After Chichen Itza and a visit to the Sacred Well, the next stop on the Xichen tour was lunch in the colonial city of Valladolid. After some classic Mexican cuisine we set out to walk off the food and find the convent of El San Bernardino. The history on the colorful streets, churches and convent painted a much different Mexico.
After a tour inside the catholic relic, we hopped on board the bus again for one final stop, the main Cenote Zaci.
An enormous pool of refreshing water sat deep below. As I climbed down the stairs to capture a better view and better photo, I noticed a few folks down on the edge preparing to take a dip. Dry and refreshed thanks to the provided cool facial towels by Xichen, I did not join them inside the water. Yet, I definitely shared in their joy. Simply enormous.
Thanks for joining me on 20 days across Mexico. Stay adventurous, Craig
Day 20 of the 20 day Mexico Bicentennial Tribute. Day 5 of Cenote Week.
