Diving in the Cenotes:

The Yucatan Peninsula is a huge limestone platform where fresh water runs like rivers through underground cave systems. Part of this land collapsed after the last ice age more than 8,000 years ago, creating sinkholes called CENOTES, derived from the Mayan word “Dzonot” which means sacred well and were considered the entrance to the mythical underworld by the ancient Mayas.
One of them belongs to the most spectacular ones with 56 km – Dos Ojos, which means “two eyes”, describing the two circular shaped cenotes shining in daylight.
You will be picked up from your hotel by van in the morning and experience two unique dives in the world´s finest fresh water caverns. Our group consists of max. 4 certified divers per cavern guide.
