  • Cenotes are surface connections to subterranean water bodies… Thousands of years ago underwater caves started to collapse and gateways to the river system were opened creating sinkholes called Cenotes.
  • The word “Cenote” comes from the Mayan term “D’zonot”, which represents a subterranean cavity that contains permanent water.
