Cenote Angelita (little angel) is a dive site for advanced divers. It is a very deep cenote going town 60 m, with the halocline (border sweet/salt water) at a depth of 33 m. The dives are going down 40 m. Rotting plants in the cenote create hydrogen sulfide which also forms a layer in the halocline. This layer is like a fog and actually smells bad, not that it matters with the scuba gear. You must be certified as an Advanced Diver and logged at least 20 dives. This is a great location to train decompression diving under the guidance of your local instructor.
