Clear Waters

The thousands of cenotes dotting across the Yucatan peninsula were formed by the erosion or collapse of the limestone, opening up access to the groundwater below. Historically, they were a source of clean water and also offered a way to cool off as well as a place for sacrifices for the former Mayan empire.
