Here are some other shots in the cenote. Thank you for your enthusiasm.



Notice the large stalactites near the diving platform.



A veiwing port from the upper levels of the stair case. My wife waving to the camera.



The stair way down to the pool.



Looking down from the top.



Plantlife growing in the suspended roots dropping from the roof.

Hey, Steve -

Welcome home....I was there, too. Didn't get as many good shots as you did.

Did you get to Ek Balam?

Looks like a spot from heaven thanks to the mystic atmosphere (regarding #1 somewhat misty, too) and intense colours! Thanks for sharing..

Thanks Kita, No, we did make it this time. We saw the sign go by as we traveled home on the tour bus though. Next time. There is always next time. right?
We had a fantastic trip. It couldn't have been better.

Ha ha, my wife says nice to meet you as well.
The mist you mention is actually from the condensation that kept forming on my lens. Our tour bus was air-conditioned and when I brought my camera outside into the warmer moist air it took about 20 minutes for it stop fogging up the lens. :lol:

Very lovely spot and shots.

Is this a natural beauty or man made?

Thank you Marbles.
The cenote's are a natural occurance. They are an erosional feature cause by the dissolving of the limestone bedrock by mild natural acids and underground rivers over hundreds of thousands of years. There are thousands of cenote's throughout the Yucatan. This one has had a staircase cut into the rock to reach the water level. It is now a tourist attraction. But, there are thousands of others still in there natural state.

Cheers,
Steve
