A “Cenote” is the Spanish word for “Sinkhole,” and the Yucatan Peninsula is filled with them!
The Cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula are sinkholes that were formed over millions of years as the leeching of limestone rock took place below the surface of the earth in what is today known as Mexico — specifically the Yucatan Peninsula. A network of caves, some partially submerged by water, the cenotes are a playground for adventure seekers. Navigating the caves takes skill in both freshwater and saltwater diving, scuba, repelling and rock climbing. This adventure is not for the weak-hearted nor the inexperienced, but is an amazing adventure that everyone should be able to experience and see for themselves. Therefore, we at International Bellhop have put together this all-inclusive Yucatan Scuba Adventure of the Yucatan Cenotes. We hope you enjoy it!
