- First stop -
Just 15 min outside Merida we can acces this magical cenote within the Archeological Site of Dzibichaltun. Instead of being deep underground, the waters in this cenote sit at ground level, making it easy to access for old and young alike. During May Xlacah is at its peak, where crystalline blue waters, freshly-bloomed irises and tiny fish that inhabit the cenote combine for a swimming experience like no other.
- Second stop -
A one of a kind archeological site! Dzibilchaltun was a large settlement and still occupied when the Spanish arrived during the 1500s. We will explore both important mayan ruisn and also colonial spanish ruins.
