The Cenote of Chinkultic: reasons to visit this mythical place
When we talk about the cenote of Chinkultic, there are three words that come to mind immediately: magnificent, heavenly and spectacular! It is located in the middle of the jungle and comes from the lake Tepancuapan and the lake Chanujabab which are twins and connected by a tributary crossing the archaeological site. This cenote gives the name of the site because Chinkultic means “staircase cenote” in Mayan language.
Once at the top of part A, you can have an exceptional view of the cenote. The cenote of Chinkultic is sacred. It has a dark appearance, the water is dark in color and the guardians of the area mention that offerings of all kinds have been found, including humans, since the Mayan era.
This very quiet place is therefore a used setting to breathe fresh air while enjoying an impressive view. It is clear that this mythical and beautiful place is well worth the detour; a landmark recommended to adventurers, swimmers and nature lovers.
Finally, if you want to go there, note that the archaeological area of Chinkultic is located in the municipality of Comitan is located about 45 minutes from the area. The opening hours are from 8am to 5pm. Do not hesitate to go to this fabulous site during your next stay in Mexico!
