The Cenotes

The Cenotes, gems of the Yucatan... This underground cave network is a one-of-a-kind.

The network is mainly freshwater, but close to the sea you can also find saltwater and some unforgettable haloclines. The visiblity is excellent year round, absolutely pristine! Explore this mineral wonderland made of stalagtites and stalagmites, obviously, but also stunning underground cathedrals, and breath-taking beams of light cutting through the water...

Dos Ojos and Chac Mool are probably the most famous of them all, but check out the unreal atmosphere in Angelita: decaying vegetation has clustered into a cloud of sulfur... you will dive through it like you were flying!

Unbelievable dives, typical of the Yucatan. Once again, a must dive!
