The Cenotes of Cancún offer a chance to go swimming in natural spring waters in pools caused by limestone sinkholes, which offer a truly natural experience, unlike any beach swimming. Cenotes can be underground and enclosed in a vast cave system, underground semi-open with an open roof to the sky, or open above ground and outdoors. All of these varieties can be found in Cancún. 

    Check out some of the best natural swimming holes you can find and have a jungle swim on your next holiday.

    Explore a maze of 7 swimming holes

    Cenote Siete Borcas offers a deep, calm pool of water fed by an underground river in a cave system along the Ruta De Los Centoes.

    Above the cenotes you can climb a watchtower to get a panoramic view of the jungle. You can also walk the calm, dark passageways between pools and relax in the silence. It's just about a half hour north of Cancún.
