Angelita is difficult to describe...you have to dive and experience it by yourself! It is different from other cenote dives because you dive only in the open water area. The specialty of this sinkhole is a thick layer of hydrogen sulfide at around 100 ft/30 m which formed through rotten vegetation and which separates the fresh water from salt water below. Out of this opaque artificial seeming surface rises the top of the collapsed cave ceiling, like a half moon shaped island with trees on it.
We perform a multilevel profile dive, ascending progressively, making circles around the cylinder. Just for experienced divers.
