They say Azul cenote is the biggest cenote in Mexico, 600 feet across and 290 feet at the center. The geological formations look more like a moon-scape with submerged trees populated by schools of live bearing, fresh water fish. At 100+ feet, divers can look up and see swimmers above but not the bottom. During the first dive, diver will drop down through the blue-green water to a ledge at 85-105 feet, than divers go along the wall in a multi-level dive. For the surface interval, divers can lounge in the sun or enjoy some fine local cuisine in local restaurant. The second dive will be conducted at 50-60 feet and often divers make a complete circuit of the cenote in 40 minutes. The water in this cenote is much warmer than it is commonly experienced in smaller cenotes.
