Lak'ech Ala K'in "I am you, and you are me." Maya Greeting
Sacred Cenotes - Dzonot
"The sacred door to the underworld"
These magical bodies of water are connected underground, sometimes creating caves, open wells like in Dzibilchaltún and ponds in Chichén Itzá. There are two kinds of Cenotes; the young ones with rapid moving water and the old ones, with slower flow due to sediments or/and collapse.
- Two hundred and fifty million years of dramatic changes in sea level formed spectacular caves and caverns. Many were created by a meteorite impact.
- México is home of the 5 biggest caves registered in the world. Over 7,000 cenotes less than half being studied.
- Some of the Cenotes and caves in the Yucatan Peninsula have ancient Maya glyphs, paintings, ceramics and burials. In many of them we still can see the offerings from the Maya to their Gods. Please respect them. If you swim, do not use sunscreen, do not eat and do not be loud.
