Cenotes and Caves
You will visit beautiful caves and cenotes on your ATV Explorer
Motorcycle Jungle Tour in Playa del Carmen. The eastern half of the Yucatan
Peninsula, Mexico, is home to thousands of caves and natural springs called
cenotes. The ancient Mayans considered them sacred entrances to the
spiritual world. No visit to this region would be complete without a trip to one
of these palm-lined, crystal-clear, freshwater pools.
The Yucatan peninsula was originally under the ocean, and the
region's limestone foundation is fossilized coral beds and ocean floor. There
are no above ground rivers in this area, all of the ground water sinks through
the porous limestone and travels to the sea in underground rivers. Parts of the
limestone weakened over time and collapsed, leaving sinkholes filled with water.
Locally around Playa del Carmen these pools are called cenotes.
During the ice ages, portions of the underground rivers dried up
and water dripping through the limestone left mineral deposits in beautiful
formations. Decorations - stalactites and stalagmites - formed in the caves and
caverns, and were covered with water when the rivers began flowing once again.
Maya used the cenotes for water - both for drinking and irrigation - and in
religious ceremonies. Some of their cities were built around cenotes or wells
dug down to the ground water. Divers have explored the cenote at Chichen Itza
and have found offerings the ancient Maya made to the gods. Among them copper
and gold necklaces, pottery, jade beads, and skeletons of both sexes and all
ATV Explorer Motorcycle Jungle Tour takes you swimming in one of the most
beautiful cenotes near Playa del Carmen. The water is clean, sheltered from the
sun by sheltering cavern roof. It is so clear that the stalagmites on the bottom
look like they are just under the surface, when the truth is they are more than
60 feet down!
A highlight of the jungle tour is a trip into an ancient cave. This cave used
to be a cenote, but dried up centuries ago. Near the entrance is a burial site
of an ancient Maya priest.
