Swim Cenote Tajma-Ha

Xelhá, Mexico


Added by Neonconflagrations

Cenote Tajma-Ha is a little bit off-the-beaten-path, making it a much quieter alternative to the other nearby and more developed cenotes.

This cenote is popular with divers, owing to its access to a complex underground cave system reaching a depth of about 15 meters, entering into multiple rooms. While popular amongst divers, swimmers will likely find no one else on the water's surface, so it makes for a quiet and relaxing stop.

The cenote lies in a limestone depression, with the water filling the perimeter while an island in the depression's eye has several benches and trees for shade. The water takes on a surreal light blue hue, and cave formations dot the ground and cave walls, while roots descend from the shelf above into the water.

There are no lifeguards or amenities here aside from a basic changing room and bathroom.

Visitors must first stop at the dive shop along the highway to pay their fees, before driving about 2km down a well-graded gravel road to reach the cenote.

Cenote Tajma-Ha is open daily from 8am-5pm. Admission is MX$100 per person for swimming/snorkeling. Diving is as additional rate.
