One of the more interesting adventure opportunities for visitors to Mexico is the chance to go swimming and diving in the Cenotes. A Cenote is formed when limestone bedrock collapses, creating a sinkhole that is filled with ground water that often flows in from an underground river. That water was a source of life for early civilizations in Mexico and today they grant access to some amazing underground cave systems that simply have to be seen to be believed.
Our friend Richard Bangs recently visited the Cenotes and in the video below he gives us a glimpse at this subterranean wonderland. It is a beautiful tour into a world that few of us ever get to seek.
My bucket list has once again gotten a little longer.
