There is so much to explore during your vacation in the Riviera Maya. On your next trip, forget the turquoise ocean, sandy white beaches, and jungle tours for one day so you can discover and enjoy a magical adventure called a Cancun Cenote.
A Cancun Cenote is a sinkhole created when a cave ceiling has collapsed. They are filled with fresh water and are so clear you can see down to the depths below.
Here are 3 ways to enjoy a Cancun Cenote during your Mexico vacation.
- Explore the lush Jungle – You will find beautiful trees and greenery surrounding the cenote. One of the most interesting things you will see are the tree roots and how they extend into the cenote in search of water to keep alive.
- Enter a mystical Cave – Many cenotes can only be reached by traveling through a windy stairway deep into the darkness where you will find an amazing cave used by the Mayan civilization as an entryway to their underworld.
- Swim the fresh, mineral rich water – Open air cenotes are full of green algae build up which is rich in minerals and nutrients and help nourish and protect the skin and body.
Make your trip even more memorable with a Cancun Underwater photo session.
