The state of Yucatan treasures some of the most beautiful cenotes of these Mayan lands. Near the town of Mucuyche, we found some beautiful ones. The Chihuo Hol cenote is popular with locals.
The cenote Chihuo Hol is more modest visually than the nearby cenotes of Kankirixche y Yaaluzdzil, in the surroundings of the town of Mucuyche. It is very popular among the locals being shallow water. Most local people do not know how to swim, so in this type of shallow cenotes they are very comfortable and usually approach on Sundays to spend the day.
We recommend 8 Cenotes in Merida and surroundings that you must visit
Leaving Mucuyché address Xcanchacán, on your left hand you will see a wooden sign hanging on a tree indicating this cenote. You must travel a dirt road for about a kilometer and a half.
A roof of cave half collapsed collects in its shade the crystalline waters of the Cenote Chihuo Hol. I wish the place was cleaner and no garbage accumulated. Lack of civic education to understand the improvement of the environment without garbage. Since you are here, be an example and do not dirty the place.
If you want to know more cenotes we have the CENOTES section on the blog, where you will find many others to visit on your way through Mayan lands.
Cenotes Chihuo Hol, cenotesLOCATION: Cenote Chihuo Hol they are in the area of the town of Mucuyché, a few meters towards Xcanchacán. To get to Mucuyché from Mérida Take the 261 road towards Muna. You must take the detour to Abalá. From here you should head towards Mukuyché.
SCHEDULE AND SERVICES: It is not a cenote that cares for anyone in particular, access is free. I do not advise you to go outside the daylight hours. There are no services, take care of the environment, pick up your garbage. It does not have basic services.
HOW TO GET IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION? Until Abalá there is transportation from Mérida. In small municipalities there is always mototaxi to move.
WHAT TO BRING? Light and light clothing, hat, insect repellent, sunscreen (use it after bathing), closed and comfortable shoes to protect yourself from insect bites, some water always goes well swimsuit and a towel or pareo to dry after the bath. It is a good option to take diving mask to better appreciate the place.
THE LAW OF THE GOOD CENOTERO: To avoid contaminating the delicate water of the cenotes, do not use body creams, or protectors, or repellents before entering them. Do not hang from the roots of the trees or touch the stalactites or do any other idiocy that damages the place.
