Chikin- ha means water of the west. The cenote features only one cavern dive and for that reason is not so often dived. The line is quite long so if air planning is no concern we can easily dive up to 60 min there. A tunnel leads us into the halocline before we ascend into the shallower areas around cenote rainbow. As the name suggest, the white sun beams are split into the different colours of the rainbow and when you look into the untouched surface, you will see where this cenote has its name from. Chikin- Ha has less formations, but the fragile stone is so fast dissolved that it uncovered numerous fossils of which my personal favourites are the many sea urchins that you can find there.
