You don’t need to read any reviews, just go dive it. I would use the reviews to get excited for the dive, not to find out if you should. Without a doubt, you should. Best of the cenotes hand down. I dove Dos Ojos, Taj Mahal, and the Pit, and this one by far is the most beautiful. The water... More

I looked at pictures of diving in the cenotes for weeks before we went. To be there in person is amazing. Looking up at the sunlight shining down through the opening, sending shafts of light down through the clear water. It is an experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

We visited Chac Mool Cenote with Dive Aventuras to do a two tank scuba dive. Despite being a little nervous this being our first cavern dive, we loved it, the underwater scenery was beautiful, a truly memorable experience.

Together with a friend we did two dives in this beautiful Cenote. Relatively easy dive as depth is max 12-14m and the caverns are spacious. Great views of stalagmites and stalactites and the halocline was amazing. Definitely recommend to go for a dive. We also bought the pictures that the photographer made of the dive.

Awesome scuba site, a once in a lifetime opportunity to go see some of the most amazing rock formations underwater. The bright green that comes into the cenote through the calcium deposits on the entrance is eery yet magical looking. Would definitely recommend and do again.

halocline! blue and green lights! crystals! fossils! a great change to those other types of diving! you will have to walk down to one cavern and of course walk back up. found it hard to do with all my gear on after the long dive so if its possible carry stuff up in a couple of trips

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
