The Yucatan peninsula is home to the largest underwater cave system in the world. Cenotes are natural sinkholes which form from limestone and fill with filtered rainwater, serving as a connection to this subterranean world. Cenotes were considered a place to communicate with the gods by the ancient Mayans 💧✨
