Quintana Roo on the sun drenched shores of Mexico’s Caribbean coastline has long been a mecca for cave diving and exploration. Since the early 1980’s, explorers have pushed back the darkness to reveal a frontier so vast that it may never be fully surveyed.
The underwater passages and labyrinths are among the most breathtaking in the world. These caves, filled from ceiling to floor with incredibly crystal clear water as well as beautiful and fragile stalactites, stalagmites and columns, let divers experience an underwater world unlike anywhere else on earth. Most of the systems are quite shallow, with maximum depths between 60-80 ft (18-25 mts). Average depths of 30-40 ft (9-12 mts) allow longer bottom times with little or no decompression.
A unique aspect of many cave systems is the halocline. This phenomenon occurs when salt water penetrates through the limestone from the nearby Caribbean Sea, meeting with the fresh water and creating an amazing visual effect. In the eastern part of Yucatan, there are over fifty different cave systems, with more than 300 miles of passageways to dive and enjoy. Three of the largest water filled cave systems in the world are located in this area: Ox Bel Ha (770419 ft / 234824 mts), Sac Actun (706620 feet / 215378 mts), and Dos Ojos (268989 ft / 81988 mts).

Besides the beauty, the cenotes, unique in the world, offer certified divers the opportunity to dive in the bowels of the earth, explore something different, float through caverns full of clear water, cave decorations and sunlight effects.

The cenote dives are typically shallow 15-50ft (5-15m), and are open to anyone with entry level diving experience. Open Water diver certification is the minimum requirement. The fresh water is extremely calm, welcoming you to a world of silence and rest.

The water temperature inside the cenotes is 75F (25C) year round. While the light effects are the most spectacular on sunny days, the caverns can be dived regardless of the weather or the time of year.
