Kukulkan is one of the most beautiful cenotes thanks to the sun-light effect it creates. It is located in Chac Mool. Kukulkan is 10m/32ft of an open area with a long sun light beam penetrating the water and the area around the cenote. This picturesque dive is perfect for beginners with max depth around 15m/49ft, and water visibility staying usually between 25-30m/82-100ft.The blurry vision is at its maximum due to the low ceiling, but the wideness allows a shift to the left or the right side of the front diver for better view. This cavern is made of pure white limestone that shines whenever a diver's light illuminates it.
