Most locals know Blue Hole Park as a small park with a parking lot, and a beach. But in the dense forest there is actually a Blue Hole, or better a cenote. This is a collapsed cave which is water-filled. The groundwater flows through this opening and drains to the sea underground. It is not a spring, although during rain the rainwater flows in, so it is actually a swallow hole. It has vertical limestone walls and there are numerous stalactites on the wall, which is probably the reason why it is also called Blue Grotto. There is also a hidden entrance with a staircase, which leads down

The cenote is located in the northeastern corner of the Walsingham Nature Reserve. Follow Blue Hole Hill and turn right into the parking lot right before the dam to St. Davids island begins. It's a paved but narrow street and there is no sign, obviously frequented only by locals. A minute walk to the blue hole.
