I was referred to Xibalba by a dive school in the UK so was unsure what to expect, but it surpassed all my expectations. I had a one-to-one experience with Hairo to complete my PADI open water referral dives and was previously a nervous diver, but he put me at ease immediately. He's a very talented teacher who is kind,... More

My son and I dove Dos Ojos with Hairo and had a great time. Dove with Xibalba last year too and would not go anywhere else. The cenotes are an amazing experience and as once-a-year divers we felt totally safe.

Lonely Planet sent me to them because they are known for their safety. Great dive trip to Dos Ojos cenote and I certainly agree.

What an experience! Richie was a tremendous guide and the cenotes were stunning. I did 4 dives over 2 days in 2 different cenotes. Richie was well prepared, knowledgeable, and took the time to make sure I got the best experience I could with the time that I had. While I am an experienced cave diver, this was my first... More

My girlfriend and me (25,31) visited tulum in september 2014 and we got the recommendation to dive with the xibalba dive team. We did this and it was the best diving experience we made and though we are not very experienced we already saw some different dive centers all over the world. Xibalba is outstanding. They are professional diver to... More

We dived Dos Ojos Cenote with Xibalba and it was an excellent experience. The guide Paul was one of the best we have had and guided us through the differences in cavern diving very clearly - turns out he is a cave explorer and instructor. He made the whole experience very relaxed and easy, driving us there himself and buying... More

We visited Xibalba in Dec 2013 to do some cave diving and to make use of this excellent hotel. We found both Richie & Hiro to be super friendly, professional and helpful. These guys made us feel part of the family. Daily breakfast was great and staff warm and welcoming. The facilities at Xibalba made our stay there most enjoyable... More

We travelled December 2013. This was our 5th time using the dive centre for tank rentals and air fills. Great service and information. They have rooms on site also. Storage areas for gear on site. It is not easy to get cave location information and they will provide it but will also provide training and guiding if required.
