THE CENOTEs: Natural beauty & mystical essencE.

Millenary formations in the Riviera Maya, the Cenotes of Tulum and its region are a a gift from Nature. The word cenote comes from the Maya “dzonot,” which means “cavern with water”.

The Mayans considered cenotes to be sacred openings to the underworld, better known as “Xibalba”, a mystic place where gods, ancestors, and supernatural beings resided, and made offerings to them.

The Cenotes are natural pools in the rocks formed by the collapse of porous limestone bedrock. The limestone was gradually filtering rainwater into caves and tunnels, which turned into Underground Rivers, and then collapsed forming cenotes.

The fresh water is extremely quiet, welcoming you to a world of silence and rest. It is a great opportunity if you might be scared by the ocean.
