DAY 1: Cuzama Cenotes – Homun Cenotes – Izamal
7:00 a. m.: We start our journey to go to the town of Cuzama, within the Ring of Cenotes, where we will board a “truck” (cart pulled by a horse), which will take us along the roads that were used to transport henequen in the haciendas. We will visit three cenotes; Chan-Ucil "little mosquito", Chak-Zinik-Ché "house of the red ant" and Bolon Chojol "nine mouse holes", where we can swim, dive and devote ourselves to the contemplation of these wonders of nature. The word cenote (ts’ono’ot), means in Mayan “cavity with water”.
We continue to the town of Homun, with more than 300 cenotes registered so far. There we will repeat the relaxation therapy in three more cenotes; Balmil, Hool-Kozom and Bebelchen, all of them, of the closed type. The caves of the cenotes are formed slowly by the dissolution of the limestone rock soils (karstification) and the fall of their walls and roofs.
The Ring of Cenotes, a State Geohydrological Reserve since 2013, is aligned with the shape of the crater of a meteorite that fell 65 million years ago, near Chicxulub, Yucatan. The Cuzama and Homun cenotes are located within it.
We continue to the beautiful colonial city of Izamal, which has been declared a Pueblo Magico "magical town" and where everything is colored in yellow. We will visit the Convent of San Antonio de Padua, founded in 1549 by the Franciscans and we will walk through the squares and streets of the center to reach the pyramid of Kinich Kak Mó "fire macaw with a solar face" in Mayan, one of the largest in Mexico. At night we will go back to Merida.
