Cenotes are like portals to a different world. From the surface, they may appear like nothing special, but look down and go further then you will find surreal beauty.
There are some of the best cenotes in Mexico. You would love them if you’ve ever truly been there.
Mexico¡¯s Yucat¨¢n Peninsula has undeniably stunning beaches around Canc¨²n, Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. But those who wish to cool off from the sun and teeny-bikini flashiness can escape to a secret underworld of turquoise pools where Mayans communicated with the gods.
Open-air cenotes also have clear water, and often are home to vitamin- and mineral-rich algae that nourish and protect your skin.
Underwater photographers will be thrilled with the clear waters, which allow for aquatic-playground shots in high-definition clarity.
Cenote Clavavera, which is near Tulum, is one of the most famous Cenotes in Mexico.
Cenote Calavera is located about 5 minutes drive west of Tulum and is surrounded by Jungle. Calavera is tha Spanish word for skull. There is a human skull deep inside the cave, thus the name. In English this cenote is known as Temple of Doom for the same reason I guess. Parking is almost right beside the Coba highway, just a few kilometers from town. We gear up and have a thorough briefing then hike about 100 M into the jungle along a rocky pathway.
It’s really cool to float over the water and you can choose to dive to immerge into the deep.
