We spent 2 days (half-day diving in the mornings) diving 4 cenotes with Xibalba: Angelita, Calavera (Temple of Doom), The Pit and Dos Ojos (Bat Cave). Each cenote was very different from the other, making for a varied experience. Pre-trip communication was a breeze, and we found our guide, Hairo, to be excellent: he was professional, reassuring, friendly, patient and... More

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

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.
