Here you will find cenotes, a lush jungle, architectural areas and, the beautiful Kaan Luum lagoon, among other attractions.
Where is the Kaan Luum Lagoon?
11 kilometers away from Tulum, heading to Felipe Carrillo Puerto is this beautiful lagoon, which you can reach by car (15 minutes) or by bicycle (30 minutes). Bike rentals are available at Orchid House if you stay with us so you can fully enjoy the natural experience of the Riviera Maya.
Kaan Luum in Mayan means “yellow earth”, a beautiful place surrounded by jungle where you can go swimming, take beautiful pictures of the multicolored landscapes and spend an unforgettable day. The color of its waters, makes Kaan Luum Lagoon an amazing place to enjoy. It varies from intense blue to light green since it has different depths, but what makes it so special is that the lake hides a cenote 82 meters deep in the center, which you can admire from the outside since access to swim is prohibited because it is too deep.
In addition to the spectacular brightness of the lake and the opportunity to take thousands of photos, you can rent a kayak to have a closer view of the cenote. There´s others sports you could practice such as diving, water sports, volleyball, yoga, and you could even fly drones to take panoramic photographs of this beautiful place.
Of course, it is forbidden to smoke, enter the lagoon while intoxicated, throw garbage and, preferably, you should avoid the use of sunscreens so as not to contaminate the water and the 100% natural environment of Kaan Luum. We sugest using biodegradable sunscreen, visors, caps or hats to protect yourself from the intense sun while exploring the place.
It should be noted that the water level in the lake is low, before reaching the cenote (which is protected from entering it) so children and adults can immerse themselves in the water without risk.
No doubt, Kaan Luum is one of the must-see places in the entire Riviera Maya, you can´t miss it on your next vacation.
