Kayak, Repel, Snorkel and Zipline Through Cenotes at Now Sapphire!

Experiencing cenotes should be on everyone’s bucket list. These incredible geological formations, unique to the Yucatan peninsula, are formed over many years when rainwater dissolves limestone,¬†resulting in flooded caverns. Erosion causes these water-filled caves to collapse, revealing beautiful and mysterious cenotes to the outside world!
