Let’s Go Diving in the Cenotes

The Yucatan peninsula is the only place in the world where you will find “cenotes”. They were formed by rain filtering down through the ground, dissolving the limestone. A process that took thousands of years. Vast underwater caves were then formed, as the roof collapsed and then filled with water. Creating one of the greatest adventure locations for divers all over the world – the flooded underwater cave systems of Riviera Maya.

Cenotes are considered today some of the clearest waters in the world with visibility of more than 100 meters. From beginners to tech divers, there’s a cenote for everyone!

Top Cenote Diving Locations

Explore the Cenotes from Tulum


Even being just sinkholes, the experience for divers is amazing: the halocline effect – where salt water meets freshwater is mesmerizing. Each cenote is unique – there are underwater flower gardens – like Carwash, or eerie underwater rivers with fallen trees like Angelita. Some are deep and reserved for Advanced divers only – such as the 119 m deep cenote the Pit.

Some of the most fascinating cenotes are located near Tulum. The famous Dos Ojos and Casa Cenote are a few minutes ride from the center. Casa Cenote is a popular snorkeling spot – and as it resembles an open water natural pool it is also a great location for a discovery dive or an Open Water Course.
