Yokdzonot Cave IV

Solution Caves are able to form because certain conditions allow it. Limestone, which comprises much of the bedrock of the Yucatan Peninsula is an essential ingredient. Rain water, as it falls from the sky, mixes with carbon dioxide to form a weak solution called carbonic acid. As this concoction seeks the water table below the surface, it dissolves the limestone. Over the course of many thousands of years the caves are formed. The same beautiful decorations that one might encounter in a dry cave such as stalactites, stalagmites, columns and halactites are all present here in the Yucatan Peninsula.
