Entrance for divers: 200 Pesos
Facility: no tables, no toilets, newly installed platform to better lower the tanks and a rebuild road that allows access with the car all the way to the entrance,
Maximum depth: 35m / 115 ft
Some years ago, this for sure was the ultimate dive trip for anyone not cave certified but wanting to see something special. Since that time, entrance has been made so much easier but the dive itself still remains unparalleled and exciting. The Pit is the entrance sinkhole to the deepest cave in Quintana Roo and descends down vertically to a depth of over 119m/ 355ft.
New are the stairs (Feb 2012) down to the platform, so a lot of the heavy work before and after the dive is gone. All the logistics with the tanks and the climbing out of the pit are still not easy, so I only can accept very fit and sportive people here. Excellent buoyancy control, awareness and team work are essential on that dive.
