At 20 kilometers west from Puerto Morelos, on the road from Puerto Morelos to Leona Vicario, just after the Selvatica Park. Find a diversion signage and dirt left.The state of this dirt road is fair to poor. The cars must travel at low speeds and evading fords large rocks on the road, following hand painted on pieces of wood to be taken to "Kin Ha" addresses.
You are in one of the most unique natural wonders of the Riviera Maya are the cenotes, these are created by an underground river system and are fresh water sink holes considered to be sacred. You will take a jungle tour in ATV's where the Mayans also believed they were the entrance to the underworld. This location offers ATV’s (20 km round trip), scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming and eight zip lines.
The Tour: The tour starts with the Pick Up at your Hotel, the timing will be given to you when reservation is done! Then you get a briefing on how the tour will be held, timings and more and also you get a refreshing welcome Drink! You start with an ATV ride than can be a couple of hours in the middle of the great Mayan Jungle where you'll be able to see lots of beautiful green areas. Then you stop again at the Kin Ha Cenote to take a dive into to closed cenote (cavern) and into an open cenote (Cenote Zapote) where there are ziplines to jump to the water if you wish. While in the ATV's tour you'll stop at a certain point in the middle of the Jungle to take the two amazing zip lines included in this tour. After all this you might one some snacks, so they'll give you some chips and other kinds of snacks as well as drinks, like water or sodas. This is one of the most complet tours with transportation included (which can be really expensive by your own), so this ir really worth it! This is a commercialized cenote site.
