Chikin Ha, Playa del Carmen

4.6
#4 of 20 in Parks in Playa del Carmen
A popular diving spot, Chikin Ha is part of a cenote system discovered in 1997. Swim and snorkel in the open-air cavern with clear water that allows you to see fish, coral formations, turtles, and stingrays. While scuba diving in the cenote you can explore the adjoining caverns as the sunlight rays illuminate the turquoise waters. Zipline into the freshwater basin, witness a traditional Mayan ceremony, or have a picnic in the scenic jungle setting. Chikin Ha is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Playa del Carmen Edition.

  • You pay a small fee to enter and everything has very easy access, so do not recommend going with tour that is very expensive, to go quietly on account. To see everything takes 1 hour and a half to 2 hours, if you want to stay in the water you can stay a lot more. The main are three points of cenote, one open, one semiopen and the third is a sacred cenote where Mayas rituals happen, you cannot touch the water of this third but it is beautiful and with a very strong good energy.

  • Beautiful Cenotes super clear water and lots of fish and even a fresh water turtle! Very cool place definitely wear some sort of water shoes and bring your own snorkeling stuff if you got it. Otherwise you can rent but it’s kind of a hassle.
  • Great place but later found it that scuba divers (which I am) pay about 100 peso less than the average tourist who just wants to snorkel. Now I'm not complaining about that, But I'll complain that they aren't very upfront about the prices in general which is why 4 instead of 5 star. That and other really nice cenotes are less expensive for equal beauty.
