What makes a cenote dive special?
Cenotes are natural sinkholes resulting from the collapse of the limestone bedrock characteristic of the Yucatan Peninsula. Crystal clear fresh water runs gently through the cenotes which are filled with amazing underwater structures, including stalactites, stalagmites, columns and fossils. The play of light filtering from above and the halocline, which is the blurry water where fresh and salt water meet, create a unique experience for all divers.
