The Mayan believed that some actions purified their bodies and soul. One of then was bathing in a cenote. Cenotes are holy places for the Mayan culture. Another action was going up a pyramid (religious place for Mayan culture). And if those 2 actions were performed on same day, the benefit would be maximized.

I can only say that i went up pyramid and bathed cenote on same day, so i came purified from Mexico!!
