This cenote is essentially a technical dive. Most of the dive is dark so light is required. There are 3 different water entrances to Chac-Mool system. On the side entrances there are Little Brother cenote and Kukulkan cenote. Coming through the main entrance it is possible to go directly to the Dome Room. Diving at this site is most suited for CMAS ** / AOW divers.
