Dive the Cenotes of Merida with Yucatan Dive Crew
Immerse yourself in the world of cenotes, originating from the Maya word ‘dz’onot’, signifying a ‘water-filled cavity’. This unique geographical feature is prominent in the northern region of the Yucatan Peninsula, where the highly permeable karstic rock allows rainwater to form a freshwater aquifer above a dense saline water mass from the sea.
The formation of these cenotes dates back millions of years when the Yucatan Peninsula lay beneath the sea, forming a shallow ocean bed. Subsequent ice ages witnessed the emergence of the Peninsula, creating a cave system developing amidst dense vegetation.
The acidic rainwater mixed with decaying plant matter helped dissolve the limestone, leading to the birth of these mesmerizing cenotes.
