Cenote Azul

Big cenote!

Big cenote!

Yesterdays adventure included a trip to a very large cenote called Cenote Azul.  The entrance to it is through an interesting multi level restaurante……but swimming in the cenote was free.  We were told that the cenote is a cone shape, getting deeper towards the center and dropping down some 250 feet!  The darker water is a good indication of how deep the water is.  The water was warm and there were fish in it as well!  After a swim there, we headed into the town of Chetumal which is the capital of Quintana Roo.  Down at the Bahia de Chetumal, the water is very shallow until out quite far so we didn’t go swimming.  The town is bustling with activity and there is a long street with a ton of shopping called “Avenida de Heroes”.  After the calm and serenity of Lake Bacalar, the town of Chetumal seemed chaotic!  After a while, I was happy to get out of the hustle and bustle of the town and back to the tranquility of Bacalar! I was glad to get back into the lake for a swim and a soak in the jacuzzi.  Rancho Encantado is a wonderful place and it will be hard to leave it tomorrow but I know we will be back!  Hopefully the lake will be calm tomorrow morning so I can paddle!!!  I have a feeling I will be paddling tomorrow…..finally!
