If you're into camping and living in a laid back community I think you'd love this place. There's yoga, a shared kitchen, and a beautiful little Cenote right on the property. The owner Galia is accomodating and very kind. She was even able to refund us for the last day that we decided not to stay, but perhaps that only...

We spent 3 nights at the wonderful campground and loved every moment. The campground is clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen and dry privies are kept very clean. The location is perfect. It is just across the street from one of the best beaches I have seen. Plus you can start your day with a swim in the beautiful cenote...

I am just back from spending two weeks at Cenote Encantado. I also stayed there two years ago! While I enjoyed both visits they were entirely different. For, Cenote Encantado is a shifting place, which requires openness and fluidity to fully reap its benefits. While the owner, Galia and her fierce dedication to her vision, and the site itself (...

Cenote encantado was a very nice and chill place to stay with my group. They were very welcoming and friendly even though we arrived one night early. There is a beautiful cenote and hammocks to relax in. You must provide most of your own food and it is a good hour walk to the beach.

My Two friend had camped here a week ago and wanted to return. The staff were very helpful and easygoing. The property is clean and maintained.

It is a magical experience to be at one with nature and the simplicity this type of vacation offers. This is not for stuffy folks (or is it??) .. a serene oasis for the open minded. The staff is amazing. The camp ground is inviting, sitting right on a cenote that can be explored by swimming, boating or diving. It...

Thank you so much for your beautiful review. We love so much our place, we have build little by little with so much love, always taking care of trees and animals that live there like iguanas and crabs that we feel honored to cohabit with them, respecting them and taking care of them. This is a simple place to show...

I'm not going to lie - when I first showed up at Cenote Encantado my first thought was "Oh no what have I gotten into". Heed my warning - if "back to nature" "good vibes" and the "simple" life does not sound appealing to you stear clear - this will most likely not be your cup of tea. But, if...

Our place is a different experience than a fancy hotel for sure. We really like for people to live a nature experience and learning how is possible to live in a simple way, modern life is taking us away from understanding how much we can enjoy without luxury. Here the luxury is nature, and our own capacity for wonder and...

I stayed one week with My boyfriend over there. I very recomand this camping hostel! The atmosphere was amazing, the people over there were very polite, friendly, open hearted and uncomplicated! The moscito-protection in the tents work pretty well. You'll have direct entrance to the cenote and can join a yoga or meditation class! I loved, that it is outside...

The most shocking thing about this place is that you must pay in advance for something you never have seen before and your money is practically non-refundable. That raises some serious red flags. Even a five-star hotel has clear refund policies. Also the service is far from ideal, having arrived after hours and not finding anyone to receive us we...

$20/person to stay within a campground with access to a cenote on the grounds. The cost pays for a tent and bed which is set up for you (no camping gear needed) and they have a communal kitchen available for use. It's a cheap way to stay if you don't mind a more rustic visit. They provide electricity (& wifi)...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cenote Encantado "Enchanted Cenote" is a getaway to peace. Our initiative is rooted in the concept and daily practice of activities which compliment the environment. It is a concept which provides us with physical, mental and spiritual development. For us, being ecology oriented isn't just a trend or some scheme to attract green-minded visitors. We think that loving and protecting the environment is a way of life. For this reason it is our priority to share this consciousness to the furthest extent of our abilities. We actively look for people who can enlighten us with new ideas and make this magical place a center of relationships and contacts, which visitors can use as a mechanism to go forward with their own new alternative network. ... more   less

“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.”
