We only dove one of the two Cenotes on this property Choc Mools. It was a nice dive, I would go back and do it again.

Pro's - amazing viz and the salt water/freshwater mixing effect (halocline?) is super-cool Con's - I prefer critters, so sea/ocean open water dives rule. Saying that, it's something every diver should do at least once. We went with Dressel out of Iberostar Lindo.

We dove this cenote first. Two dives there. It's very nice. Not as spectacular as Taj Mahal or others. But worth doing for sure!

On this property there are 2 cenotes: Chac Mool and Kukulkan. They were both great the later being the better of the 2. Excellent dome can be surfaced and explored without mask/regulator. Our dive shop, Dive X, was excellent. Halo-cline was longer than I have experienced so swimming through it was difficult to appreciate anything other than the halo-cline itself.... More

WOW. This was our 1st Cenote scuba dive. No words to adequately describe the experience, but here it goes. It's like floating through Space exploring another planet. The water is so clear it seems like you are suspended in air. I was so dazzled by my surroundings that I forgot I was submerged in cavern 50 ft under water with... More

Excellent cavern dive with halo cline, air pocket, crystal clear water, and lots of stalagmite formations!

I visited the Chac Mool Dive site with my fiance in November 2013. We made our arrangements with Alvero from Always Diving and he guided our dives. The dives in these cenotes were amazing. I've been diving in the oceans and in fresh water lakes. These dives are completely different. There are a few small fish to see here and... More

As an experianced diver, I was not attracted to the cenotes for any reason other than to say i've done that. With the complete absence of any marine life, waterclarity so poor due to the hydroclimes you can't see your hand in front of your face, and the total time of 12 hours away from the resort for a double...

My husband, teenage son, and I did some snorkeling here. It was remote, quiet, and incredibly beautiful, one of the highlights of our Riviera Maya trip.

This was my first scuba dive in a Cenote, although I have snorkeled several and have been looking forward to this experience. I was not disappointed! Went with Scuba Libre and our guide Rigo was thorough and informative. Not to busy while we were there and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves, you just cant describe how... More
