If you find yourself living in Mérida and wondering where to spend a weekend full of adventure, action and fun for a change, San Antonio Mulix is the spot you’re looking for!
The Cenotes of X’Batún and Dzombakal are located in San Antonio Mulix, the water of these two sinkholes is perfect for a swim all year round, as they become a refreshing refuge away from the suffocating heat.
In both of these cenotes you’ll be able to dive, snorkel and swim, let yourself enjoy the mystic waters of our mayan ancestors.
You can make the trip back and forth on the same day (since it’s about an hour away from Merida), but you can also rent a Mayan Cabin to spend the night, or a tent if you feel like camping.
Bicycles are available for rent as well and there are two restaurants where you can enjoy Yucatecan food at reasonable prices.
If you talk to the locals they’ll proudly share the story of how a famous Mexican telenovela, “Abismo de Pasión” (Abyss of Passion), was filmed there.
Don’t forget to bring food with you, although there are places where you can eat, it’s advisable to bring a snack just in case. Of course your bathing suit, as well as your camera, should be on top of the list.
Remember that sunblock and insect repellent must be rinsed off before entering the water, this absolutely vital is to protect the animals’ natural habitat.
It is important to mention that there is no public transportation, so be ready to walk a mile or two to get to the Cenotes (or you can ride a bike).
Nearby places to visit: Ruta de los Conventos, Ruta Puuc, Loltún , Hacienda Yaxcopoil, Mayapán and the Cenotes of Cuzamá.
How to get there: Head Southeast on the Mérida-Muna road, take a right in km 39. When you get to Hacienda San Antonio Mulix you’ll see a dirt road in front of you, follow that road for the next 2.3 kilometers until you reach the entrance.
Working Hours: from 7:00am to 5:00pm, everyday.
