On a road trip through the Yucatan of Mexico, we decided to check out the town of Homun, known for its many cenotes. We found a guide to take us to several cenotes, and one of our favorites there was Cenote Canunchen.
This is one of the newer cenotes in the area, and I read somewhere that it opened in 2016.
We drove our rental car from Avant Car Rental, and then took a motor cart to the Cenote.
There is plenty of parking here.
There was some interesting artwork out front, and the guide mentioned that it was by a notable artist in the Yucatan.
We paid the entrance fee and headed over to the cenote. This was only $50 Mexican Pesos, which is about $2.50 USD per person.
There was a water feature out front with fish, which makes for a nice photo opportunity.
There are stairs to go down to the cenote.
There is a two-story staircase, with plenty of platform space on both levels. I don’t necessarily swim at the cenotes (my husband and kids do), and it is nice to have a spot to just relax and enjoy the surroundings.
The nice part about this cenote is that there are ziplines and platforms to jump off.
It was nice to have some different activities to do at the cenote. The cenote did get a little busy, but I would not say that it was particularly crowded. Homun is a small town, and the cenote was not crowded like the ones you might find around Tulum.
We enjoyed our time at Cenote Canunchen, and if you are a fan of cenotes, I highly recommend checking out the town of Homun.

You really do go to the best places. Every location you highlight is so beautiful and so full of culture.
Mexico in my bucket list. I really want to go there some times. Thanks for sharing with us.
What a beautiful place, wish I could visit with my family someday 🙂
All of these cenotes you visit look so unique and fun. I’d love to take my kids one day and do a trip of cenotes as we would all really enjoy it.
Nnnniiiccceeee…I would love it here, I tell you. Spending a day here will do me so much good! Thank you so much for sharing about it.
Wow, what cool pictures and love the angle of it. The cloud in the sky and the trees makes an amazing view!
All these cenotes definitely placed Mexico on my bucket list to travel to this year. All these places are so beautiful and amazing.
Your photos are beautiful and I didn’t realize that Mexico had a lot of Cenotes. It seems like there’s a ton to visit and all look so different from each other. It’s been awhile since we have been to Mexico but making a note to definitely visit a cenote the next time we do go!

Hi Marysa. I haven’t been to this specific one, but I have seen one around Tulum.
That looks like such a cool place to check out! And love that it’s only a couple of bucks.
This looks like a wonderful adventure. We sure would like to visit someday!
That sure is a good price to get into this place. I need to visit it .
Oh wow! For that price I wouldn’t mind going for a dip if I wasn’t so scared of it.. Hahahaha.
This is such an awesome and marvelous place to visit, especially with the family! A great place to create that moment that can cherish forever! We love to visit it too! Thanks and a great find!
I’d love to visit the place and explore the town. The entrance to the cenote fee is actually cheap but it leaves you with a great experience.
Wow! What a really wonderful and fantastic place to visit with the whole family! Everyone would really love to be here for sure!
Looks like an amazing place to visit. Such nice photos!
That looks so neat though this cenote looks a little scary since it’s so deep and dark!
This would be such a neat experience, I would feel slightly uneasy at first though being in a cave like that though lol. But it is beautiful and looks relaxing.
Oh wow. I would love to experience this adventure. Mexico here I come.
Looks like you really are enjoying travels at the moment and living the dream for sure x
I love Mexican cenotes. I am so curious to visit this one!
There are so many cenotes it’s amazing. I love that they are expensive to visit. I would love to visit one.
Wow! Looks like an amazing place to visit! I have a girl’s trip planned for the end of April to Mexico with my daughter! We are looking forward to it!
The place looks so inviting. Loved the artwork at the entrance.
This place looks amazing, the Artwork is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Glad you all had fun. The place looks great. I hope I get to see a cenote in person someday.
What a cool experience! I love seeing other cultures and their way of life. Love the artwork!
