Swimming inside Cenotes

Swimming inside Cenotes by www.carlosmeliablog.comSwimming inside Cenotes  |  Riviera Maya, Mexico  |  Cenotes are a natural pit, or sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes ground water underneath. Used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings. There are many of them all over Riviera Maya, but we visited one of the three located in the area of COBA only minutes away from the archeological site. There you can swim, enjoy the lovely caves and if you dear, try some jumps. Cenote water is often very clear, as the water comes from rain water filtering slowly through the ground, and therefore contains very little suspended particulate matter. The term derives from a word used by the low-land Yucatec Maya, “Ts’onot” to refer to any location with accessible groundwater. This could very easily become a new sport for me, Cenoting.!!! CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends  Continue reading Swimming inside Cenotes
