It's a turtle sanctuary, restricted working hours from 8 to 5 , beautiful cenote next to the beach ..... admission is a donation for the park, perfect spot if you are going to Coba or tulum ruins.

Simple and undeveloped. Beautiful beach. Locals and expats living in the area are the usual people who find their way to this quiet place. FYI, this year there has been a lot of seaweed washing up onto the shore.
