Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Cenote Palomitas with additional information or photos.

This cenote (a connection between the surface and a subterranean body of water) is very special. First, it’s one of the least known and far from other tourists routes. Second, it’s one of Mexico’s cenotes that is mostly a complete cave with two entrances, one of which leads you right down through the ceiling. The pool is filled with crystalline water surrounded by rock formations of all types. The cost to enjoy this natural wonder is very inexpensive.
