Cenote Kikil is a very popular place among locals because of the good restaurant they have and the facilities. It is not the most spectacular cenote, but it is a good stop to refuel.
The cenotes are local treasures that change your way through these hot lands, where you will always have a nearby water well where you can cool off in a natural space. I love to travel these lands, I adore it.
Discover the most beautiful Valladolid Cenotes and surroundings
The Kikil cenote is not the most spectacular of the cenotes, but it is a very good place to stop to refuel. further Behind this local community business there is a beautiful story of effort and improvement where they managed to clean the neglected cenote until it became this Paradisos de Indígenas parador that gives work to many of the relatives. Pride of family and work. The place has a good restaurant of local food and the cenote is inside a beautiful garden, where there is also a hammock area. This place has made many stop to enjoy its facilities. In Kikil the good life is not expensive: bathing in the cenote, food and lying in the hammock is a pleasure available to everyone.
On the road along the Flamencos Route
Cenote Kikil is on the road between Valladolid and the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, one of the most popular routes in the Yucatan Peninsula. In fact on this road you will find several pleasant surprises to stop and make a route.
CARNITAS IN TEMOZÓN: Temozón is famous for its smoked meats, so you can make a stop on your way and try the meats at one of the restaurants. My recommendation, the Concepción.
CENOTE HUBIKU: right at the north exit of Temozón we have the cenote Hubiku, one of the most visited in Yucatan. Its huge diameter is printing.
EK BALAM and CENOTE XCANCHÉ: the village of Ek Balam, the beautiful archaeological site of Ek Balam and the Xcanché cenote less than 2 kilometers. You will see the detour on the road, they have no loss.
TIZIMIN: the largest town you cross on your way, with tourist service for accommodation and restaurants. If you come in January do not miss the Tizimin Kings Fair, you are warned 🙂
CENOTE KIKIL: A few kilometers from Tizimin you enter Kikil, the pretty village on the road. The cenote Kikil is well indicated and you can visit the village museum.
Once past Kikil you have 47 kilometers left to reach the coastal towns of San Felipe, Río Lagartos and Las Coloradas, which are located within the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve. All directions are well marked on the road, you have no loss.
And above all remember that on your way you can stop to refuel and rest in the cenote Kikil, a place of local environment, a different place on your trip.
