You then enter a huge cavern through a huge opening and BOOM you’re surrounded by thousands of crystal stalactites everywhere. We then surface inside an air dome where you can see how the jungle feeds, fossils, stalactites and roots covering the ceiling. 
After leaving the air dome we move on to another open cavern, through a wide tunnel then back out Cenote Little Brother.

cenote buoyancy rule

Buoyancy control is most important. Frog kick and stay 2m/6ft of the bottom. Be quick to adjust your buoyancy when going up or down to avoid crashing.

Cenote Facts

  • Caverns in this area started to form 1.8 million years ago.
  • They were formed by the dissolution of limestone by contact with the slightly acidic rain.
  • During the last Ice Age, these caves were dry. Animals and humans took shelter in them. Many caves contain fossils of ancient humans & animals.
  • To the Mayans, cenotes were sacred entrances to the Mayan underworld: Xibalba.
  • Cenotes, with the rain, are the only sources of fresh water on the Yucatan Peninsula. There are no rivers or lakes, the limestone is too porous.
  • There are thousands of cenotes and thousands of miles of these tunnels in the Yucatan Peninsula.
  • The Sac Actun System, which includes the Dos Ojos cenotes is the longest underwater system in the world with 364 km of tunnels and caves.

Cavern Diving Facts

  • Cavern diving is a safe and once in a lifetime experience if all rules and regulations are observed by all.
  • When cavern diving, you should always see light from the exit.
  • Maximum penetration distance is a linear 200 feet / 60 meters from the surface.
  • Always follow a guide line no more than 3 feet / 1 meter away so you can use it as a physical guide if you lose all visibility.
  • NEVER let any cenote guide take you away from the line if you don't see the exit or the surface unobstructed and in plain view.
  • Most important rule in cavern diving is that anybody, at any time, for any reason can stop the dive. If you don't feel safe, call it !
