The Mayas called them ‘dzonot’, which the conquering Spaniards translated as ‘Cenote’. Cenotes are sinkholes, underwater rivers, caves or caverns. They were the sacred places of the Mayas because they represented the entrance to the underworld, also they used the cenotes for water irrigation, drinking and in religious ceremonies. You can find many cenotes aroun Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
