It’s raining again*. On our schedule today are the cenote Angelita and the Gran Cenote.
Angelita, “little angel” in English, is a unique and rather unusual cenote experience. Actually, Angelita is more for more experienced scuba divers (AOWD or 30+ dives), but even with an OWD from Germany this is not an issue, as all of your training dives are in worse conditions and much lower visibility in lakes. Verena may therefore also dive with us… and it sure would be a pity if she missed Angelita.
Die picturesque cenote resembles a circular lake and is about 60m deep. Once you dive down about 10m, you look down at a swirling layer of hydrogen sulfide at about 30 meters, which looks like a huge cloud. Dead tree trunks and branches reaching out from it makes the whole sight kinda spooky . Since the density is changing at that level, we put in a little air in the BCD and descend down slowly. Below the cloud is salt water… and absolute darkness. During our slow ascending through the cloud again our fins create swirls on the sulfide layer. We spirally follow Carlos along the walls to a depth of 10m and then pass through a small cave. That is a scuba dive location you shouldn’t miss.
