Yaxunah is located within a unique landscape found in the Yucatan Peninsula and contains at least seven cenotes, as well as multiple caves and rejolladas. The surface of Yucatán consists of a large slab of marine limestone formed during the Cenozoic period and contains extensive Karst features. Since the Yucatan Peninsula has almost no rivers or lakes, the kars, or karst soil provides almost all natural access to groundwater.

The cool and clear water of Cenote Lol Ha creates a beautiful refuge in the middle of Yaxunah. The black earth of the cenotes supports a great variety of plants that require a more humid and dark environment. For example the “mata palo” often grows near the edge of the cenote with its long waffle-like roots reaching up to the water level. A wide variety of birds such as owls, swallows and the tho bird live in the large trees nearby or in the cenote. In addition squirrels, raccoons, armadillos and iguanas also inhabit the areas around the cenotes.
