    A cenote tourism, beautiful but too frequent in the summer. Access to the sea across the national road is more pleasant to swim among colorful fish.

    On one side of the road is the sea and on the other hand, the Cueva de los peces. We snorkeled quite a short time in the Lake, but found it not particularly interesting, and therefore went over to the other side of the road to snorkel from the rock-covered shore. Here was the water completely clear with lots of beautiful, brightly colored fish-a super good experience:-)

    A good experience. A good place, but it should be better marketed. Something dirty and noisy and lost the enjoyment to the fullest of its wonders. A must-see in the Ciénaga de Zapata. A better exploitation is due to value.

    The cave looks really nice. I dived in the sea, it was beautiful. Lots of corals and fishes.

    an amazing heaven includes a cave and a sea wall. There is an underwater cave the depth is about 70 meters, the water on the surface is not that much salty but by going through the cave the rate of salt is getting more because the cace is connected to the sea. Also you can sea some kind of fishes and really big cave shrimp. I should add I went through the cave with Scub diving equipment a couple of months ago, it was one my best experience around the world really . Don't forget there is a nice beach with the coral wall also, by passing the wall the depth will be more than 400 meters and the visibility is more than 30 meters also.

    Great spot to go Snorkeling and relax on a hot day. The water is clear and you can see all type of little fishes: rainbow fish and blue fish. On one side is snorkeling and on the other side is a small water cave that you can swim in as well.
