When in Valladolid, you can cool off in Cenote Xkeken, a spacious limestone chamber with a natural pool. One of two cenotes in the area, Xkeken is easily accessible and filled with crystal clear, azure water. Drive or cycle from Valladolid to the vast cavern, where you can swim and snorkel in the large sinkhole. The shady cove offers a great getaway from the heat, while interesting stalactites hanging from the ceiling, sprinkled with rays of sunshine, add to the cenote's pleasant aesthetic. Add Cenote Xkeken to your Valladolid travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Valladolid trip planner.
