Chansinic’che cenote, Cuzamá (Yucatán, Mexico)


Cenotes, or underground rivers, are naturally formed wonders created by the filtration of water through the limestone surface. They are sources of plentiful crystalline water and can be found only in the Yucatan Peninsula, Florida and the island of Cuba. The Mayans consider these ‘sinkholes’ sacred and gifted by the gods. In Chansinic’che cenote (“Tree with Small Ants”) the water is dark and very deep and cave formations are quite amazing as the giant roots of a tree growing right down into water.
