Some of the topics include: 

 

  • A Cenote is a natural pit or sinkhole. They are created when there is a collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater.

  • Cenote Zací (Cenote Zaci) was a 10 minute walk from our hotel. This cenote is only half covered which allows tons of sunlight in. We even took turns diving off of a cliff into the water!

  • We also visited the "Blue Cave" Cenote Xkeken (meaning "pig" in Mayan) and Cenote Samulá (Cenote Samula). They share a parking area and have passes that can be combined together.

  • Back in the city center of Valladolid we hung out at Parque Principal Francisco Canton Rosado. We enjoyed delicious marquesitas, sat in the 2 seater benches, and enjoyed the view of the Church of Saint Servatius (Iglesia de San Servacio). We also saw the fountain of “La Mestiza” (mixed race woman).

  • Then we figured out a way to visit Chichen Itza when it was not too busy in order to have this amazing ancient city almost completely to ourselves before the large crowds came in. We tell you all about traveling to Chichén Itzá; one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
