Do you know something about “cenotes”?
The coastal area between Playa del Carmen and Tulum has a thin limestone surface that allows rain water to filter through the ground. Over the centuries, a system of underground rivers has been created through which the water flows to the Caribbean Sea. In fact, there are no above ground rivers in the region, except the Hondo River which forms the border between Mexico and Belize.
In some places, the roof above these waterways has weakened and collapsed over time. These natural cavities or sinkholes are called cenotes, from the Maya dzonot, and have been an important source of fresh water since the days of the ancient Maya.
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.
