The Cenotes, mostly associated with the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, are large natural sinkholes created after the collapse of limestone bedrock. Cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings to their gods. Most of them are now open to the public for a swim in some of the most beautiful blue waters surrounded by large caves and impressive wild vegetation!
