Kukulcan cenote / Mexico

Kukulcan cenote
   The entrance to Kukulcan cenote is located several hundred meters from Chac-Mool. Kukulcan cenote is a part of a cave system. Diving runs through a huge cave that surrounds the cenote. The dive starts through a beautiful lake and it reaches the halocline at 10m/32ft depth.
   As divers cast light of their torches on places where fresh and salt water combine, they can see a marvelous light projection on the surrounding walls. While descending one shouldn’t miss the moment of seeing all rainbow colors on the ceiling. Kukulcan and Chac-Mool cenotes are connected with a narrow passage, the use of which is allowed only to cavern divers.
