Mexican cenotes in the Yucatan peninsula considered to have the biggest and most diverse cavern zones in the World!
Diving conditions in these water filled underground passages are ideal all year round in terms of water temperature, visibility and flow.
Thanks to it's geological location and history, the caves and caverns in this region have beautiful limestone formations, fossils, tree and mangrove roots, halocline (a layer between fresh and salt water) and marine life unique to this special ecosystem.
The cavern zones are open to divers with at least a GUE Rec 1 or Fundamentals Rec pass certification and 25+ dives, and the accompaniment of a qualified guide.
For higher safety, only three divers per guide are allowed.
Most of the cenotes intended for cavern diving have cavern guide lines, which lead throughout the entire cavern zones, for better orientation. If the permanent guide line is not present, your guide will run the line during the dive.
Entrance to the cave system is always marked by a warning sign.
Local cenotes are 10-45 minutes far by car and in one cavern tour we visit 2 different spots.
Depending on the cavern line length and the divers' gas consumption the dives take 40-70 minutes each.
