We have enjoyed visiting many cenotes over the year in Mexico, and we try to find ones with unique features such as rope swings or ziplines.  Cenote Chikin-Ha offers three cenotes (Xtabay, Chikin Ha, and Tak-Bil Ha) and ziplining, making it an easy choice.

We drove there from Akumal with our rental car (from Avant Car Rental). 

It was easy to find using Google Maps, and is right off the main highway. 

There were also signs along the highway.

We enjoyed the signs along the way.

There is plenty of parking here.

We parked and walked over to the reception area.

There are three levels of ziplines, so our kids did that first before we checked out the cenotes.

The jungle here was very buggy when we visited in July.  While I would recommend bug spray, I believe you have to rinse off before swimming in the cenotes.

After going on the zip lines, we headed to the cenotes.  

Cenote X-Tabay seemed to be the largest cenote, and it is also very scenic.

Cenote Chikin-Ha had two sections.  One section was closed, but looked like it was originally a nice place for swimming and jumping off platforms. 

The other section was under a large rock ledge.  It was very scenic, but also quite cold, probably from not receiving much sun.

The last cenote we visited was Tak-Bil Ha.  This was also a more covered cenote, and the sign read that there was no swimming

When we were done, we headed back up to the main area.  There are some snacks available for purchase, as well as restrooms and showers.
