This is an excellent example of the natural collapse formation of virtual sinkholes. Fortunately, is no longer used to wash taxi cabs alongside the highway to Coba, hence its popular name of Carwash, but it is a wonderful place for swimming and diving. Depending on the weather, sometimes it is so deep that the entire cenote is like a large crystal clear swimming pool, sparkling with a lush green bottom.
