Full description
You will be picked up at around 05:30 to 06:00 from the lobby of your hotel to begin an exclusive tour to the heart of Yucatan Peninsula. The first stop of the tour will be the route of the Cuzama cenotes. This route has become popular thanks to the peculiar way to visit the cenotes. You will travel between the cenotes on board of a special truck. The truck represents a small platform on rails pulled by horses. For more comfortable transportation nowadays, the platform has been modified with seats. These kinds of trucks were originally used in Mexican haciendas to transport the plant of henequen from the field to machinery room. To travel on board of this truck is a traditional, rustic and fun way to explore the jungle. The tour through the jungle will consist of visiting three underground cenotes. You will be allowed to swim in each cenote for 30 minutes and the total time you will spend on the Cuzama route will be around 3-hours. 

The tour includes 3 beautiful cenotes, which are the following: Chelentún, Chacsinicché and Bolonchojol.  Chelentún is the first cenote of the route. The access to the cenote will be easy thanks to the wooden rustic ladders descending for about 20 meters among the plants and trees.The water of the cenote will be deep, blue and extremely clear. Chelentún is the only one that has a shallow water part. Cenote Chacsinicché is the second cenote to visit. Currently, it has the form of a jar although with time, it is likely to be surrounded with vertical walls, as the roots of the trees around the cenote are constantly growing. As a result, the shape of the cenote is modifying. It has comfortable wooden stairs, which descend about 20 meters and reaches the level of the water. The indigo blue color of the water, as well as its transparency will impress you for sure. Cenote Bolonchojol will be the last and least accessible cenote. To enter, you must descend wooden vertical stairs for about 15 meters. Bolonchojol is the so-called "covered" type of cenote, its dome allows the rays of the sun to pass only through the small holes, causing the water to take on colors from turquoise blue to emerald green, giving it a beautiful and mystical view. This cenote is listed as one of the most beautiful cenotes of the Yucatan.

After the cenote route, have lunch in the beautiful city of Izamal. This colonial city is known as the "City of the Three Cultures" as it combines features of its pre-Hispanic past, the colonial period and the present time. Izamal is a beautiful colonial town founded in the middle of the 16th century on the ruins of an ancient Mayan city. Its most important construction, the convent complex of Our Lady of Izamal, was built on the ruins of a Mayan temple called Pap Hol Chac. Make an overview around this Yellow City and then head back to your hotel.
