Pet Cemetery cenote / Mexico

Pet Cemetery cenote
   The access to Pet Cemetery cenote is possible through Dos Ojos cenote 1km/0.6mi to the south of Xel-Ха. This cenote belongs to the second largest cave system in the world that is called Sac Actun. Pet Cemetery owes its name to the skeletons of various animals found there, one of which is a fossilized skeleton of an extinct prehistoric camel. There is also a chance of seeing spider monkeys at the entrance to this beautiful cenote located in the jungles. Pet Cemetery is a very shallow cave with average depth up to 3m/9ft. Divers always stay close to the surface, but there is not much light in the cave and it is quite dark there. It is one of the most popular cenotes with fragile white masses such as stalactites and stalagmites that create mirror effect in crystal clear water.
