The cenotes of Sac Actun whose name means ”white cave” is one of the most impressive systems in which you can dive. Knowledgeable divers who have already made more than one dive will be delighted to visit.

When Sac Actun was found, very important archaeological remains were discovered. A very high amount of fossils were also found, which led to the idea of calling the system a ”pet cemetery” for a long time, but the idea was finally discarded.
