Make cenote diving the highlight activity of your stay in Mexico.
Cenote diving is an incredible experience. Cenotes are a fantastic place for diving and are still pretty good for snorkeling. You won’t see much fish, but the cave formations visible from the service are quite dramatic.
Cenote means sacred well – a place to worship natural wonders and the breathtaking beauty of the Mayan landscape. The opportunity to swim and snorkel in cenotes attracts tourists from all over the world.
Unlike the ocean where there can be big waves or a strong rip current, the cenotes are closed – inside the caves – that protect the calm and blue waters from external factors. This usually makes them an ideal place for a relaxing swimming experience.
Experience unforgettable dives inside the magical world of cenotes. Cave diving is an extreme sport and is a way for divers to explore flooded caves for scientific investigation, research purposes, search and recovery, or for technical challenges.
Cave diving combines the thrill of scuba diving with the wonder of spelunking for a truly unique experience. Cave and marine environments each hold some of the most unusual and diverse ecosystems on the planet.
Underwater caves have very little light, food, or oxygen.
Be aware – the water is cold. It will start out refreshing, but can quickly get cold without a wetsuit. The water temp is around 21° C.
It is not recommended that you go exploring the cenotes on your own. Without the knowledge of an expert tour guide, you run the risk of getting lost and endangering the health, safety, and environment of your surroundings.
Cenotes are addictive and once you discover the Mayan underwater world, for sure you will be back for more.
