Gran Cenote Tour 4

Gran Cenote

The name does say it all, this large cenote is one of the most popular diving and snorkeling areas in the Riviera Maya. Snorkel inside of this huge cave system without ever diving under the water. Huge stalagmites, stalactites, and columns are yours to be seen by just sticking your face into the water.
A 10 min drive to Grand Cenote just outside of Tulum that we will be visiting. It is one of the most unique diving and snorkeling sites which is an incredible experience everyone who visits the Riviera Maya must do.

Duration: 2 hours

More on Cenotes
A cenote is a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. Especially associated with the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings.

The term cenote derives from a word used by the low-land Yucatec Maya — ts’onot — to refer to any location with accessible groundwater. A Cenote is a common geological formation in low latitude regions, particularly on islands, coastlines, and platforms with young post-Paleozoic limestones that have little soil development.
