Cenotes of the Yucatan

Cenotes of the Yucatan

Taken from the Mayan word, dzonot, meaning a well, cenotes are natural sinkholes, the result of collapsed limestone bedrock exposing the subterranean groundwater. They are found both inland and by the coast and can be either freshwater or saltwater.

Eating Out In the Yucatan

Mexicans are proud of their national cuisine which varies from region to region. The Yucatan is no exception with numerous local specialities happily rubbing shoulders with pan Mexican favourites and a wide selection of international options.
