The Yucatan Peninsula is a huge limestone platform where fresh water runs like rivers through underground cave systems.
Part of this land collapsed after the last ice age more than 8,000 years ago, creating sinkholes called CENOTES, derived from the Mayan word “Dzonot” which means sacred well and were considered the entrance to the mythical underworld by the ancient Mayas.
Especially associated with the Yucatan Peninsula Mexico, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings.
Today, three of the world´s longest underwater cave systems with a length of up to 129 km can be found at the Riviera Maya. One of them belongs to the most spectacular ones with 56 km – Dos Ojos, which means “two eyes”, describing the two circular shaped cenotes shining in daylight.
