Cenotes are characteristic of Mexico and Central America. They are found more particularly in the Yucatan Peninsula where there are more than 3000 of which only 1400 are recorded and studied. The term comes from Maya “dzonot” or “ts’onot” and means “sacred well”. Indeed, cenotes were very important to the Mayans.


They were the only way to find pure water in this limestone plain of Yucatan, completely devoid of water. They were also sacred places, intended to receive offerings.
