Cenote Chich I

Cenotes are naturalmade wells and there are four different types. The first are the underground cenotes which are completely underground, like small lakes inside a cave. The other are underground cenotes which have a whole in their roof, where sunlight can come inside. Third there are the ones that doesn't have a roof at all. And the last are completely open, almost as lakes. You can find cenotes all over the Yucatán peninsula, and they were very important to the Mayas. There were not so many rivers so they used the cenotes as their watersource. They also had sacred cenotes where they did their sacrifices.
