During the storm season, it’s important to take precautions before leaving home. It is quite common during this time to have daily afternoon rains with strong gusts of wind. If you carry an umbrella with you, make sure it’s of good quality so that it doesn’t turn inside out as soon as you open it.
Something else to consider: after days of heavy rain, some cenotes may be forced to close due to the increase in water level. If you’re not sure, contact them before visiting, or send us a message and we’ll do our best to assist you.
