Cenote Chikin Ha

Cenote fun for the entire family!


Duration: 5-7 Hours

Experience Level: Open Water

Dive Type: Cenote/Cavern

What's included? The trip includes 2 tanks, weights, snacks, water, park entrance, and a great guide that is at least Instructor and Full Cave certified.

The Chikin Ha Cenote dive is located about 25 km south of Playa del Carmen, just past Puerto Aventuras. The cenote has a large, half-moon shape with a large sloping ceiling and crystal clear water. The cavern dive will take you through great white limestone tunnels to Rainbow Cenote.   Once you reach a depth of 30ft/10m you will see an amazing halocline, which is where you can see the separation of fresh and saltwater. You can do two 40 minute dives on different lines here. Always keep an eye towards the entrance for the spectacular light effects on sunny days.  You can even see the wonderful jungle landscape while you are underwater! This cenote is home to a people that participate in Mayan traditions, so sometimes you can see a Mayan ceremony taking place near Cenote Rainbow.  The Mayan community that owns this beautiful area, sometimes celebrates near a nicely decorated cavern.

Within the park, you can find three cenotes : Xtabay, Chikin Ha and Rainbow.   In the Chikin Ha cenote, you can zip line and all 3 are great for snorkeling.  Being so close to Playa del Carmen and Tulum, this is truly the perfect place for families and groups that have non divers, so everyone can have enormous amounts of fun.

Before the dive you will be given a proper safety briefing and your guide will talk to you about the correct way to dive in the cenote.  There is a guideline which we must follow at all times, but you will always remain within the natural light zone.  This means that you should always be able to see sunlight during the dive.  There is not enough light in the cenotes for the use of a GoPro, but please be sure to let us know if you are planning on bringing a camera as this changes the way we talk about dive safety.

The Chikin Ha cenote dives are included in the Taste of the Riviera Maya Package and is great for beginners.  If you are looking for a little more adventure, take a look at the dives at The Pit and Dos Ojos!
