BAT CAVE
The Maya were able to live and flourish during very dry periods of time because they had a great source of water supply from the unusual systems of natural wells connected with underground rivers in the northeastern Yucatan. This area has around six thousand of these wells which gave the Maya access to fresh water. The Spanish colonials named these underground wells for “Cenotes”, which is derived from the Mayan native word for the natural wells. The Bat Cave dive site is part of the Cenotes system “Dos Ojos”(meaning 2 eyes in Spanish) and is the darker of the 2 popular dive sites in the system, and is connected through an at least 61km long tunnel network to 25 other Cenotes. The bat cave is the perfect place for divers and snorkelers and is built up from several rooms and passageways filled with beautifully decorated stalactites and stalagmites that was formed during the last ice age, more then 15 thousand years ago. When surface in the main cave, bats can be seen hanging from the roof between the drop formations of the cave. Under the water a few varieties of fish and two types of freshwater shrimp can be encountered. Written by Fredrik Mattsson for DiversHotSpot.

AQUARIUM
Aquarium is a must do divesite. Period. We start over sand at 47 ft / 14.3 m and let the mild current take us to the wall. Above and along the wall are hundreds and sometimes thousands of Porkfish, Yellow Grunts and French Grunts. Large Porcupine Fish hover and stare as you pass. This site has everything if you look for it. Spotted Eels and Spotted Spiny Lobsters, sometimes Nurse Sharks and Turtles. Follow your dive guide, there are lots of turns and it just keeps getting better!
