Cenote Peba


Cenote Peba, a new cenote excursion, is one of the two cenotes that are visited on the Snorkel in Cenotes excursion. Mayan Ecotours is a relatively young company that offers responsible ecotourism and adventure options. Their goal is to show their clients the natural and cultural riches of the Yucatán in a safe, protecting-the-natural-environment-manner while giving personalized attention.

With specialized guides they practice responsible tourism. Their vision is to develop sustainable tourism options by including the Mayan people from villages that are in and around the places they visit. 
Mayan Ecotours offers scuba diving, snorkel, kayak and rappel tours with visits to haciendas, cenotes, Chichén Itzá, Izamal, Celestún, the Puuc Route, Mayapan and Uxmal.

Their new trip is called Snorkel in Cenotes (sinkholes) and includes snorkeling in two cenotes, hotel pick-up and drop-off, a bi-lingual guide (English/Spanish) who is an EMT trained rescue diver, snorkel equipment, life jacket, visit to a Mayan village where they hand-weave bags, hats, etc. in open caves, then lunch at the colonial 18th century Hacienda Ochil.

The cenote in the picture is the cenote at Peba, the second cenote on the tour. A majestic stone staircase made by the ancient Mayans allows you to enter this cenote oh-so-easily! On the stone walls of the cenote you will see seashell fossils. They will surely get you thinking as to how they got there being so far inland! Snorkeling in the refreshing, crystalline waters will certainly be a highlight of your trip to Yucatán. If you are unsure of your snorkeling skills, the guides are very helpful and will even hold your hand.

The first cenote you will visit is the larger cenote Kankiriche. Entrance into this cenote is down a metal ladder. Once again, the crystalline waters will make your snorkeling and swimming time so special. 
For this tour, remember to take your bathing suit, towel and camera. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

This spectacular trip includes everything except beverages at the Hacienda Ochil. Visit www.mayanecotours.com and click on cenotes.

Can you please tell me what the cost for the entrance fees for these cenotes? We do not need the extras offered by eco tours.

What is the closest big city? Merida?
We will be in Chichen Itza area and Merida, what city is closest? Can we take a mini-van, inexpensive bus there? We are staying at Yucatna Mayan Retreat near Piste.

You would need to contact Connie Leal at Mayan Ecotours to see if these cenotes are accessible without being on a tour. www.mayanecotours.com The cenote is close to Merida.
