The Maya often build raised roads through the jungle called Sacbes. They often were many feet wide and were elevated from the jungle below by several feet. A Cenote is a natural sinkhole which developes in the limestone of the Yucatan peninsula. They were often used as a source of water. They are still used as swimming holes in modern times.

300 meters north of the Platform of the Jaguars and Eagles and the main plaza is a sacbe which leads to the Sacred Cenote. It is 60 meters wide (195 feet), 24 meters (72 feet) to the water lever, and approximately 13 meters (40 feet) deep. The water is very green.
