We started off the day with another early wake up at 6:30 am., then we headed off for the Cenotes!!! A Cenote is a natural pit or sink hole resulting from the collapse of the lime stone bed rock that exposes ground water underneath
The first Cenote we went to was called Blue butterfly, and even though it didn’t look like a Butterfly it sure was blue. The water was the pure definition of the color blue, and when the light hit it just right you could see through the water, but you couldn’t see to the bottom considering it was 120 feet deep. To follow the beautiful water there was also a 9m jump we have the option of taking, which of course we all did. The second Cenote we went to was more underground and we walked down a large spiral stair case to get to. The third was the biggest, there wasn't a ladder nor stairs so we had to climb down some rock. At one point while I was swimming I saw an available small cliff that I wanted to jump off of so I climbed the ledge which took about 15 minutes. But once I got there I was attacked by bees. I luckily jumped in time before any of them stung me. The last Cenote was my personal favorite. It was entirely underground and I mean it was pitch black. Our guide gave us a tour of the Cenote in the water while it was pitch black which was terrifying but also magical. We learned that it takes 100 years for a stalagtite to grow one centimeter! After about 30 minutes of complete darkness they turned on some lights. And once those lights turned on it was like we were in a whole other world. The water was the cleanest water I have ever seen and the lime stone drooping down looked like missiles that froze in mid air. It was magical. We then went home and all of us passed out from this exhausting yet incredible day.
