I circle my light, signaling “OK?” to my divers.

I receive a collection of “OK”s in reply, so I proceed, making a primary tie-off in open water, then secondary tie-off at the lip of the overhead, and then connect my reel to the golden cavern line.

I can now sense the excitement growing as we pass through the massive tunnel that connects Cenote Garden of Eden with Cenote Corral, both of the impressive cave system of Ponderosa.

We see the glow of Corral in the distance, and we carry on around the perimeter of this horse-shoe shaped cenote, dense with tree roots, light beams, and prehistoric remnants of the coral reef that once existed here before the water levels dropped and the jungle took over.

We pass through the halocline, and the sunlight as well as the artificial light from our dive torches create an impressive light show as we bob slowly from fresh to salt water.

We turn when we reach the end of the guide line, and we languidly exit back the way we came.

The most impressive part for me is always seeing the sunlight and the vibrant green underwater hills of Garden of Eden, hospitably welcoming us back from where we once came.
