The Pit is an amazing sinkhole deep inside the jungle on an upstream branch of the Sistema Dos Ojos. The Pit, with a depth of 119 metres, is the deepest cenote in the State of Quintana Roo. This dive was an unforgettably beautiful experience.
In the past, before the dirt road leading to the entrance of The Pit and the stairs down to the water were built at the beginning of 2012, divers had to walk about 300 metres from the dirt road and then had to lower their gear about 7 metres to the water with ropes. These recent developments have facilitated access to this dive site enormously.
Amazing sun rays penetrate the Pit and a freediver kindly played amongst them providing an additional perspective to the images.
