Cenotes Dive Sites of the Riviera Maya


Cenote Chikin Ha

 

This cenote is located approximately 25 km from Playa del Carmen, and it is the first cenote in a system that connects several cenotes through more than 10 km of underwater passages. During the dive, you will be making your way to the nearby Rainbow cenote. Upon reaching a depth of about 10m, you may experience strange visual effects as the salt and the fresh water start to mix. This is what it is called the halocline. Descend a couple of meters into the salt and experience the comfortable change in temperature as salt water is warmer than fresh water. Surfacing the Rainbow cenote there is the chance to see the never ending search for water in the jungle, the roots of many plants grow through the rock and strech to the water´s surface. Always keep an eye toward the entrance for spectacular light effects on sunny days.

Cenote Chac Mool

The entrance to this cenote is about 100 mts south of Puerto Aventuras.  There are 3 different water entrance to the Chac Mool system. On one side of the parking area, we have Little Brother cenote and Kukulkan cenote. In the main entrance we may access directly to the Dome Room. Here a portion of the ceiling has collapsed under an air dome where the divers can surface and admire a lot of beautiful stalactites and some fossils. Ku Kulkan entrance is through a beautiful pond at once end of the cenote. At approximately 10m, you will be entering the halocline zone. This phenomenon is called halocline and it creates a strange blurry visual effect. Shine your light to the point were salt and fresh water meet and marvel the reflections projected on the walls of the cavern. The light effects are amazing, as sunlight penetrates the darkness. Take a moment to look towards the ceiling at the entrance to see the colors of the rainbow. With its maximum depth of 12m-36ft, it is a perfect place for the new cavern divers. Chac Mool is also known by cave divers, because of the famous Room of the Moster where cave divers may admire the largest underwater stalactite in the world.

Cenote Garden of Eden

Locate 28 Km from Playa del Carmen, this cenote with a maximum depth of 14m-45ft offer an excellent place for inexperienced divers on their first cavern dive. The opening looks like a huge swimming pool in the middle of the jungle where divers can swim around getting familiar to fresh water and the cenote environment. During the cavern dive we will cross trough a wide tunnel which directly connects the Cenote Garden of Eden with the Cenote Corral. In this area, we will admire the sun reflecting throught the fresh water, the spots with strong halocline and shallow places with beautiful light show.

The cavern tour take the diver trough 3 different entrances/rooms with amazing sun beams penetrating in the water. The strong halocline creates an interesting mirror-like effects. During the dive,  you will admire decorations such as stalactite, stalagmite and columns and hidden fossils.

Cenote Dos Ojos

The entrance to this cenote is situated 50 km South of Playa del Carmen, just after Chemuil or the Xel-Ha Park. One of the most popular cenote of the area, its name means “two eyes”. This system allows us to complete two dives in order to discover it. Both dives will start and end in the first eye (east eye-entrance). During the cavern tour, you will swim in fresh crystal water, with no halocline, around big columns, stalactites and stalagmites. The first dive leads mainly around the “second eye” (west eye/entrance) and inside a huge cavern room. The second dive is around the Bat Cave. This dive is a little bit darker but it is safe since we are diving in circuit around a huge room where we can easily surface during all the tour. Cave divers find a place to plan many different dives. With about 60 Km of explored length and connected to over 25 cenote, Dos Ojos is one of the longest system on the Peninsula. In this location IMAX movies shoot parts of the IMAX film “Journey into amazing Caves” released in 2001. For non divers Dos Ojos is the perfect location to swim and snorkel both in open areas as well as in the Bat Cave.

Gran Cenote is located 4 km outside Tulum in the direction of Coba. The cavern dive is along the edge of the circular cenote with a maximum depth of 10m-32ft.

Cenote Carwash

Its name is linked to the story that in the past it was used to wash taxis. This cenote is located on the road to Coba, about 8 km outside Tulum. The entry looks like a small lake with a green algea bottom. The water is usually clear and trasparent except at the beginning of the warm season where the sun warms the water and creates with the vegetation a layer of fog in the first m-ft of water. Leaving the surface, we will swim through roots and fallen trees and within a few meters away we will find formations and colums. The maximum depth is around 15m-45ft.

Cenote Angelita

This cenote is located about 17 km South of Tulum, an amazing experience and for sure not a typical cenote dive! We will be diving in a sinkhole with a maximum depth is 58 meters/180 feet. After walking 5 minutes through the jungle we will reach the cenote and swim through a hydrogene sulfate cloud/layer positioned around 28m-95ft. The experience is unique and surfacing through the cloud give the divers the idea to pass a thick cloud like the one we have all watched on the planet Mars on TV. Alongside the walls you may admire huge stalactites, hanging from the edge.
