Before I went to Mexico, I knew what I wanted to see. The cenotes on the Yucatan Peninsula were on that wish list.
They used to be used by the ancient Mayan Indians as water sources and places for sacrifices, can you imagine?
There are no rivers at all on the Yucatan - all the water seeps into the lime rock, the cenotes. So they were the main source of fresh water for the Maya and other civilizations that inhabited this land.👌
Many Maya cities were built near large open cenotes.
The water in the cenotes is clear and you can see ten meters deep.😳
And the caves are filled with stalactites and stalagmites, sometimes it forms an entire forest filling most of such a grotto.
Archaeologists have found many thousands of ritual objects at the bottom of this cave, as well as about a hundred human skeletons estimated to be more than 1,000 years old.

Would you bathe there?
