What's A Cenote?
Cenotes are essentially large sinkholes or caves, usually found in sedimentary limestone rock, that have filled with cool, clear groundwater and rainwater over time. Typically created when a cave collapses on itself, Cenotes can be open-air cenotes (the roof has completely collapsed) or a cave cenote (most or all of the roof remains). Many cenotes are home to various fish, plant life and even turtles! Throughout the Yucatan Peninsula, thousands of Cenotes have become popular places for locals and travelers to cool off from the jungle heat. Here are the BEST cenotes in Playa Del Carmen, Tulum, Cancun and Valladolid.
