    @diatrix Have you tried getting a quote for the Proteus? Maybe is worth it until the technology is more widely available.
    Thanks for the video, I had no idea of that environmental problem, I’m actually going to El Cuyo on Sunday, and later to other parts of Yu, and visit Tulu, the week after next. Are you at an NGO, University? Maybe there is a Cenote I should avoid? but even more important how can we not contribute to that contamination.

    • I tried to get the quote, but I didn’t get a reply. It was a few months back. I also asked for a data sheet, so maybe they were afraid that I’d get something from it.
      I’m part of Red Tulum Sostenible, an NGO, but the project is my own. Most comercial cenotes are fine. Maybe avoid cenote CarWash, for it’s proximity to the garbage dump.
      As for avoiding being part of the problem, if you can, stay somewhere that has a dry toilet (baño seco) and don’t use sunscreen, even organic one. Use long sleeves and a hat if you need sun protection.

      If you want to meet for a chat or something while you’re here let me know, otherwise enjoy your holiday.
