Boca del Puma Cenote

Boca del Puma is the ideal destination to explore natural beauty in the midst of the jungle and then cool off in the crystal-clear waters of its enigmatic cenote sinkholes.

At km 16 of the Cenote Route in Quintana Roo lies Boca del Puma, hosting two spectacular sinkholes with distinctive characteristics that give them unique personalities. Discover them!

Strategically situated, Boca del Puma is west of Playa del Carmen, nestled in the heart of Quintana Roo’s jungle. If you seek to escape the hustle and bustle of large hotel zones, this small paradise is highly recommended.

First Cenote 

Though talked about as a single cenote, it’s actually two. To access the first, descend the stairs leading you through narrow and broad arches directly to the main pool, which reaches a depth of 66 feet underwater. 

Exploring it reveals narrow paths connecting various spaces until you reach a section where light filters through a hole in the ceiling. During the rainy season, this hole allows water levels to rise, filtering through limestone walls, shaping stunning stalactites and stalagmites. In this section, the water can reach depths of 230 to 246 feet.

Second Cenote 

The second attraction is an open cenote, perfect for basking in the sunlight and cooling off in its waters. You can dive from platforms or plunge in using the small swing-like zip line.
