Snorkelling a Cenote in Tulum

Dos Ojos ('two eyes')The Maya Riviera down on the Caribbean Mexican Coast is home to some of the country’s best kept secrets – cenotes. Cenotes are underwater caves, and there are more than 150 forming part of the network along the Riviera. You can dive or snorkel them, and I had a commission to write a piece for CNN Traveler about the experience. Inside each cenote are huge formations that are created by the rain leaking through the rock above. Each formation grows 1cm every five years!
