Cenotes are another one of Mother Nature’s natural gifts to the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. They are large sinkholes filled with groundwater sometimes leading into larger cave systems. You can find several different cenote parks (both big and small) along the Mayan Riviera corridor between Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
Entrance fees range anywhere between $20-100 pesos (approximately $2-10 US/Canadian) per person and include access to at least one cenote (or sometimes several), parking and restrooms. You can also visit one of the many Eco Parks that include additional activities like zip lining. Entrance into an Eco Park usually starts at $700 pesos (around $70 US).
As photographers, cenotes offer an incredible backdrop and alternative setting to the beach. Trash The Dress sessions are very popular for both destination and local brides and grooms here in the Mayan Riviera. They offer a once-in-a-lifetime and memorable photo shoot after the wedding.
We recently spent a day exploring some of the area’s awesome cenotes to scout out locations for future shoots. We got lucky and found some breathtakingly beautiful spots!
