Tour of the southeast: Valladolid, Yucatán

We arrived in Valladolid, Yucatán for that evening's concert.

The next day we visited a cenote. According to Wikipedia, a cenote is a: 

deep natural pit, or sinkhole, characteristic of Mexico, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. Especially associated with the Yucatán Peninsula and some nearby Caribbean islands, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings. The term derives from a word used by the low-land Yucatec Maya, "Ts'onot" to refer to any location with accessible groundwater.

We swam in the cenote and even sang (we're a choir, what did you expect?)! It was a very cool experience.
