Valladolid, Mexico

Swim in Cenote Oxman

Originally added by Neonconflagrations

​Cenote Oxman lies 8 kilometers from the center of Valladolid, and it has that perfect combination of exceptional beauty while being off the beaten path for visitors.

The cenote is part of the Hacienda San Lorenzo Oxman complex, a center that as of now is still relatively small but clearly aiming for growth in the near future, with bars, a pool lounge area, and campground all present and active construction going on. However, until the tour busses come flooding in, Cenote Oxman is surreally beautiful, large, and has a jumping platform with a rope swing where visitors can launch themselves into the bright blue waters below. Roots from the trees above stretch into the water, suspended in thick clusters at the pool's surface.

Currently, Cenote Oxman is a destination for those looking for a less commercialized swimming experience in the Valladolid area. And though the hacienda is in the process of changing that, for the time being this remains one of the best in the area. Life jackets are provided at no charge. Cenote Oxman is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is MX$80 or MX$150, which includes a $150 credit for food or drinks.
