Valladolid

The hot and humid weather of the Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Valladolid, Yucatán, is idoneous for a tour through its cenotes; natural water pools of unbelievable beauty. It is easy to get to any of these caverns that are open to the public.

The cenote Zici is a cavern with half a roof collapsed. It is located in the heart of the Historical Center of Valladolid. The vegetation in its walls and the numerous stalactites make it a very special place. Its depth ranges from 25 to 100 mtrs, so it is advisable to use lifejackets. You can also use a zipline for going through it.

Cenote Oxman is located in The Hacienda San Lorenzo Oxman, five minutes distance from Valladolid. After you go down through the wooden stairs , you will be able to swim in its crystalline blue waters. Take a look to its diverse bird variety and to its extraordinary vines.

In the cenote Dzitnup you will actually find two of them: Samulá y X’kekén. You can get to the first one through spiral stairs . X’kekén is an almost closed cenote with just a tiny hole that will only allow you to get in along with the sunlight.

Cenote Suytun is probably the most photographed of all in valladolid. A natural platform allows you to appreciate the blue color of its water. There are cottages that connect you directly with this water pool.

In the Cenote Choj-Há you can make rapel, besides swimming. You can also make a kayak tour here. This cenote is located quite close to the Santa Rosa grotto.

Finally, if you go to X’canché, you can practise rappel, kayak and try the zipline. There’s also bike rental to get to the archaeological zone Ek Balam.
