Freediving: the magic of exploring the ocean on a single breath
Cenotes have an almost mythical quality – they were sacred to the Mayans who believed they were the gateway to the afterlife and used them for rituals, including human sacrifice. These photographs were taken at cenote called The Pit near Tulum. The light pierces the cool dark waters, providing an ethereal backlight to the caves and caverns below.Photograph: Eusebio Saenz de Santamaria
