Trip Report Cenotes of Homún, south of Mérida

Since I had posted a request for info on the cenotes of Homún, I wanted to post an update of our actual experience. We visited the cenotes of Homún during the first week of September 2017, leaving from Mérida. The colectivos to Homún depart from Calle 67 between 50 and 52. Fare was MX30 pp each way. Tell the driver you are visiting the cenotes and he will let you off at the edge of town opposite the cemetery. A guide station is located there. We were approached and welcomed by 'Hercules' who offered to take us on his tricked-out mototaxi to three cenotes for MX300 I had researched the cenotes ahead of time and came prepared with a written list of the three we wanted to visit. I gave him the list and we set off in the mototaxi, riding through town and on the highway to visit Baklik, Yax Bakaltun, and Santa Rosa. There was a bugger-up on the last one because we had asked for Santa Maria. Not sure why but we went to Santa Rosa instead and didn't realize it until we had descended ladder. Oh well, it was a nice cenote as well. The first two cenotes charged MX30 pp and Santa Rosa was MX35 pp. Santa Rosa was more developed -- a restaurant, a "Maya village" display -- and apparently is a cruise ship excursion option. Thankfully we arrived after the cruisers had visited and had moved on to other activities at the site. After the last cenote, Hercules took us back to the center of Homún where the colectivos depart for Mérida. The ride back to the city was a memorable one as our van contained one driver, sixteen passengers, and two or three chickens (in a box).

We had such a fun day!
