Very close to Chichén Itzá On the road that goes from Piste to Dzitás is the Cenote Xcajum Ecotourism Park, which in the Mayan language means “The Place of Sounds” and it is the perfect place for lovers of nature and ecotourism.
We recommend you visit it after having toured the archaeological zone of Chichén Itzá to be able to fully enjoy it since it is one of the most visited cenotes in the area.

Upon arrival you can drive along a dirt road that will lead you to the parking area and the entrance to the park.
Right at the entrance, the park has a large shop selling typical regional and Mexican crafts, selling hats, silver jewelry and even towels or swimsuits.
