Kantunchi Ecopark: four cenotes that can’t be missed in the Mayan Riviera

We’re sure the following names don’t mean anything to you: Sas ka leen ha, Uch Ben Ha, Zacil Ha, Kantun Chi.

No, they’re not a tongue twister created to invoke some Mayan deity that makes it rain. These are the names of the four cenotes that make up the Kantunchi Ecopark, one of the most unforgettable tours available on your next vacation to the Mayan Riviera.

The park is only 22 km (13.5 mi) from Playa del Carmen and can be reached by bus using Federal Highway 307, or you can board a bus on Fifth Avenue that runs every day from 9 am to 5 pm that will take you to this charming ecopark.

Sas ka leen Ha, whose name means “transparent water,” is the park’s largest cenote. Inside you’ll find a Mayan structure that was most likely used for ceremonies.

Uch Ben Ha is a small rest stop along your journey. With hammocks and calm, crystal-clear waters, it’s the ideal space to relax in nature and spend a pleasant moment.

Zacil Ha is a cenote that invites exploration, adventure and an interaction of light and shadow that only those who have descended into the heart of the Mayan Riviera will understand. If you have an underwater camera, you can’t miss this chance to dive down and record this incredible cenote.

Finally, there’s Kantun Chi, a cenote in the heart of a tropical jungle with exuberant greenery, home to flora and fauna you’ve never imagined.

It’s very easy to get to Kantun Chi from any of Happy Address‘ locations; if you prefer, you can rent a car and go at your own pace, without worries.
