For many Western travelers,the term cenote is still unfamiliar and even its pronunciation – si-no-tea - seems full of wonder. These sinkholes can be found throughout Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and are formed over time as the limestone bedrock erodes to expose fresh groundwater beneath. Scuba divers enjoy descending into what resembles a large natural swimming pool,which is also home to a variety of large indigenous sea and freshwater animals. The largest and most popular cenote in the region is known as Gran Cenote,,which is just a short jaunt up the brand new highway from the Cenote Calavera,which is a favorite among scuba divers.
The beach that lies beneath the ancient Mayan pyramid of El Castillo in Tulum is perhaps the post popular attraction,and the impressive Temple of the Wind also lies nearby. But the real gem when it comes to Tulum’s beaches can be found in the nearly 1o kilometers of soft white sand that cannot be found elsewhere on earth.
