Photographer's Note

Cenotes are huge wells (30-50 meters in diameter) with refreshing water. The Mayas used some of them to throw people (especially young virgins) and prisoners-of-war into them as sacrifice. Today some of them serve for swimming in well tempered refreshing water. This one was near Chichen Itza in the state of Yucatan at N20.66122 W88.55065.
