Swim in a cenote or an underground river

One of the best things to do in the Yucatan Peninsula is to swim in a cenote, a large natural sinkhole, which is perfect for professional and amateur divers and ordinary people who just want to discover one of the natural wonders in México. In ancient times, they were used as a source of water supply and for religious ceremonies, but nowadays, cenotes are one of the best options to relax and explore.
