Riviera Maya is home to three of the world’s largest underwater cave systems. Its entry points are fresh-water limestone holes known as Cenotes (pronounced say-noh-tays). These otherworldly entryways were once believed to be sacred by the ancient Mayans. Even today, their natural beauty continues to elicit feelings of awe.
