Cenote Aktun Ha

Better known as “Car Wash”, it´s no longer used for washing taxis. :) Aktun-Ha is situated 8kms outside from Tulum on the road to Coba. With the water level just a few inches below ground level, divers find an easy entrance into the water. For Cavern divers there are upstream and and downstream dives possible. The upstream section with its large chestnut colored columns is the most popular route. You will enter the water through the roots and fallen trees which like any good fairy tail take you into a strange and different world. Looking back towards the entrance, it seems like we are underneath the clouds thanks to a small algae that lives near the surface. The light falling through the roots create an amazing light show and the large room behind these roots is beautifully decorated.
