A day trip from Cancun to the cenotes of the Yucatan is well worth it. It only takes 2 hours by bus to get to the Magic Town of Valladolid. From there you can take a taxi for around 60 pesos to the nearby town of Temozón. Here you have several amazing options for cenotes. Cenote Hubiku rivals in size and beauty with other better known ones. However, it is its 3 kilometers path inside the jungle and other details that make this hidden giant an adventure. Located in Temozón in the heart of the Yucatan´s archaeological zone, Hubiku cenote offers the perfect way to cool off either before or after visiting the Maya Ruins of Ek Balam or Chichen Itza.
From way up high Hubiku appears to be a small pin prick in the earth, a passageway to another world. But as you descend and feel the air temperature change, you cannot hold yourself back from wanting to plunge into the mysterious turquoise, blue pool below. At certain times of the day, the sun’s rays peak through the canopy, projecting magical shimmers to the waters. And the water cascading into the pool from above is breathtaking.
CASA TADEO: TEQUILA MUSEUM IN CENOTE HUBIKU
Before or after your dip you should take a walk around Casa Tadeo, a museum where you will learn how tequila is made. Here you can sample and buy a wide variety of flavors ranging from chocolate and cappuccino to cherry, strawberry, peanut and passion fruit.
If you think that that is all to see, there is more yet. There is a small Mayan village, where you can find reproductions of the old “chozas” of the region as well as brief explanations about the traditions of Maya culture.
Between all the walking and swimming, you will end up very hungry. Kin restaurant is the only eatery at Hubiku but it is extremely good. Kin restaurant offers a wide variety of typical Yucatecan dishes including pibil, picadillo, pork, Maya cooked fish, ceviche and tasty Mexican rice, guacamole and spicy sauces. Beautiful servers with amazing serving skills will delight you.
Excellent services, and ease of access to nearby Chichen Itza and Ek Balam ranks this cenote a favorite amongst travelers.
As well as access to Hubiku cenote, the entry price includes a tour of the Don Tadeo tequila museum and Maya village. Here you can sample tequilas and handmade tortillas respectively. The entry price also includes a Mexican buffet in the Kin restaurant but drinks are not included.
