The Riviera Maya in the state of Quintana Roo in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico has long been a Mecca for cavern and cave diving and exploration. In the jungles nearby the ancient city of Tulum lie the six longest underwater cave systems (Ox Bel Ha 180 km; Sac Aktun 172 km; Dos Ojos 82 km; Aktun Hu 28 km; Toh Ha 27.8 km; and Xunaan Ha 24.9 km) known on earth with spectacular formations and an amazingly clarity of the water.
We offer about 18 different cenotes cavern tours in the area between Playa del Carmen and Tulum...each cavern having its own personality filled with subtle variety and astounding beauty!
Diving in a cenote is an unforgettable experience… pristine water that allows incredible visibility of more than 300 ft (100 m), flooded gigantic halls, rooms, and tunnels "decorated" with stalactites, stalagmite, columns and helectites (legacy of the ice age), in addition to archaeological remains, ancient paints, astonishing light beams, refraction effects, hydrogene sulfide clouds, and haloclines (where the fresh and the salt water meet).
Most of the caverns are accessible for divers without previous experience in an overhead environment. And we offer deeper and more challenging dives to divers with more advanced training or experience.
With more than 500 miles (800 km) of guide lines, the area offers an unlimited number of cave dives. From the famous Room of Tears in Carwash, the Chinese Garden in Tajmahal or the Cuzan Nah circuit in Sac Aktun, to the traverses of Dos Ojos, Naharon-Mayan Blue, Ponderosa-Chikin Ha, Kalimba or the visit to the incredible mammoth bones in Tuxchcupacha. We also offer new dive sites like Chen Hol or the more recently accessible ones like The Pit and the Dirty Dog.
