Great cenote diving experience

If you are a diver this should be on your bucket list. Very interesting dive with plenty of beautiful views.

halocline! blue and green lights! crystals! fossils! a great change to those other types of diving! you will have to walk down to one cavern and of course walk back up. found it hard to do with all my gear on after the long dive so if its possible carry stuff up in a couple of trips

Chac Mool was just ok when I visited. There was only one place with light effects. The cave was kinda cool to see the bottom of tree trunks and get close up with the stalagmites. Not my favorite Cenote.

Firstly let me say this is not for everyone and certainly not for kids! For us, it was amazing! Rafa our guide was very knowledgeable about these caves and help set up the guide wires. I would not do this with any other guide. It's quite a long taxi ride from the hotel zone in Cancum, maybe 45-50 minutes? The... More

Great place to dive. The water is great and clean. Fairly fresh so any scuba or even snorkling should be done with a wetsuit. Snorkling with 3mm wet suit. Scuba with either a 7mm or two 3mm wetsuit. No need for wet shoes, gloves and hood although could be used. On location, you will have everything you need to get... More

I came to the Maya Riviera specifically to dive the Cenotes and I was not disappointed! Chac Mool was my first of many. The water clarity is amazing, easy entrance and exit even fully geared. Plus best dive guide ever - Philippe Graffin! Great diving!
