Dive Term of the Day

CENOTE: A cenote (from Yucatec Maya dzonot or ts'onot, meaning 'well') is a sinkhole with exposed rocky edges containing groundwater. It is typically found in the Yucatan Peninsula and some nearby Caribbean islands. The term derives from a word used by the low-land Yucatec Maya to mean any location with accessible groundwater. Commonly dove by cavern and cave divers. Generally found in Tulum, Akumal, and Playa del Carmen.
