dive with us & discover the mayan cenotes
Angelita means Little Angel and is a deep pit sinkhole situated 17km South of Tulum. Divers descend 30m vertically in a gigantic well, 50m of diameter. The water is crystal clear and allows the sunlight to reach the unique looking sick white cloud of hydrogen sulfite that lays in the halocline. Divers have a free falling like feeling, just much slower, but so enjoyable! Huge amounts of sediment and collapse rocks create a central hill that just points its tip a few meters above the cloud, and to complete this incredible picture, a dead tree is lying there too that seems to have been put there in purpose! If you venture below the cloud, then you’ll enter a pitch-black chaotic realm of decaying organic material, before resurfacing in spiral in a multi-level profile.
