cenote CHIKIN HA
dive with us & discover the mayan cenotes
The cavern tour leads you from the Chikin Ha cenote to the Rainbow cenote, through a phreatic gallery of white rocks, dissolved in all shapes by the salt water. Divers swim through a halocline before surfacing within the roots of the jungle trees that dig through the rocks to hydrate in the underground river. Beautiful light beams reach the bottom of the cave and lead your way up to the second cenote. Upon surfacing, you can usually enjoy the sight of the motmot birds, proud symbol and guardian of the Mayan caves. Divers then make their way back from the other side of the gallery to reach their entrance in shallow waters.
