Cenote Tza Ujun Kat
One kilometer (0.6 mile) west of Cuzamá in the town of Homun, lies the Cenote Tza Ujun Kat (9 a.m.–sunset daily, US$0.30). Visited mostly by locals, it’s a large clear blue swimming hole that’s accessible by a short cement stairway.
An opening in the cavern roof allows shafts of light to beam in during the late afternoon—an inspiring view and a great photo op to boot. This is a good alternative if you want to go to a cenote but don’t have the time to take the Cenotes de Cuzamá tour.
Look for the Restaurant Bar El Familiar on the main road—the cenote is behind it.
