cenote PET CEMETERY – MYSTIC RIVER
dive with us & discover the mayan cenotes
Is real Maya name is Sac Actun, the white cave. It is part of the second largest underground river in Mexico and the World, Sac Actun Nohoch Nah Chich. It is commonly called the Pet Cemetery because of the many animal remains and fossils that divers can enjoy along the way. The cavern line is called the Mystic River and runs through gigantic air domes, which features many collapses where the light can engulf and create amazing visual effects. The cave is one of the most beautifully decorated and is very shallow, with a bottom made of huge dunes of sediment, which are very easy to disrupt. The dive requires an excellent control of buoyancy.
