If you are visiting us, this is your opportunity to experience a completely different and unique way of exploration. These water filled caves attract divers from all over the world as they present a technical diving challenge.

The Cenotes (cavern) are the access to a huge net of underground freshwater rivers; Mother Nature veins keep ancient secrets and provide testimony of past cultures and extinct animals.

This underground rivers are consider top class cavern and cave diving and
the Riviera Maya is home of a fine cave diving community; some of its
members are world class divers and instructors.If you are a certified open
water diver with a recent dive you are welcome to join a 40 minute
orientation on the procedures you need to experience a cavern dive.

stalagmites (decorations) and how friendly the environment is, this is the
