Yax Chen
Located south of Tulum, Yax Chen consists of a number of large cenotes connected by cave passages, forming a chain heading inland. Situated in an area of mangroves and savannah, its water is high in nutrients and tannic acid. Although this reduces visibility and makes diving more challenging, it supports a wide range of wildlife, including large tarpon, crocodiles and turtles, making Yax Chen a fascinating place to dive even though it is largely lacking in speleothems. Yax Chen was originally explored by Kay and Gary Walten and their team from Proyecto Yax Chen during an impressive series of dives over a number of years, and we are grateful to them for making their survey data and dive logs available to assist us in our exploration.
