CENOTE ( UNDERGROUND RIVER )
The word cenote is derived from the
mayan term “D’ zonot” , representing an underground cavity filled
permanently with water.
We will stop at Cenote CHOO-HA'.
Unlike any other destination,
Riviera Maya is unique not only because of its history and culture, but also
its geological composition. Land is very porous; the entire region is
basically a huge limestone shelf. Imagine this part of earth as a hefty
slice of Swiss cheese. Over the centuries, holes up and down the coast
filled with pristine water forming natural subterranean pools called cenotes,
which connect to an intrincate network of underwater caves and caverns. This
network’s underground rivers are said to be the longest system in the world.
Today scuba drivers navigate them, carrying beams of light that unveil
spectacular stalactites and stalagmites.
