Cenotes are natural bodies of water formed by the weathering of limestone over millions of years. The result is subway caves and caverns that have been filling with water due to the filtration of precipitation. Its formation is due approximately 65 million years ago when a meteorite of 10 km in diameter fell in the north of the Yucatan Peninsula, it was almost as big as Mount Everest, causing the extinction of the dinosaurs, the extreme speed with which the asteroid landed was 20 kilometers per second, 20 times faster than a bullet and was released in the form of 100 teratons of TNT, a billion times more than the bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The cenotes in Yucatan are mystical, millenary places and were revered by the Maya people, they represented the main source of fresh water in a region that has no lakes and suffered long periods of drought. Thus, as a means of survival, almost every Mayan village settled near a cenote, so that they had an assured supply of drinking water. These formations were also important for mystical and religious reasons. The Maya believed that cenotes could be portals to the underworld, thus a way to communicate with the gods. Archaeologists have found remains of religious ceremonies that took place in the cenotes in Yucatan, including human sacrifices.
