Cenotes

Cenotes are a type of lake with a karstic origin. They can be found open, semi open or subterranean. In the Yucatan Peninsula there is a ring of those formations interconnected with the sea. In Homún there is a big concentration of cenotes like the Santa Bárbara, with an easy access. Here you will find a path connecting the three cenotes.

The Cascabel Cenote is an underground one. To get in you have to go down the stairs under a poplar, a typical marker of cenotes.

The Cenote Caksikín is semi open. In this one you will find roots and stalactites after going down stairs with direct access to the middle of the cenote, offering amazing views.

The Cenote Xoch’ is completely open. After going down the stone stairs you will find water; down here, the roots of a poplar are hanging offering an impressive image.
