The Yucatan’s Cenotes are the result of millions of years of geological and oceanic activity on the submerged limestone platform, upon which the peninsula is located.

The resulting caves, underground passages, stalactites and stalagmites are what make the Cenotes world famous. Diving here is beautiful, safe and unique, in that you can dive or snorkel parts of the 300+ miles of interconnected passageways with just an Open Water certification. You are always within 60 metres of direct access to air and daylight and dive groups feature a maximum of four divers per guide. Water temperature is a constant 24C and a 3mm wetsuit is recommended. Expect haloclines and spectacular scenes as the natural sunlight beams down through the clear water especially at Dos Ojos and Chac Mool, two of the most well known Cenotes. It's a unique experience.

A further attraction is that, unlike the ocean, diving the Cenotes is not dependent upon weather conditions – diving here is year round in this incredible and unique eco-system!
