Cenotillo owes its name to the large number of cenotes that are found in the area, although most are closed to the public. The Xooch Cenote is, without a doubt, the most special in the eastern part of the state and unique in the Yucatan, both for its large size, with a water mirror of approximately 60m in diameter, and for the exuberant nature that surrounds it. To get there, venture out on a 4km bike ride from the downtown Cenotillo to the entrance of the cenote, where you’ll find a fresh palapa to catch your breath.
Live an almost exclusive experience by swimming in its crystalline waters, since very few visitors dare to come to this site. After visiting the cenote, enjoy Cenotillo’s gastronomic offerings, a combination of traditional Yucatecan and Chinese cuisine, a legacy of a long history of the locals’ migration to the United States.
