This is the second cenote dive I’ve been on in my 20 plus year dive career and I really enjoyed it. As noted in other reviews, no cameras are allowed, which is too bad, but the professional photographer got photos and videos of our group...More

As a fairly new diver with less than 15 dives I was a bit apprehensive, but diving this cenote with an experienced dive master was easy and well worth the visit. Clear water and plenty of cave-type things to see. (No fish or plant life!)...More

This is a private cenote, so when we went it was not crowded: there was only 1 other group there. Of note, you are not allowed to bring your camera to this cenote, but there is someone there who will take pictures of you and...More

We were disappointed initially with not being able to bring in the cameras but completely understand now why this decision was made having dove other cenotes where cameras are allowed. Chac Mool is crystal clear and amazing with the formations that once damaged can never...More

First of all the cave was amazing. Did the two dive routs which were spectacular and thrilling. Great light fall and beautiful structure. However it was forbidden to take your own camera inside or you or your instructor will get banned. There's a guy taking...More

Words fail to truly convey the breath taking beauty of this cavern dive. Our diving party had 2 novice divers and 1 intermediate diver and found the dive easy, yet incredibly beautiful. It was our first cavern dive, and our dive master from Manta Divers...More

This was my first cavern dive and it was amazing. Both cenotes are beautiful and even though so close offer a different dive. Light patterns in Kukulkan are stunning. The air dome in Chac Mool is super interesting. Look for little scorpions there. Proper buoyancy...More

Great cenote dive, this was our second dive after the nearby Kulkucan. Very impressive experience in the darkness, the stalactites were wonderful. The air dome was very enjoyable and a nice stop before exiting. Just be prepared for a slightly cold water. The light pattern...More
