Yucatan's Caves & Caverns
Cenotes


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.

Incredible limestone formations

The dissolved limestone dripping into dry cave passages, over thousands of years formed an amazingly beautiful decoration of stalagmites and stalactites.

Thousands of these windows to the water table dot the Yucatan Peninsula providing access to a unique underground system mainly located in the area between Cancun and Tulum on the Riviera Maya.

Since the 1980´s, hundreds of these caverns have been explored and mapped by cave divers, and exploration and penetration still continues.

Remember it is forbidden to touch, move or remove any of those delicate and fragile formations remaining underwater for thousands of years, as they can be damaged permanently.

Turn the speakers on, lean back, and get fascinated!
