 Los Cenotes, Fuente de Agua DulceLos cenotes son cavidades de formación natural que se producen por la erosión del suelo calizo que deja al descubierto el manto de agua subterránea. La profundidad varía y algunos miden 60 metros o más. En Bacalar existió un cenote que proveía de agua dulce, tal vez desde los tiempos prehispánicos hasta 1969. Se encontraba en la calle 16, rumbo al poniente pasando las torres de electricidad.Profesor Carlos Valdéz Chay (Pintor de Bacalar)Profesor Jesús Morales Rosas (Historiador)English:Cenotes, Fresh Water SupplyA "cenote" (well) is a natural cave shaped by erosion of the limestone layer. Generally the dome falls apart exposing the underground water source. Depth varies; some of them have 60 meters or more. There was a "cenote" in Bacalar that provided fresh water since the pre-Columbian time up to 1969. It was located in the 16th street west after the electric energy towers.English translation:Professor Carlos Valdéz Chay (Bacalar painter)Professor Jesús Morales Rosas (Historian)
