When in Valladolid, you can cool off in Cenote Xkeken, a spacious limestone chamber with a natural pool.

Drive or cycle from Valladolid to the vast cavern, where you can swim and snorkel in the large sinkhole. The shady cove offers a great getaway from the heat, while interesting stalactites hanging from the ceiling, sprinkled with rays of sunshine, add to the cenote's pleasant aesthetic.
