Mexico’s amazing cenotes.


Cenotes are deep water filled sink-holes formed by water percolating through the soft limestone above. Since the porous soil held little water, these underground bodies were extremely important to the Mayans. The Maya often built their cities around cenotes and used them for water, both for drinking and irrigation, and in religious ceremonies.

At Cenote Yaax-Ha your can swim and snorkel in the warm waters whilst admiring the stalactites and stalagmites. At Cenote Kankirixche the sunlight filters through the holes in the ceiling to create a magical feeling.
