Ena is a little too exhausted for the next dive in the Gran Cenote, but I don’t wanna miss this experience. According to the name, the Gran Cenote is a very large and impressive cenote – a bit similar to Dos Ojos – but not only interesting for cavern and cave divers, but also for snorkelers. It is part of the Sac-Aktun-System, which means “White Cave” in Maya and just about 4km from Tulum towards Coba. The cenote has only a max. depth of 10m, yet good buoyancy control is necessary because of many narrow passages and plenty of stalactites and stalagmites reaching into the cave.
The rest of the evening is quite similar to the one the day before. First we have a siesta and then we look for a nice restaurant for dinner. Meanwhile, the drizzle started changing into a storm. Just as we find a restaurant that looks nice and sit down, we have a power outage on our side of the road. No cooked food, no daiquiris, no margaritas. But hey! You don’t need a mixer for a mojito .
* Overall, I believe that you can have better visibility at good weather in the cenotes thanks to better light, but with such rainy weather we made the best out of the situation
