2. Discover the cenote’s rout.

Something that characterizes the Riviera Maya is that there are a lot of cenotes, these are underground freshwater bodies that in some cases have openings at the top and in others are caves. 

When you swim in one of them you will feel how you connect with nature, the crystal clear and fresh water accompanied by vegetation are the perfect combination. 

Remember to bring biodegradable sun screen, water and food, it is important that you collect the garbage on your way out to keep these small paradises.

You can find individual trips to each of the cenotes or you can set aside a tour for the whole day, around $900 MXN ($45 USD approx.), can increase the cost if this includes visits to any of the archaeological areas or to any of the emblematic places of the Riviera Maya.
