Cenotes

We hope you enjoy our Travel Vlog to Valladolid, Mexico to explore their cenotes.

Episode Details:

 

  • 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 the hotel we stayed at (http://www.mesondelmarques.com). 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).

Chichen Itza

  • Join us as we travel to Chichen Itza (Chichén Itzá).
