Cenote Multum Ha is an underground sink hole or cenote that is situated right in the heart of a thick, lush jungle within Coba in Quintana Roo. It is within a 10-minute drive from the village of Coba, which is also a famous tourist attraction due to its archaeological and cultural ruins.

When you visit this cenote, you can expect a cool and refreshing swimming hole that provides an escape from the Mexican heat. It is a great place to unwind and enjoy a relaxing swim due to the crystal clear and cool water. You can explore one or all of the three cenotes within the area during your visit.

The cenote is a great place to visit any time of the year, but the perfect conditions are from the months of April to June. During this time, the temperature ranges from 23 to 25 degrees Celsius. You will only be paying for the cenotes that you want to visit in and at a price of 55 Pesos, it is very affordable.

The swimming hole can provide depths of up to 18 meters. While not as deep as the other cenotes in Mexico, it has plenty of beauty to impress anyone who decides to visit. It is a true wonder of nature with its impressive caverns and crystal clear, blue waters. It is a great way to feel like you are re-living the Mayan underworld.
