Cenotes, sacred springs of life

Cenotes, sacred springs of life in crystal clear water

If you’re the type of person that travels looking for new adventures and unique activities we recommend visiting the Route of the Cenotes near Puerto Morelos and swimming in the crystal clear waters of these beautiful caves that can be found in the heart of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The cenotes are underground caves that collapsed due to erosion and may be partially or completely flooded. They are formed through hundreds of thousands of years and are classified as open, semi-open, old and cavern-like, depending mainly on their age.

The word cenote has Mayan origin and comes from the term “dzonot”, which means cave with water. Formerly they were considered by the Mayan civilization as a source of life, entrance to the other world and center of communion with the gods.

The cenotes are connected by a network of underground rivers and have various shapes, allowing people to conduct various activities in them. Among these activities there’s snorkeling, cliff diving and scuba diving from cenote to cenote. Undoubtedly this is an experience that you can’t miss the next time you travel to Cancun or the Riviera Maya.
