Cenote El Jaguar, a natural wonder located in Quintana Roo

The state of Quintana Roo is a place full of natural wonders, one of which is the Cenote Jaguar.  Is located in the Mayan Community of Pac Chén, a hidden site for centuries that the Mayans venerated and cared for until today.

The Cenote Jaguar owes its name to the fact that its great vault gives it a resemblance to the skull of a jaguar, this being the most powerful animal in the Mayan culture, its entrance is the shape of the throat and it has two holes through which light enters. that resemble their eyes.

It has a depth of 30 meters, and in its depths the waters are salty since it is very close to the sea, it is located only 40 kilometers from the Caribbean, by descending approximately 13 meters you can enjoy its crystal clear waters, which hide large and exciting stories of great relevance among our ancestors since the cenote was considered a source of life with magical powers.

It also offers us large and mysterious caverns that are ideal for those who like diving, and you can admire catfish, blind shrimp as well as bats and a very common bird here called "To", which is similar to the quetzal and forms its nest inside of the caves, legend tells us that if you ever hear one sing it is because there is a cave nearby.

The exit from the cenote is through a ladder or by rope, or using the "Mayan elevator", which is a system based on pulleys with a block, and three people are in charge of raising those who visit it. It is recommended that you bring your own food since the place does not have a restaurant.
