Want to know the end to a perfect afternoon in the Yucatan? Taking a dip in a cenote.
What is a cenote, you ask?
It’s a formation resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes the groundwater underneath. You might even call it a freshwater sinkhole, but that label does a disservice to the natural beauty of one. Cenotes are characteristic to Mexico and Central America.
We happened to catch this one in Mexico’s Yucatan province. It was just about perfect for a late afternoon swim.
Open up the panorama and see for yourself.
