Swimming in the cenote

Warnings or dangers Most cenotes stay underground, dark and mild. 

Here, the cenote is in the open air, and people uses it to swim, which is allowed. 

We did it, but I’m always afraid of stopped sweet waters, and warned the children to imitate me, never letting the water go up the neck, protecting ears, eyes and mouth. We had no problem, but Tito, two days later, appeared with the high traveller fever, locally called “Moctezuma’s revenge”. I think it was due to a salad, in next day lunch, but… not sure. It’s never too much, taking common precautions.
