Today we spent our one full day in Merida visiting the nearby Cenote. After a half a hour drive we arrived at the parking lot. From there we had to take little railway carts pulled by poor horses, and we picked the most stubborn one. After another 15minutes rumbling down the rails we arrived at the first cave. It was about 15 meter under the surface and accessible only via an old Mexican built wooden stair. Well, we survived the way down (and apparently the way up also). Down there we enjoyed the refreshing but not so cold water and the nice dripstone cave-ish atmosphere.
The second one was very special. Right beside the hole in the surface was a big tree whose roots made it all the way down to the water. There also have been roots growing out of the top of a dripstone. Never saw that before. I didn’t went down for the third cave cause it was to annoying with all the equipment I was caring around. Felt like a donkey on a staircase before, had enough. 😀
But back to topic. Yesterday I took one of the most refreshing showers in my life. It’s good to have a cooling box in the bathroom. 😉
