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

Beautiful caverns in the jungle that aren't hard to get to or start with in the area. They are approximately 20 km South of Playa del Carmen and have a good (but fairly busy) area for stepping in and starting out your Cenote diving. The Cenotes themselves here (we dove Chac Mool & Kulkulkan) were cool to see, but as... More

This was our first and only Cenote dive while in Mexico. It is a good one to start with. We dove with Dive Aventuras out of the Omni Hotel. Mario was a great guide and we felt safe and comfortable. It was crowded at times, but the guides did a great job of spacing things out. Take money for food... More

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
