Comments: Scuba diving into Chac Mool, one of the cave systems on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. The openings are known as cenotes. Here, the divers are doing 'cavern' dives, which limits them to a depth of 70 feet and a penetration of 200 feet, plus, they must always be within sight of some daylight. Chac Mool is one of more than 110 named caverns in 60 known cave systems. The caves are the result of Karst topography, where rainwater dissolves limestone and creates horizontal underground river systems.
