The cenote in Valladolid, Mexico

image

The night before we went to the majestic Chichen Itza ruins, we slept at Valladolid in a scruffy budget hotel. Valladolid itself is a small and charming colonial town.

After we visited the Chichen Itza ruins, we took the bus back to Valladolid and spent a few hours walking around the town.

The cenote in the center of town was a pleasant surprise. For a small entrance fee you can swim in a beautiful natural pool with the black fishes around you.

The trees and plants around the cenote create a fairytale setting.

Look at the stalactites hanging over the water! It felt like swimming inside a cave!

There were many locals swimminf in the cenote. A group of international tourists arrived while we were there. It’s great that this natural wonder is appreciated!

There were ropes inside the water to hold on to.

After a cooling off in the cenote, we took a bus to Cancun.
