Thousands of years ago underwater caves started to collapse and gateways to the river system were opened creating sinkholes called Cenotes. The word "Cenote" is derived from the Mayan term "D'zonot", which represents a subterranean cavity that contains permanent water. The Mayan people considered the Cenotes as the entrance to their mythical and spiritual underworld and also they were their only fresh water source in the middle of the jungle.
On this tour, you'll visit these amazing cenotes. You'll depart from the dive center and head to a famous cenote like Dos Ojos (Two Eyes) or Chac-Mool. Passing through the dense Mayan jungle, you will make your way to the first site where an elaborate briefing by the specialized cavern guide will be given. Diving through this wonderland of stalactites, stalagmites, large caverns and light shows you are guaranteed an experience of a lifetime. Between the two dives you will have a light lunch and you will be back to Playa del Carmen at around 3pm. Due to excellent conditions, shallow depth, endless visibility, spacious caverns and little current, the Cenote dives are fit for all levels of certified divers.
