Visit Chikin Ha in 2024

Chikin Ha is part of a park that features a series of cenotes—natural sinkholes resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock, revealing the groundwater underneath. It is located in the Riviera Maya, close to Puerto Aventuras. This park comprises three main cenotes: Chikin Ha, which is the first and largest, Ta'ak Bil-Ha, also known as the "hidden cenote," and X'tabay. Visitors to Chikin Ha can indulge in a variety of activities such as guided tours, snorkeling, and even scuba diving in the clear, fresh waters. These cenotes are connected by a network of trails that meander through the lush vegetation, providing guests with the opportunity to enjoy the area's natural beauty and wildlife. The cenotes are not only a natural wonder but also hold great cultural significance for the Maya people, who considered cenotes to be sacred gateways to the underworld.
Chikin Ha offers an adventure that is both exciting and tranquil, where the sacred waters of the cenotes create an environment that feels almost otherworldly. Visitors leave with not only a sense of awe for nature's artistry but also a deeper appreciation for the Mayan culture that reveres these waters.
