Cenote Sambulá: A Portal to Ancient Mayan World

Cenote Sambulá, set amidst the Yucatán’s enchanting landscape, is a captivating cenote – a natural pit or sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater. Revered in Mayan culture as sacred wells, cenotes like Sambulá were crucial to the survival of ancient cities like Uxmal and Kabah, providing fresh water in a region scarce of rivers and lakes.

Sambulá stands out for its astonishingly clear and pure waters, offering a glimpse into the underwater world.

This serene oasis not only connects visitors to the ancient Mayan civilization but also provides a tranquil spot for relaxation and reflection.

We ultimately didn’t head into the water and only soak our feet!
