Cenote Scuba Diving

The Yucatan peninsula is probably the best well-known place in the world for cave and cavern diving. These caves are called Cenotes which is the Spanish form of the Maya word d’zonot. If you are visiting us, this is your opportunity to experience a completely different and unique way of exploration. These water-filled caves attract divers from all over the world.

The Cenotes (caverns) are the access to a huge network of underground freshwater rivers; Mother Nature's veins keep ancient secrets and provide testimony of past cultures and extinct animals.

 

These underground rivers are considered top-class caverns and cave diving, and the Riviera Maya is the home of a fine cave diving community. Some of its members are world-class divers and instructors. If you are a certified open water diver with a recent dive you are welcome to join a 40-minute orientation on the procedures you need to experience a cavern dive.
