When you reach your limit of fun in the sun on the beautiful white sand beaches of Cancun and the Riviera Maya, cool off by jumping into a cave full of fresh ground water and swim around hundreds of stalagmites and stalactites that date back thousands of years.

Cenote, that is a familiar word, right? Well, maybe not. Unless you have traveled extensively on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula or have lived here, the chances of you knowning what a cenote is, let alone how to pronounce it, are slim. Cenote, pronounced, /sɛˈnoʊteɪ/, is a cave that collapsed upon itself thousands of years ago. Filled with stalagmites and stalactites, these geological phenomena do not sound much different from other caves.
It is low season. This is the time many take advantage of the low-season vacation deals while others miss out by staying home. Maybe those who chose to stay home fear hurricane season or it is simply because they don’t want the chance of rain to spoil their sunbathing time. Regardless, there is one more natural phenomenon that takes place this time of year, crab invasion. No, it is not a reason to avoid travel but it is absolutely fascinating and rather endearing.
The Yucatan Peninsula, a place full of natural beauty and ancient culture, is home to the popular vacation destinations, Cancun, Riviera Maya and Cozumel. With the birth of Cancun in the early 1970s there was a great boom in tourism causing the region to grow at a rapid rate that may have been too fast for its own good. It was in this era of the 1970s that not many places throughout the world were actively concerned with environmental protection, perseveration or sustainable living. However, in retrospect, like many other vacation destinations, the Yucatan Peninsula has seen the light and has become very active in these missions.
Dreams do come true. This is especially the case for children with special needs living in the Yucatan Peninsula. Thanks to Hacienda Tres Rios Nature Park and Spa in the Riviera Maya and the Mexican television network, Fundación Televisa, a group of special needs children were given the opportunity to partake in outdoor and adventure activities not normally available to them.
It employs all five senses simultaneously or one by one. It brings out the inner child and reconnects you with nature. It is the sense adventure tour at re Hacienda Tres Rios Nature Park and Spa in the Riviera Maya.
