Description
This project is the fruit of an ongoing labor of love. The camping village is in a pristine jungle setting conveniently located between a wide open Cenote, the mangrove and the powdery white sand of Tulum's More renowned turquoise Caribbean Sea. A place where you can find yourself in peace and be amazed by the natural wonders that abound. Provide yourself with the opportunity to mingle and share with like-minded travelers . The founding principle on which this encampment is based, is one of low impact occupation of the land. The long term goal is to form the kernel of a visionary utopia. Let us host you within this eclectic space where wisdom is joyfully experienced. Join up with seekers that create new forms of expression. Welcome to the jungle! Less

Galia, the owner, is a really gentle and nice person, interesting and outgoingly hospitable. Her manager, Martin, was also nice and helpful. Galia gave us a tour and was very available for anything we needed. The campground is "encantado," with artsy sign, lovely little pathway

Sorry for the inconvenience, we now have a rechargeable electric fan for rent and hopefully soon will have many more available. Indeed from November till April the use of a fan isn´t necessary. Thank you for your nice comments, we look forward to host you and your beautiful family again soon. Kind regards, Galia.

We visited the cenote only of this place and after visiting several ones in Tulum this one was the most deceiving. It was refreshing to swim in, but it really looks like a small lake. There is some decks all around with people drinking and camping which is fine if it's your thing

Deceiving is a wrong word in this instance, unexpected would be more fitting. For everyone's information, Cenotes are numbered by the hundred of thousands in the Yucatan peninsula and they come in all shape and sizes. This Cenote is big, yes, and its connected to one of the hugest underground hubs of this region, which is now considered part and parcel of the largest singular aquifer system in the world. The salty and sweet water mix so you can open your eyes inside comfortably and admire the beautiful colors and sun rays that reflect on the bottom. Our campground shares the banks of this cenote with other resort type operations, we do not sell alcohol or encourage it's use, we only forbid the entry of glass containers to prevent injuries. Next time you visit, 800 m. pass our campsite, you will find the arch portal of the Sian Kaan, a world class natural preserve, where resort type operations are forbidden, to go there you need a jeep and to afford admission to this 100 km long wilderness area. If you go to swim anywhere in there be aware that the laguna is so immense that it is home to dolphins and big caimans and there you will definitely not meet anyone drunk or a deck to stand on for that matter. Every day is different, some days there is no one, and you have it all for yourself.

Wow thank you so much Galia and Martin and all the beautiful volunteers! Cenote Encantado is hands on the best place in Tulum for reconnecting with oneself and nature. First and foremost, the powerful Cenote which is what kept me staying from 5 days to almost a whole month. The w

This place was a joke! We are 3 women in our mid-thirties and have traveled extensively the world, we're laid back and absolutely fine with casual campgrounds. That said we had an awful stay! The campground prides itself of yoga, self-care and meditation but we found absolutely n

Hello, I´m Galia the owner of Cenote Encantado.. I´m so sorry your experience was not what you expected, in the following I will response to your aforementioned grievances: First thing first, to paraphrase our website : during high season there are possible activities in the yoga meditation space, our yoga is for personal practice and we provide free yoga mats for our guests to that effect. Secondly Martin, my manager wasn't hallucinating when he was awoken at 5:30 AM by 3 guests who couldn't get Tulum cab that were confirmed prior. Our guests were provided with the whats app number of the taxi cooperative of Tulum. It is not our responsibility if the cab doesn't show up, so it seems, asking for a taxi ride directly to the airport runs on better odds in that kind circumstance, i guess our guests could not afford the services of a reputable airport shuttle service that was also offered to them. That said, my manager took upon himself to drive these commandeering desperate guests in the middle of the night, so that they could make their flight, he did so for a meager $180 pesos, that's what they coughed up, at first they didn't even want to pay him and then they reconsidered and gave him the standard cab fare, as if he was responsible for their failed attempt at getting at proper transportation service at 5am. These ungrateful guests took their anger on my exhausted manager, even complaining bitterly about his driving, when they were the ones who where already late to catch their plane. By the way, you cannot be high on drugs when you just got up in the middle of your night's sleep and a party of 3 with luggage makes you drive like crazy for next to no money so that they can make their flight on budget?! Which they did, at our expense, they certainly did. Everyone who vacations in high season (January early Feb.) in Tulum knows that it is a resort area with people partying all the time. If a guest needs, absolute peace & quiet we recommend a stay at an ashram of their choosing far from any resort area. Cenote Encantado Tulum Tent-Lodge campground carters to open minded people who are pursuing their happiness without ruining it for others, when a guests has an issue with that, we offer a refund on the spot but in this case, no issues were raised during the course of their stay, I know that for a fact because I'm in constant communication with my manager and volunteer staff, I have revised the whats apps of the period these guests where present and no texts whatsoever give pretense to their unwieldy claims was ever substantiated, neither by manager or my numerous volunteers or the guests on premise about any kind of displeasure whatsoever. The guests did have my contact info because you cannot confirm a reservation without having been in direct contact with me personally just beforehand, why was I never made aware? Finally, I find your comment totally disrespectful and derogatory, if someone should sue it would be me for slander, my manager's conduct was exemplary in the circumstance, i stand by him, not because he's was boyfriend in the circumstance, but for his fortitude in adversity, thanks to his unwavering support our guests can now enjoy 2 new flush toilets, 3 additional hot showers, not to mention the flourishing, abundant garden spaces and humedals he's created with the concourse of so many valiant volunteers. To conclude on a positive note, me and all staff thank you anyway, for your stay, you gave us the opportunity to make a few things clear to people traveling on a tight budget, to Tulum.

This place is certainly laid back and is a great affordable option if you want to be near the beach. However, it is very basic. If you want back to nature, this is perfect. If you like you're home comforts, it won't be for you.

You stay in comfortable tents which comprise of a

Well we are not exactly on a back-to-nature trip, we'd rather affirm that nature is true luxury and that our tent lodging campground we make everything easier for you to appreciate what nature has in store for you. In general, our guests really appreciate the quasi glamping setting we offer, for a fraction of the price of the ladder, the splendid isolation this concept entails, even if we are off-the-grid we provide an almost fully equipped communal kitchen, stand-up ice boxes, all you can drink water, 2 brand new flush toilets, and yes 3 out our 4 hot showers don't have a roof, but who needs a roof when you are in paradise? We provide electricity from 18:30 to midnight, minimum, we often run until half past or even 1 AM oftentimes, that's at least 6 hours and not 3, unless you check-in at 9 pm this is a non issue. (wifi from 10.00 am till midnighht) Our cenote waters aren't stagnant at all, our lake sized cenote, is connected to one of the hugest underground hubs of this region, which is now considered part and parcel of the largest singular aquifer system in the world. Yes it does get hot, from May to October, the only relief we can get from the warmth in that time of the year is a cold water shower, which is very enjoyable activity to experience under the starry sky and our coconut trees. We are always improving our offering and thanks to our volunteers, for us it's not only about service and commerce but actually about natural conservancy and the promotion of the natural realm of things. Let us thank you for your contribution to the enhancement of means and ways to inhabit the wilderness before it is found undesirable because of lack of trying...

"You will sleep in a comfortable mattress inside a tent"
"Really nice for a campground"
"Having Wi-Fi for just part of the day is something my grandma would do to punish me."
"the double tents are much bigger than those designed for 1 person. even if you are traveling by yourself, it might be worth spending double ($30 total per night) for a double tent for the extra space."
