Horse Ride to a Cenote
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
A wonderful horseback ride through the hacienda lands to a beautiful cenote, where you can bathe and enjoy a delicious picnic under the shade of a tree.
The horseback tour begins in Hacienda Temozon. From there, ride 9 km to Hacienda Uayalceh, which dates from 1653. Now in ruins, this hacienda was one of the admired during its moment of maximum splendour due to the extent of its lands and the sumptuousness of its buildings. Continue your ride for 7 km, following the traces of the ancient narrow-gauge railroad tracks that covered Yucatan, to reach Kankirixche cenote. Refresh yourself with a bathe in this marvellous semi-open cenote, which has fascinating formations of stalactites and roots extending from the roof to the water. Its clear waters allow excellent visibility for snorkelling. Enjoy a prepared picnic under the shade of a tree before returning by road to the hacienda.
