On a hot, Mexican day we were led into the cool of a cavern and down well worn stone steps. The spiral staircase echoed and we could hear splashing and voices. Finally the stairwell opened to an stunning view. Cavern walls reached way up high where where sunshine poured in through a large opening. Ropes of green vines fell along the walls into the sapphire blue water, sparking from the sunshine.
We were told it was a bottomless pool, so if that made us nervous we shouldn't go it. My two friends didn't go in but I did. There are steps to one side that you can go up and dive from a higher place than the plateau around the swimming hole. I chose to dive in from the plateau. The water was deliciously cold and refreshing. It was amazing to swim in this cavernous pool; I felt like I was in the land time forgot.
Every sound echoed softly against the vines against the stone walls. It was delightful to swim lazily on my back, looking up at the greenery hanging down from the opening and the sun pouring in. It was a great way to cool down, and it was a wonderful experience. I will definitely do this again when I go. And there is a restaurant right next door, so after building an appetite swimming, you can grab a bite to eat.More
