Unfortunately my husband and I didn't have the opportunity to eat at this restaurant. However, jumping and swimming in Cenote Saamal was beyond amazing. It was like nothing I ever seen. The water was very fresh and clear. Do not pass by this gem!!!

Hidden away off the beaten path is a wonderful family style restaurant and site-seeing spot. Our tour guide took us there promising authentic Mexican cuisine and Selva Maya delivered "in spades"! Definitely worth the trip if you like to eat like a local.

Nope. There's not much to see underwater. Not the clearest water in the world. The beauty is all above the surface!
