Swim in its Cenotes
If you come to the Yucatan, you must swim at least at one cenote.
Immerse yourself at the deep blue of thousands of liters of crystal clear water, without current, nor waves, and decorated with stalactites and stalagmites that have been formed through thousands or millions of years.
Cenotes are perfect to swim, snorkel, and even to scuba dive.
