Kantun Chi Eco Park

An ecopark that delves into the world of the ancient Maya, Kantun Chi allows guests to explore mystical caverns and swim in underground lakes.

These humbling caverns are a stark reminder that the ground is not as solid as we sometimes believe. As you explore this sub-subterranean park you will come across pools that are so clear that you can see the bottom, which are a couple dozen feet deep.

This park has a collection of large water-filled caves that you can snorkel, dive, swim, or kayak in.


Located in the vicinity of La Gloria, 1.9 miles west of Puerto Aventuras, Kantun Chi Eco Park happily welcomes residents and travelers lodging in this part of the Riviera Maya.

Kantun Chi is accessible just 200 meters south of the Barcelo Maya Hotel. Buses from Cancun drive right up to the property, while those driving can take Federal Highway 307 south from Cancun. Parking is available every day beginning at 9:00 a.m.
