"VALLADOLID....This is a cenote..." Mexico Off The Beaten Path Tip by Lyn_2

Mexico Off The Beaten Path: 212 reviews and 213 photos


<FONT COLOR=BLUE><B>VALLADOLID....</FONT></B>This is a cenote called 'Cenote Dzitnup' or by it's Mayan name..'Cenote X'keken'. It is located 2km, outside Valladolid. It is a heavenly experience to swim in Dzitnup on a hot day in the Yucatan. You climb down some stairs that go underground, strip down to your bathing suit and jump in. Locals as well as the more adventurous travelers like it's cool deep waters. There is a very small charge. You can rent a bike in Valladolid and ride out to the cenote or take a combi or taxi. Mexico has many cenotes throughout the Yucatan and some are good for diving and caving too.

Be sure to click on this picture to enlarge it. It's awsome! Not mine! Borrowed from a postcard!
