What are cenotes? At some point in time, sharks and whales were swimming where we now eat breakfast today. Thousands of years ago, sediments and coral reef started to accumulate and slowly created what we call today the Yucatan peninsula. Certain scientist explain it by a meteorite, other simply justify it by ice eras, but the sea level went down, leaving the peninsula like a cheese gruyere made out of calcareous matter. This porous ground acting as a filter with every rain drop, the cheese wholes slowly filled with water and the Cenotes were born.
