      I have a question Morgan... In the first post you said it was 48 pesos entrance fee and in the review you said it was 480 pesos... I just wanted to clarify that. I'm pretty sure its only 48?

          Just an FYI folks..

          These cenotes are on private land and their land owners have awaken to the commercialization to their property and are charging photographers $200 per hour, specifically this cenote Morgan mentions.



          cheers!

            I'll update this in my post. I was not aware. No one there said anything to us when we walked in or as we walked around the area.

            Hi tlomlad: did you end up doing a TTD session at a cenote? I am getting married in April and my photog has an underwater casing for his camera now! I'm so excited. Do you have any suggestions for some great cenotes?

              We rented vans from Sinal Tours too. I was so happy to treat our guests to this. Everyone had a great time.

              When we arrived at Coba, we didn't know what to expect... we ended up getting two tour guides for our group of 40. The 2 - 45 minute tours were $90 USD total. It wasn't necessary, but everyone really enjoyed hearing about the history. Almost everyone walked to the other end to climb the ruin (instead of renting bikes), and it wasn't too far of a walk.

              Afterwards, the Sinal tour guys offered to take us to a Cenote or Tulum but everyone in our group was tired and ready to go home. So we left the Catalonia at 9 am, did the 45-min tour and climbed the cenote and arrived back to the hotel around 2 pm.

              Everyone had a great time and it was such a neat experience to climb to the top. I would definitely do it again!

              Also, I'm not sure about the bikes/bike taxi prices but it's now 51 pesos to enter. The front desk exchanged everyone's money. We paid the sinal tour guys the same amount as Morgan. They were nice and Fernando called us before the trip to confirm everything.
