Together with Kukulkan (next to Chac Mool) this cenote is usually visited as a first cavern dive to practice your buoyancy and technical diving techniques. Experiencing the halocline whilst diving can be a bit spooky but great to explore its boundaries. Because of the different formations under water I felt like diving in Superman's House :) We entered and exited through little brother … great! In the dive one can surface inside an air pocket … how cool was that !! I can very much recommend diving with ProDive. As this was my first cenote dive we got a very detailed briefing! At the cenote there is a spacious parking lot with concrete tables to gear up, nice bathrooms and a shower.

Would advise anyone to take a dive into the cenote here. Crazy rock formations and stunning views. Be aware that cameras, knives and gloves are prohibited and the locals will sell you their photos of you whilst you are diving.

We visited here with Dune Mexico Blue on a half day 2-dive package, which we highly recommend (reviewed separately). There are 2 cenotes to dive on the 1 site here, plus a small cafe and clean toilets and showers here also. Chac-Mool and Kukulcan were our first ever cenote dives and we definitely plan to do more in the future. Only a short 1-2 minutes walk to cenotes, but it's amazing how far this seems once kitted up in heavy gear! lol Both are circular routes following the yellow rope as guidance, amazing light effects! And great to see all the crystals, stalactites, stalagmites etc. Such great visibility, we cannot recommend this experience enough. The only thing was you are not allowed to take your own camera, GoPro or anything that dangles into the cenotes. Whilst this does seem mostly a money making scheme, I understand there is a need to protect the cenotes. It is 60USD to buy the photo package (1,200MXN). We never buy the photos as they are always so expensive, but this time we actually did as they are pretty amazing!

I went through WetOwls dive shop to get access to this cenote. Very interesting cenote with limestone stalagtites and stalagmites. The light coming through the cavern made this a very special dive. I plan to return here in December 2019.
