    WOW. Those photos are breathtaking Jason. For real. It reminds me of some little alien planet (in a good way!)

      Those pictures are absolutely amazing! DH has told me about the Cenotes and how we have to go see them (he has been several times) and I simply can not wait!

      Darn it to BDW for giving us too many friggin' places to visit! Wish we could be an a never-ending vacation and just travel everywhere!!!

          Thank you so much for the info. Does anyone know if these places will allow photography? Maybe they charge a fee?

            I was there a month ago & wasn't charged. There was a $5 fee if you wanted to take a picture with the donkey or iguana. I was told last night that they are charging $200 per hour at one of the cenotes, but I have not confirmed that. Hopefully someone who visits the cenote soon can chime in. Ana took pictures in a cenote a few weeks ago & there wasn't a fee.

                  How beautiful! Mike and I will definitely have to look into visiting RM on our next vacation.

                  Do you think it would be a huge pain in the ass to take my dress and do an anniversary TTD? LOL

                    Like Morgan said, the one she went to did not charge her. I think it is up to the people or organization that owns the particular cenote. What may be true at one spot may not be the case at another. Aside from a small admission fee, I would imagine that most places would not charge you extra to photograph there. Some suggestions though....

                    1. Ask ahead of time if possible and get a contact name.
                    2. Offer a tip or some sort of extra money if they help you out in any way.
                    3. Respect their rules and regulations. You are a guest there and have to play by their rules. Don't try to bend them.
                    4. Respect the cenote. These places were considered sacred by the Maya and deserve respect and consideration. Don't leave any trash. Don't break, alter or change anything there.
                    5. Have fun.
