THE PIT (30M-99FT) AND DOS OJOS (150USD + CENOTE FEE).
The Pit is known as the king of cenotes. It's a massive sink hole with 2 hydrogeological effect:
1) halocline: where the fresh water coming from the rains meet salt water sneaking in the limestone through flooded caves, natural harmony generating surrealistic visual distortion thanks to the mixing of two different gradient pressures.
2) hydrogen sulfide cloud: organic matter like fruits and leaves getting decomposed end up at 27M (90FT) creating a dense grey cloud. It seems like a Tim Burton's movie.
In both cases you should keep calm and realized that you might not be under nitrogen narcosis, or having an issue with your mask, it looks surreal but don't panin it´s organic.
Regarding the seasson we can either start at the Pit or Dos Ojos, taking advantage of sun's position to enjoy more the light beams.
We do a 40 min dive at the Pit (if your gas consumption allows it)
We bite and drink something, get a rest, and we go to Dos ojos. Regarding your level i'm going to suggest if we should go to the Barbie Line or the Bat Cave line. On average this dive it´s 45min and it feels adventurous because we follow a life line throughout flooded passages.
