The ancient Maya believed the cenotes were gateways to the Underworld. Cenotes are more like rivers because of the subterranean currents that circulate the water.
In the Yucatan Peninsula that have been recorded over 2,500 cenotes out of an estimated total of 6000.
|Cenote Water Mirror|
"Cenotes, or dzonot Maya, are caverns with pools of fresh water, which formed millions of years ago. When the Peninsula was lifted up out of the sea, it brought with it the limestone structure of the sea bed, creating a very loose surface that filters water." When it rains the ground absorbs the water like a sponge filtering the water. Over the years the rock dissolves and forms caves that flood, making pools of water which are cenotes.
