This cenote is one of the deepest in the area, and is very unique, at the depth of 40 feet. 13 meters to 60 ft/19 meters you can see the Halocline (salt water mixing with fresh water). When you reach the depth of 100 feet/ 30 meters you encounter a cloud of hydrogen sulfur, its like flying through a cloud, the most beautiful and intriguing part of the dive is the way the light penetrates through the cenote, it reaches all the way down to the cloud, a 100 feet beam of light, it lights the whole cavern, where a jumbo jet can fit inside. At the celling of the cenotes you can see many stalactites, making a nice decoration, on the south part of the cenote, you can appreciate how a cascade used to run through there, when the water level was below where it is now.
