Christmas Cave Jumping

I spent Christmas Day last year jumping into underground caves in the Yucatán peninsula in Mexico. Plus I’ve been back three times since then! This activity is one of the most popular optional excursions we offer on tour. There are over 1,000 of these caves and sinkholes, called ‘cenotes’, in the permeable limestone region of the Yucatán.

Each ‘cenote’ is unique and memorable in their own way. The refraction of the sunlight hitting the water makes for some absolutely stunning photos. I Skyped my family back home after they had finished their Christmas dinner and tried to explain the concept of a ‘cenote’, but it’s hard to describe without photos.

These pictures are from our guide Raúl in the ‘cenotes’ at Cuzama, about an hour from our hotel base in Mérida. Let the pictures tell you everything – this is special.
