A man is sacrified to Chac by being thrown within a cenote.

Chac is the Maya rain deity, and this sacrifice is done to request an abundant rainy season.

Archeologists have found both ritual items and human bones in cenotes, suggesting that these natural well swere used by Maya for different purposes, including sacrifices.

Overall palette tones work well together, especially in the central part of the pic. 

Some places seem a bit raw though (for example the light green next to the dark greyish blue where the light hits the water), transitions could be smoothed with just a pixel of intermediary colour.
On the other hand, I think some colours (like the grey ones for the stalactites) are redundant: they increase your colour count without adding a lot of visual impact.

Love the falling water and the warm light on the god face statue, this kind of effects always look nice.
