Cenote comes from the Mayan word d’zonot.
A Cenote is a reservoir of spring water located in characteristic geological depressions. It is part of the aquifers since they are interconnected between underground galleries.
The cenotes form ecosystems, highlighting the great flora and fauna richness in and around them, maintaining their own connectivity with other ecosystems, through underground galleries that in many cases reach the sea.
the cenotes are connected, with a large diversity of habitats such as jungles, mangroves, wetlands, reaching the Reef, which allows us to affirm that there is an important underground system.
