  • Duration: 6 days/ 5 nights
  • Price in DBL p/ person: 890 USD


Yucatan is famous for the world's largest system of underground reservoirs with mazes and numerous craters from 2 to 20 meters of width. These craters are called cenotes (cenote means "something deep"). They were the only sources of fresh water for the Maya settlements in the most territory of Yucatan. Currently, the majority of villages are also located next to the cenotes.

In the north-western part of the Yucatan cenotes are located in an arc along the tectonic faults of the meteorite crater Chicxulub formed by a meteorite impact that caused the extinction of dinosaurs, according to scientists. The wells located on this arc differ from all the other cenotes with its depth that reaches to 150 m; they have vertical walls, so they are called shaft cenotes. A layer of dissolved hydrogen sulfide formed during the decay of organic matter lies in many of them at depth of 30-40 m.
