At Cavelands ecolodge, there is a small cenote. Only 500 meters away, the Xunaan-Há cenote. The Xunaan-Há cenote is beautiful in the morning for swimming and snorkeling.
The word cenote comes from the Spanish conquistadores. The word is transformed from the Mayan words Tzo not, which means fresh water well or hole in the ground. A cenote is a subterranean cavity containing permanent water. Caves and caverns are connected through underwater basins and rivers and end up in the ocean. These immense underground water systems function as the second biggest fresh water reserve of all Mexico.
