Cenote Cristal Sinkhole | Yucatán Mx

Cenote Cristal, the cenotes of the Mayan riviera are very close to the sea and that is why it is common to observe the particular “halocline” effect, which makes us look blurred under water, caused by mixing fresh and salt water.

Here you will find two cenotes together, facing each other divided by the road.
