The state of Yucatán treasures some of the most beautiful cenotes in these Mayan lands. Near the town of Mucuyche, we find some beautiful ones. The Chihuo Hol cenote is popular with locals.
The cenote Chihuo Hol is visually more modest 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 towards Xcanchacán, on your left you will see a wooden sign hanging on a tree indicating this cenote. You will have to 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 trash accumulated. Civic education is lacking to understand the improvement of the environment without garbage. Since you are here, be an example and do not litter 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.

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.
