Quintana Roo - Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico

I enjoyed a nice break from posting here while traveling in Mexico. While I was there, I got to dive and swim in cenotes, which are mostly fresh water underground caverns. The general theory is that they were formed when sea levels were much lower. These subterranean areas were very spiritually important to the mayans who lived here thousands of years ago.
