Our first trip to a cenote was magical! I highly recommend visiting one while traveling in Mexico. The colors were incredible. A cenote is a natural pool of water. There are a lot of cenotes in the Riviera Maya. This cenote is called Jardín de Edén. It is about 20 minutes away from Playa del carmen. It was cool and refreshing, and the water was so clear. It was really stunning!
This is the video I put together with clips from the cenote trip. You will see some fish and lots of beautiful images from under the water. We took our kids, ages 6 and 4. At first they were a little scared of the small fish. After they saw that the fish didn't hurt us, they weren't afraid. They loved swimming and playing with other kids. My husband was brave and jumped off the side of the rocks by the cenote. There were a lot of people snorkeling and some people were scuba diving. There is so much to see under the water!
There are quite a few cenotes I would like to check out while we are here. Stay tuned for more videos from our cenote trips!
Thanks for following our adventure! -Michelle
