Cenotes

A cave system of Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico, North America.


The Cenotes (sen-oh-tays) are a popular diving region on the Yucatan Peninsula surrounding Tulum. It is a cave and cavern system that formed from limestone sinkholes. The word Cenote comes from a Mayan word "Ts'onot" which refers to any place with accessible groundwater.

The cenotes offer spectacular experiences for cave and cavern divers with stalactites, stalagmites, and other fascinating and beautiful rock formations.

Becky Kagan Schott has a very well done video shot in the Cenotes that shows some of what you can see in this region.
