At Cenote Dos Ojos (“two eyes” in Spanish), cavern divers swim between two large cenotes, know as the “East Eye” and the “West Eye”. The cavern dives at Cenote Dos Ojos are packed with cave formations, such as stalactites which hang like frozen lightening bolts above the divers heads. Entire walls are covered with formations known as draperies – stone waterfalls that have ceased to flow thousands of years ago.
So dense are the formations at Cenote Dos Ojos, that a diver can not help but imagine how the cave must have been as it was forming, with water dripping and formations growing in all directions. A dive in Cenote Dos Ojos provokes thoughts of the great force, energy and time required to create such a magnificent place.
