Xibalba - described in sources such as the Popol Vuh, as a long dangerous path which always ends in a body of water under the ground. This was also the path followed by the souls of the dead.

Guillermo de Anda Alanis, Director of The Cult of Cenote Project, stands on a sacbe, mayan for "white road" he has discovered in an underground cave: it is almost 100 meters long, well cemented and constructed as the sacbe at nearby Chichen Itza. It runs from East to West, and turns where a body of water is found, to end in front of a stalactite and stalagmite column that resembles a Ceiba tree, a sacred Maya symbol.
