“Tamcach Ha well worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

A beautiful domed cenote, Easy stairs from ground level, easy in and out of the water, and there was just one other family present. Jumping platforms for those who like their heart to pump faster. Water not nearly as cold as many claim.

“For a water person it made the Coba Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Great swim in a wonderful cenote. It did hnot however have the jungle vines like others I visisted.
I would swim in every cenote I coule. The thing too know about this one is the steps are steep compared to others I visited. Great trip...

“Tamcach-Ha a great cenote after visiting Coba Ruins.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

After riding our bikes around the Coba ruins and getting very hot, we planned to stop by a cenote to cool down. We got a taxi driver to drive us over (a few miles away) to Tamcach-Ha and Choo-Ha which are right next to each other. The taxi driver waited for us which was necessary. (There's no traffic going by) We made our decent down into the underground cenotes and were in awe of the Tamcach-Ha. Water was so blue, clean and refreshing. Plus it has two jump off points that are rather high. The other cenote was Choo-Ha was interesting looking but not really a must see. It's less water and not as deep. These cenotes were 5 dollars each. There was a guy selling coconuts to drink. (that's all that was sold there) There are bathrooms, showers and changing rooms. We made a video of this experience:

“Unique experience and beautiful water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

After visiting the Coba ruins, I stopped by Cenote Tamcach-Ha for a cool-down swim. It is a very unique place, fully underground with stunningly clear water. There are also two diving platforms if you're brave enough to jump (I did - it's safe since the water is actually really deep). The water temperature was perfect for cooling down on a hot day and it was so nice just to float in the cool water by myself. Because of the location, it is not nearly as busy as some of the cenotes closer to Tulum and many of the visitors are locals. There are two other cenotes nearby and admission is 45 pesos for one (about $4), 70 pesos for two, and 100 pesos for all three
