I took two of the guests to Cenote Azul for a swim this morning. Ricardo is a doctor in the neurology department at the IMSS hospital in Guadalajara. Dean is travelling around Mexico from Australia.
A cenote is a sinkhole in the limestone firmament of the earth. There are lots of them in Yucatan. Some cenotes require going down a ladder to reach the water level and resemble caves with stalactites and stalgmites. Cenote Azul is unique because it is at ground level and easy to enjoy.
There is a restaurant on the edge of the cenote. We ordered breakfast and took a swim. The entrance to the cenote is free. Compared to many a tourist attraction over here on the Costa Maya, this one is affordable for everyone.
