Angelita, located 17km/11miles south of Tulum is the farthest cenote from Playa del Carmen. After a 5 minutes walk in the jungle you will reach the circular shaped cenote which looks pretty unremarkable. However, there is a spectacular change of views once you start descending. After a cloud of hydrogen sulfate you will get to the saltwater which is very dark, giving you the sensation of being in the middle of a forest during the night. Because the maximum depth is 60m/180ft, it is only recommended for technical divers who are looking for a decompression dive in a cenote.

Angelita is the furthest site visited from Playa del Carmen, 17km south of Tulúm. Walking about 5 minutes through the jungle you reach this picturesque circular shaped cenote which does nothing more than to go straight down to 60m (200 ft). Descending through clear fresh water you will sink right into a mystical hydrogen sulfate layer at 30m (100ft) that looks like a big cloud with trunks and branches reaching through it. Passing through the cloud, the diver will reach the salt water. It is dark here, giving the diver the feeling of being in a forest at night.

Angelita is a dive for the experienced diver because of its depth. Most commonly it is dived to a depth of 40m (130ft). This cenote is visited as well, by technical divers for decompression dives.
