Cenote Cavern Diving

Calle 28, Between 1st Ave & Mamitas Beach - Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Description

The Yucatan Peninsula is famous for its unique underground conditions. Its limestone soil has percolated rain water over millions of years to give place to the world’s longest underground river system. Parts of the surface land have collapsed over the years creating sinkholes called Cenotes, windows into this amazing underground world.
Diving in a Cenote is a unique experience. These caverns are windows to the world’s largest underground river systems and were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings. Their water is so clear with over 500 feet visibility that it will make your cavern diving adventure unforgettable. In some Cenotes you will see beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, amazing light effects as the sunlight shines through cracks in the ceiling and halocline effect.
There are many cenotes in the area, all different and special. With an Open Water Diver certification, it is possible to dive in these incredible caverns. For your first dive in cenotes, we will take you to the classic cenotes. Once you are familiar with diving in cenotes or if you are more experienced, we can take you to some special deeper cenotes.
