Why Go?

Car Wash, also known by its Mayan name Aktun Ha, is filled with fresh water fish – Cenote Mollys – and vegetation. Entrance is easy, the cenote is good for all ages, though children and swimmers who are not as comfortable in the water should have life jackets. As a dive, this fresh water center has an open water portion with no overhead environment and a small cavern with some great formations. Cave divers also enjoy this unique location.

Snorkelers will like the openness of this cenote, divers will love the diversity with fresh water fish, algae layers, and a guided tour of the cavern.

Where Is It Located?

Just west of Tulum at approximately Km 9 on the Coba Road.

What Can You Do Here?

Great for swimming and snorkeling. Divers can arrange a trip with a local dive center to experience the cavern at this cenote. This cenote has a basic washroom, parking and an entry platform. Bring your own snorkeling equipment as rental services are not available nor is there a restaurant or a variety store for food and drinks.
