We will be headed into the jungle today, for snorkeling in a clear water cenote. You will get to see fish, underwater caves and more. After our swim, we will chill out and have class on Marketing. Relaxing during the mid part of the day because tonight, we are headed to private, non tourist caves. We will split into groups and one group will swim in the dark caves and the other group will shoot the models. We will be switching after an hour. The cave is filled with candles and has a very lost pirate feel to it. You will also be part of a Mayan smoke ceremony to honor the guardians of the cave.
