Yalahau Lagoon, Holbox Island

3.7
#2 of 6 in Parks in Holbox Island
Swim in a cenote at Yalahau Lagoon, where you can actually observe water coming out of the ground to make the pool. The crystal-clear water only makes it easier to see straight to the bottom, or traverse the wooden walkway that surrounds the lagoon for views and photo opportunities. This site is only reachable by boat; try to visit in the morning when dolphins gather here to eat. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Holbox Island holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yalahau Lagoon and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Don't expect too much from this cenote. For those who know the cenotes from Cancun to Tulum this one does not even come close . It is a well in the middle of the mangrove and without structure (if they say they have breakfast and etc do not believe) has a stall selling snacks and soft drinks

  • You should go to this lagoon, even it is crowded, the water is cold and sweet! Tours are cheap, and it is worth it! Take your towel and your camera to take a lot of pictures!  more »
