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.


Situated in the vicinity of La Gloria, 1.9 miles west of Puerto Aventuras, Kantun Chi Eco Park always welcomes local customers and travelers who are rooming in this part of the Riviera Maya. Even if you are not staying in this location, you should consider stopping by to enjoy a great time. If you're wondering, Xpu Ha is a short distance away to the south west.

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.
