Traveling to Hubiku Cenote: Rivera Maya

By Thedreamery

 Traveling to Hubiku Cenote: Rivera Maya Before making our way to the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza {Part I and Part II}, we had the amazing experience of swimming in the Hubiku Cenote. Hubiku, the ancient Mayan word meaning “Great Lord”, is a magical cenote {a sinkhole created from rainfall}, and sacred place once thought by the Mayan people to be the entrance to the underworld. I’ve heard and seen so many amazing things about this wonder, I couldn’t wait to experience it for myself.

We were welcomed by Mayan warriors before taking a magical swim in the most crystal clear water I’ve seen, and one of the most beautiful natural wonders. I remember closing my eyes feeling like I was floating, listening to the birds flying, feeling natural sunlight shining through the opening above and in complete wonder and amazement that I was having this once in a lifetime experience, although I know I’ll be back.

So much history about ancient civilizations, that I was always excitedly curious everywhere we went. After our quick swim, we made our way to learn how authentic Tequila is made, and even enjoyed ourselves a sampling of different aged tequila. My favorite, the almond, but brought home a three-year old barrel aged and coffee infused one I can’t wait to mix a refreshing summer cocktail with. In just one day, I engulfed myself with rich culture and magnificent natural wonders, the perfect way to start our Mexican travels.

It’s been a month since my trip to Mexico, and there isn’t a day I don’t wish that instead of abiding by corporate life scheduling I was getting out in the world and sharing more about my travels. I’ll find the balance soon enough, perhaps I need to tap into the Mayan spirits once more for motivation and light.
