Information about Cenotes

Due to its geological composition, the Yucatan Peninsula reacts as a type of sponge, when it rains, by absorbing all the moisture. The water that seeps through the soil begins to dissolve, giving way to caverns that can be partially or completely flooded, and when one of these caverns collapses due to erosion, the cenotes are born.

The formation of cenotes can last hundreds of thousands of years. There are open, semi-open, ancient, and cavern cenotes, classification depends mainly of age.

These crystalline springs, connected by a network of underground rivers and which by nature can vary in shape and characteristics, are virtually unique to the Yucatan peninsula.

Cenotes were considered a source of life for the Maya as they provided water, the vital liquid, represented an entrance to the other world and center of communion with the gods. The word cenote comes from the Mayan dzonot, which means cave with water.

In the Xenotes Tour by Experiencias Xcaret, you will visit four different types of cenotes considered sacred to the Mayan culture that also offer fun activities like kayaking, snorkeling, zip-lines and rappelling.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the majestic and refreshing cenotes of Cancun and Riviera Maya!
