- Kukulkan: In this same system there is a different entrance to Cenote Kukulcan. You need to walk approximately 30m/100ft. As soon as you start the dive, a whole curtain of laser beams will take your breath away. Once you cross through this curtain you will be able to see it from a distance as you see the reflection of bubbles on the ceiling. If you look close into the walls you can find beautiful crystals and some fossils. The deepest area of the dive goes through a very thick halocline giving you the effect that the surface of the water is just above you. It is a great dive on sunny days.
