in a cenote cavern is an unforgettable experience, unique to this
area of Mexico. Cenotes are cavern entrances to the underground
river system of the Yucatan Peninsula.
The word "Cenote" is pronounced, say-no-tay and is derived from the Mayan word, "Dzonot" which means sacred well. A combination of various geological events and climate changes created an incredible and unique ecosystem in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. These caves and underground rivers were created naturally over 6,500 years ago. Over the past 20 years, experienced scuba divers have explored these caves discovering more than 300 miles of interconnected passageways and caves that make up this amazing one of a kind ecosystem.
These cenotes, only found in this part of the world, offer certified divers the opportunity to explore something different! Discover the tranquil beauty of these pristine windows to the underwater world and experience the dive of your life floating through caverns full of crystal clear water, stalagmites and stalactites.
The maximum depth reached is 50 feet (16 meters), with excellent visibility, no current, and fresh water.
