Once you have experienced swimming in a cenote you will find yourself looking for more cenotes to conquer and the Yucatan peninsula is the perfect place for it.
Cenotes are surface connections to subterranean water bodies; water is often very clear, as the water comes from rain water filtering slowly through the ground.
Through the past years we have experienced a few of the cenotes that are within the Tulum area. We went from our Trash The Dress photo shoot at cenote Cristalino, to almost cave diving at Cenote Calavera (Refer to “A promise” post to read more about this cenote).
Our newest adventure took us to Cenote Encantado. Located almost at the entrance of the Sian Kaan Reserve you will be able to find signs for this magical place.
Resembling a little tinny village offering camping facilities, a shared kitchen, a yoga studio and the best part a cenote. This place is ideal if you are looking into experiencing life in Tulum as a camper, meeting new people from around the world, and truly becoming one with nature.
Rafts and floaties are available for you to enjoy the clear water of the cenote, you will definitely enjoy swimming or snorkeling without having many people around.
Galia, the owner of this beautiful place was really pleasant and friendly to talk to, and once we were there, every single one of the guest just spoke wonderful things about her. She has truly created a magical village there.
We spent a Sunday morning in the clear waters of Cenote Encantado, and believe me the peace and joy that you get to experience while there is priceless.
If you are planning a visit to the Tulum area don’t hesitate to stop by, whether you are there for several days, for a workshop (Underwater meditation, yoga, dance and acrobatic classes are often being offered) or just to enjoy the peacefulness of the place, Cenote Encantado won’t disappoint you.
“The senses of body, mind and spirit become one, enveloping us with it’s healing mineral waters, it’s musical sounds and clear visibility which fills us with sublime visions of the eternal ancient world”
