Aktun Ha

On the highway to Coba, Cenote “Aktun Ha” used to be known as “Car Wash”, because of taxi drivers that would do so in it’s parking lot. It is really outlandish when in rain season, it gets a hue of tannic acid, making everything look reddish. Or in summer when it all looks green because of the algae bloom at the surface. It’s also common to see turtles taking the sun on logs by the shore.
