playa del carmen - mexico
dive with us & discover the mayan cenotes
Calavera, literally The Skull, takes its name from the three holes featured on the ceiling of the sugar bowl like shaped sinkhole. It is the main entrance of the system Temple of Doom. The water entrance is performed by climbing down a ladder or by performing a 2m jump through the ceiling’s larger hole. The dive starts by dropping following the edge of a huge hill of sediment, along with amazing rays of light. The light show is spectacular seen from the bottom of the cavern, which is made of white phreatic rocks, dissolved into all possible shapes, and bellow the halocline. On their way back up, divers swim in spiral along the wall and until their reach the beautiful speleothems stained black and hanging under the ceiling to end this dive that has such a unique atmosphere.
