What is a cenote, anyway?

A cenote is a natural sinkhole or pit that forms when limestone bedrock collapses and exposes groundwater underneath. This term originated in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico and is derived from the Mayan word “dzonot,” which means “well.” Cenotes are often found in caverns and caves, filled with fresh water that has been filtered by the earth, making it clear and pure. These beautiful formations play a vital role in the ecosystem and were also considered sacred by the ancient Mayans, serving as water sources and sites for rituals and sacrifices.
