Discover the wonders of Cenote Calcuch

Calcuch is located in the muncipality of Sabacché, 65 km from Mérida following the road towards Acancech, at the junction of Tecoh, its waters are distinguished by being jade green and possessing endemic species such as the blind lady and the blind eel, fish from the region.

Cenote Calcuch

The Calcuch cenote (loader neck in Spanish) has a long iron staircase that is the most fascinating sculpture in the area. Calcuch has a huge swimming cavity, with roots reaching into the underworld in search of water.

It is dark due to the poor opening of the cenote, but the water is crystal clear as is usually the case in most cenotes. Its waters are jade green, which gives it a different appearance compared to the blue color of other cenotes. Endemic fish live here, as well as other organisms that give us a better understanding of the Yucatecan land and the planet.


You can get there by taking a bus at the Noreste terminal, located on Calle 67 between Calles 50 and 52, Centro, Mérida. Arriving in Chinquila, you can rent bicycles to get to the Campepen cenote and there you can take a bus to get to the Sabacché Community for the Calcuch cenote. By car 60 minutes from Mérida, or you can book with us and we will take care of your transportation
