Sotuta de Peón
Sotuta de Peón, Yuc., Mexico
Swimming in a Mexican CenoteI looked down as I kicked my feet around in the cool crystal clear water, watching the light reflect onto my skin. The rocks below lit up in a rainbow of turquoise hues, growing darker the deeper they were. I swam out to the centre and looked up through a hole in the cave ceiling, where bright daylight was streaming in from above.
Here, in the middle of a field on an old sisal plantation in the heart of the Yucatan Peninsula, I had descended several sets of stairs to reach an underground pool. The Cenote at Sotuta De Peon is the most beautiful cenote I have ever seen.
