Stopping By (A) Sink-Hole On A Sunny Morning. On The Road To Chichen-Itza.

March 7, 2008

This sink-hole (cenote) is a couple of hundred feet deep, very clean and clear and a swimmer’s delight. Those are plant tendrils hanging down.
Cenotes are the result of caves collapsing, forming holes in the ground with water in the bottoms of the holes. Because the limestone has so many holes in it, there are no major rivers throughout the entire Yucatan Peninsula. Water runs underground.

Looking up from the sink-hole.

Underground steps to the water.

Adventurous folk jump into the water from one of the lower ledges. Jumping from the top is forbidden.
