Chunkanaan Cenotes Fun (Again)

I never get tired of taking folks out to the cenotes at Chunkanaan (also called the Cuzama cenotes) and it is very gratifying to see them marvel at - and revel in - the natural beauty of these 3 swimming holes. On a hot April day, there is nothing better than to jump off the wooden platforms into the refreshing, clear blue water.


 On this occasion, Doña Juanita was there, selling fresh fruit to whomever needed a natural snack to combat the intense, dry April heat.

And who can deny the bone-jarring fun of riding the horsedrawn 'truck' along those narrow gauge railway tracks?

And of course the trip there would not be complete without a stop at the beautiful Gothic church in EkNakan.
