Cenote Azul The cenotes, pronounced Seh-no-tays, are one of the main attractions in this region.
The Riviera Maya is home to hundreds of kilometers of this underground river system.
On our blog article, you can find out more information about these fascinating bodies of water: Describe Cenotes.
These caves have sections that are entirely underground, partially hidden, and even rest on the surface like lakes in certain cases.
Stalactites and stalagmites are common, some of them are just enjoyable to swim in, and nearly all of them are breathtakingly gorgeous.
The water in these cenotes is rainwater that has been purified through local limestone to produce sparkling fresh water.
We chose to visit Cenote Azul on Sunday (Blue Cenote). It is situated on the Riviera Maya, about 20 minutes’ drive from Playa del Carmen, just south of Puerto Aventuras. (Direction Tulum)
One of our favorites among the many activities to do in the Playa del Carmen area is this.
Large in size is Cenote Azul. If you are not a good swimmer, you can bring a life jacket or rent one on site for a small price because there are several distinct places with varying depths.
You can purchase bags of chips from a little “store” or bring your own food and beverages.
You can leap down a cliff in the major cenote region. The people-watching as they attempt to persuade themselves to do it is equally interesting.
Are you afraid of heights? No problem; if you want to leap without worrying about height, there is a dock.
