Chikin Ha
the half-moon cenote 

Chikin Ha is a very large half-moon cenote located approximately 25kms from Playa del Carmen. Chikin-Ha meaning “Western water” is the first Cenote in a system that connects several Cenotes through more than 10kms of underwater passages.

During our dive, we will pass through a large tunnel where you will experience strange visual effects due to the halocline. At the end of this tunnel you will arrive at the Rainbow Cenote. On the way back you will have the opportunity to pass again through the “halocline tunnel” where you will see fossils, crystal formations and speleothems. Always keep an eye toward the entrance for spectacular light effects on sunny days.
