Cenote Multum-Ha: What to Expect

A visit to Cenote Multum-Ha is a must while on the Yucatan Peninsula. If you’re visiting the nearby Coba ruins, then a dip in Cenote Multum-Ha is the perfect way to cool off.

There’s no better way to cool off in a hot Mexico summer than with a trip to a cenote. We visited after our tour of the Coba pyramid ruins, and it was so refreshing! Dive into the crystal clear waters of Cenote Multum-Ha in my guide.

Swimming in Cenote Multum-Ha

Cenote Multum-Ha is a freshwater sinkhole in the jungle about a 15 minute drive from the Coba pyramid ruins in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

To reach the cenote, we had to go down a 60 foot spiral staircase. The opening is marked only by a small hole in the ground. Since there is not a large opening, the inside of the cave is hot and humid. But don’t worry, the water temperature is always a refreshing 77 degrees Fahrenheit.

A wooden platform juts out into crystal clear water with stairs leading into the water. You can also jump into the water from the wooden platform.

Ropes span the cave for you to hold on to while you swim. This is very useful because the cenote ranges from 20 to 55 feet deep.

Since we were a small group in our tiny van, we had the place all to ourselves until the larger tour groups arrived.

The cenote can get pretty crowded during the day, especially on weekends. If you want to avoid the crowds, consider vising early in the morning during the week.

This was one of the best swimming experiences I’ve ever had. The water was so clear and fresh and cool. I loved floating around on my back staring up at the cave ceiling.
