  town of Valladolid in the Yucatán, Cenote Zazil Tunich is a site of natural beauty. Here, you can admire rock formations such as the Mayan Kiss and Guardian of the Caves; learn about the nine levels of the Mayan Underworld and associated mythology; and swim in the crystalline waters of the limestone sinkhole.

The Basics
To understand the Mayan heritage of the Yucatán, a visit to Cenote Zazil Tunich is essential. Booking a ticket in advance is the only way to guarantee your spot on a tour, which is a must for time-pressed travelers; cenote tours generally include ample free time to swim in the cenote. If you’re visiting on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night, you can upgrade to a dinner package that includes a Mayan ceremony.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to Cenote Zazil Tunich is perfect for nature and history buffs.
  • Cenote Zazil Tunich requires a reservation, so book a guided tour in advance to ensure admission on the day. Tours run three times daily.
  • Visitors to the Cenote Zazil Tunich should take water shoes, towels, and biodegradable sunscreen.
  • Cenote Zazil Tunich isn’t wheelchair or stroller accessible.
 
How to Get There
Cenote Zazil Tunich is around 19 miles (30km) outside the town of Valladolid and is best reached by private vehicle. If you’re driving, head east on the Cancún/México 180 road, turning left on Calle 10 until your reach the cenote. To avoid confusing public transport routes, those without a car should travel by taxi to Cenote Zazil Tunich.
 
When to Get There
Cenote Zazil Tunich is open daily from 3pm until 8pm, making it the ideal place to cool down after a morning of exploration. It’s busiest during Mexican national holidays and at weekends, so visit in the week to beat the crowds. However, the Mayan Ceremony is only held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
 
The Cenotes of the Yucatán

Yucatán is a Swiss cheese of cenotes, many of which are open to the public. If getting to Cenote Zazil Tunich proves difficult, consider visiting Cenote Zaci in the heart of Valladolid instead. Alternatively, Cenote Lol-Ha is an incredibly deep cenote suited to strong swimmers, while Cenote Ik Kil is conveniently close to Chichen Itza and a staple of day trips to the Mayan ruin.
