Cenotes are submerged caves formed during the last glacial period (approx. 1.5 million years ago). The icecaps on the poles expanded and the sea level went down by approximately 100 meters. During this time, rainwater carved pits in limestone bed creating space for the formation of stalactites and stalagmites. What we can see in, e.g., Grand Cenote makes us understand why the first divers had emotional tears in their eyes after they got out of the water. When ice began to melt again, the sea level increased and the seawater started pouring in creating a unique geological formation.
