The Cenotes are depressions on the ground, formed as the result of a sinking oh the cave or cavern ceilings which then reveal running water. The Cenotes can be found above the ground or remain under the earth. This structure is formed by chalky layers which are extremely permeable. This allows all the rain water to slip down the slope creating a power over the rock and creating underground galleries. The Maya thought that the Cenotes were the doors to another world of happiness and eternity. That it was a window to communicate with the underworld. The Cenotes represent unique values because they are considered windows of knowledge, namely biological, geological, hydrological, archaeological and historical.
