Bat Cave / Mexico

Bat Cave
    Bat Cave is a cave that is hardly illuminated. This cenote consists of several halls and air passages filled with bats. These creatures, hiding among the stalagmites, are the decoration of this place. One should be able to keep on the water surface as there is practically a feeling of flying through the passages full of fragile formations called speleothems. Divers with cavern diving certificate can conduct more prolonged dives inside the other cave systems. The place is joined with 25 cenotes and is one of the longest underwater systems on Yucatan Peninsula.
