The sacred cenote is located to the north of the Kukulcan pyramid in the archaeological zone of Chichen Itzá, with 60 meters in diameter it is totally open, 15 meters separate the surface of the water and it is cordoned off to prevent people from getting too close to the shore.

The Mayans who inhabited it used it to make religious sacrifices as a tribute to their gods, in addition they also threw pottery and jewels to the bottom during the ritual. Over the years it has been dredged for the recovery of vessels, human bones, jade jewelry, copper and other materials. On its shore there is still a platform where it is believed that the maidens were thrown from there.

Due to its cultural value and its shape, this is just a cenote that can be admired and enjoyed while you make your tour of the archaeological zone.
