Cenote Azul – better to avoid these places on the weekends…

On our way south, heading from Playa to Tulum, we stopped at Cenote Azul. Lu had not seen a cenote, and we were happy for a break from the sea, in the fresh waters of a centoe.
This cenote is very different from the ones we have been to in Yucatan – it is a very big open centoe, so it’s not underground, and is actually more like a lake. And the water isn’t sweet! It’s salty…
We were there on a Sunday, so it was very crowded. And since the cenote is not underground, we had to search for shaded spots.
It was a nice stop for a swim, some snorkelling and a lunck-picnic, but would have been better during the week, with fewer people around…
