All this happened because of the limestone bedrock, which doesn’t allow fresh water to accumulate above ground in rivers or lakes, instead, it collects it underground. And in the underground, because of the softness of the rock, erosions creates natural caves and tunnels, and here is where the water accumulates. At times, the bedrock collapses, reveling the cave underneath. This is how a cenote is created. In the Yucatan Peninsula, there are more than 6,000 cenotes. Maya people considered them sacred wells and then settled villages around these spiritual wells and believed that they were a portal to speak with the gods.
