Located 3 km before Valladolid. Its name in Mayan means "Pig".

It is an underground cave with three entrances, railings along the edges and stone steps in front of the cenote, where you can sit, relax and admire the stalactite formations. The water is so clear that you can see the fish. Visitors are also welcome to swim in the turquoise waters and there are life jackets available to rent, although the water is very shallow.

You can get there by the #180 Mérida-Valladolid highway. 3 km before reaching Valladolid, there is a turn that leads to Dzitnup. From there, it is a two kilometer walk to X `Kekén.

After the tour, you can find a good selection of restaurants and hotels in the city.
