What is a Cenote?
These secret underground caverns are formed when limestone caves in, leaving a hole in the earth that leads to a pool of, often gorgeous, turquoise-colored water. The Yucatan Peninsula alone is home to approximately 7,000 different cenotes. Most cave cenotes have fresh water that has been meticulously filtered by the earth, making them so clear and pure that you can see straight through the water to small fish frolicking in the plant life below. The Mayans revered cenotes because they were a water source in dry times; the name cenote actually means 'sacred well'. Mayans settled villages around these spiritual wells and believed that they were a portal to speak with the gods. Today, you can still see why cenotes held the Mayans in awe. Swimming in the pristine waters feels like stepping into prehistory, where giant tropical trees and vines form wild cathedral walls leading up to shafts of sunlight.
