About Yal Ku and the Cenotes of Tulum
Thousands of years ago, ocean levels began to drop to where they are today. The movement of water over centuries created holes and gaps in the landscape, some of which were close enough to oceans to retain water. These connected yet mostly landlocked bodies of water are known as cenotes. The greater Cancun region is home a number of cenotes famous for their natural beauty, incredible geologic formations (including easy-to-explore underwater caves). Yal Ku lagoon is home to a wide range of wildlife and is safe to snorkel for swimmers of all ages. You’ll get the chance to snorkel at Yal Ku and at one of the many cenotes near Tulum on our Cenotes Tulum Tour here at Weddings Tours.
