The soil of the Yucatán Peninsula is unique in composition. It acts as a sponge when it rains. As the soil begins to dissolve, caverns are created. They can be partially or completely flooded and when they do collapse from erosion, a cenote is formed.
Tours are available to explore all four types of cenotes unique to the Yucatán, where you can revel in the beauty of these natural wonders and learn why the ancient Mayans considered them sacred shrines.
