The caves and cenotes of Santa María are located in Homun, just 3 blocks from the cemetery on 26 x 19 street.
The cost of access per person is $ 20 MX pesos and is attended by the owners of the house where the cave and cenote are located.
The entrance to the cave is rustic and rugged, so we recommend that you be very careful when descending as it is full of stones. Once you descend walking about 4 meters deep, you will see the vaults of the cave that are duly illuminated to have sufficient visibility.
There are stalactites and stalagmites that have been formed for hundreds of years as well as large rocks, when advancing in the grotto you will reach a part of the path that is flooded and has a depth of up to 70 cm, tread carefully as there are some stones at the bottom and keep going until you reach a part where the rock becomes narrow and the path divides in two, it does not matter which one you choose anyway you will arrive at the same place.
When leaving this slightly narrow space you will see how the stalactites and stalagmites emerge again filling almost the entire space, passing the rock you will see the cenote of crystalline waters, in this place you can swim and the water is not very deep in some parts it has up to about 2 meters deep but there are vaults where it is deeper in such a way that the route would have to be completed by diving.
Don't forget to take your souvenir photo, especially in tight, water-filled spaces.
