Description of Diving adventure in Angelita lagoon 6 hoursHave you ever dived in a lagoon? Do not miss this opportunity to experience cave diving and what better than to do it in the beautiful lagoons of the Riviera Maya. We will take you to the Angelita lagoon, a mysterious underground river located 17 km to the south of Tulum.
The Angelita lagoon is one of the most famous lagoons in the scuba diving world, this due to its thick sulfur cloud in the center at a depth of 24 meters, from which beautiful trees and a small moon shaped island can be seen. Once under the nitrogen sulfide cloud, you will be diving in total darkness since natural light is blocked by the sulfur cloud. Deep underwater, you can see trunks and remains of vegetation, which make it look like an underwater forest. This route is recommended for experienced divers because the lagoon reaches 40 meters deep and the route is highly difficult.
Another feature of this lagoon is that it also has an "halocline", a physical phenomenon where freshwater is mixed with salt water, making the visibility be blurred. The different densities of the two types of water means that they cannot be properly mixed, leaving the freshwater above the salt one. In the case of the Angelita lagoon it will be like going from one landscape to another, since the first 24 meters are of one type of water and the bottom 32 meters are of another kind, separated by the sulfur cloud we mention above.
