Meet the other side of Puerto Morelos.

Have you ever heard of the Chicxulub ring? The ring of cenotes that, according to some studies, surrounds the impact of the asteroid that extinguished the dinosaurs more than 70 million years ago. These cenotes were very important for the Maya, since they were considered sacred places; in the cenotes the Mayans carried out different types of rituals, besides that they considered them like the door to the underworld.

Near Puerto Morelos there is an astonishing cenote corridor that extends approximately 35 km towards Leona Vicario. This corridor is better known as “The Cenote Trail” where you can find a great variety of underground rivers connected to each other.

The artist assembles manifestations of perspective, illusion, and geometry along with the techniques of drawing and classical painting. Among the paintings that you can observe and interact in this museum are: Catching the Wave, Flying over the Bosphorous, Breeders’ Cup, among others.
