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

First time diving in a denote. It was amazing and soo glad I did it. My guide was great. Loved the small group too. I highly reccommend it. It is very different than a ocean dive!!!

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!

.... if you have never dove cenotes before. I love ocean diving with crazy currents and lots of critters, however, Mexico Blue Dream made this experience very memorable. There is a photographer that takes good photos and video of your underwater experience. Unfortunately, there was a miss-communication between what I was told I was getting and what I actually received... More
