|Cenote Dos Ojos|
When I first jump into the water, the fresh water immediately woke me up, lucky to have my hood with me as it gets colder in the dive. This is my first fresh water dive, I sank like a rock. We were told to kept our buoyancy in control. A few minutes at the beginning to get our buoyancy right and pre-check then off we go. We were told to follow the DM in line one after another and stay close (at least visible distance) Since I was more experience, I was asked to be at the back of the line. The DM is very careful to ensure that I was always visible by him. The initial feeling was a bit scary when I see nothing but my little torch light, after my eyes got adjusted to the dimness, I started to notice the bottom, wall and the surrounding stalactite and stalagmite. We surfaced a few time into different cavern, the maximum depth was only around 8m. The lights penetrating into the huge cavern made it looks so surreal.

The experienced was unforgettable, there are so many cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula if only I had the time and money to explore. Each one is unique in it's own way. Perhaps one day I will make it back.
