Like a Fish in Water
Every time I jump into a cenote I feel free. These mystical holes filled with water have their origin in the Yucatan Peninsula, and there are more than 5,000! Ever since the first time I visited one, about three years ago, I realized why are they so important, but also why people adore them.
I remember the time I went to Cenotes Samula and Xkeken. Both of them are cavern type cenotes and they are actually in the same place in Yucatan. I made a road trip from Cancun to Chichen Itza, and on the way, I visit them during the morning.
The feeling is almost indescribable. It is something you have to live in your own flesh. The water is very cold! But the weather is super hot all year long, so it’s actually refreshing. The scenery is imposing, even a bit frightening, but once you jump in and get relaxed in the water, the experience becomes pure joy!
Being in contact with nature always makes me happy and my energy recharges. They say that water is life, and yes, every time I swim in a cenote I feel alive.
