Submerged in a shaded, quiet cavern, cenote divers can easily forget that they are deep in the Maya jungle. Divers are reminded of their location when they pass by cenotes that open to the trees and sky, such as Cenote Corral.
The sun pours in through Cenote Corral, creating a curtain of shimmering light that extends into the cavern. As divers swim through the light beams, they can look up through the cenote to see not only leaves and branches, but the roots of trees dipping down into the fresh water to drink. The experience is a bit like sitting under the dining room table as a child - seeing a familiar environment from an unusual perspective makes it new and interesting. On a cenote dive, divers see the jungle from the bottom up.
