Life has been very kid-centric lately with Birdie's friend Adriel visiting from Maine. Last week, we managed an after school trip to Cenote Azul, one of our childrens' favorite places. We packed a few towels, goggles and a picnic lunch. Everything you need for a great cenote day! Rob and I soaked up the sun while the kids explored the paths through the woods and made the leap from the big jump off point into the cold clear water. Making good use of some clear plastic bags that previous visitors had neglected to dispose of (grrr) Rob taught Cole how to bait the bags with quesadillas and catch the little fish that inhabit this watering hole. Feeding their already active imaginations, Birdie and Adriel found some small authentic ruins in the jungle as well as some more modern stelae, placed along the paths. An adventure around every bend!

With multiple easy entry points, the Cenote Azul is the perfect destination for families with children or those who are not the strongest of swimmers. This should definitely be on your list of "must sees" if you are the Riviera Maya with your kids. Admission is $50 pesos for adults $30 pesos for children. Fish food is available for purchase and I believe you can rent snorkel gear as well.
