A tale of two halves. We booked two days of cenote diving with MotMot months in advance and given our tight schedule had planned three dives on the first day and two on the second because we had to leave early. On arriving at the dive shop on the first day we were told we were doing two dives on the first day and three on second day and the owner did not seem flexible given their own admin error because he had a number of other divers lined up for this itinerary. He rather rudely told us to change because everything was setup etc; however we were having none of it and couldn't switch the schedules around. The rest of the staff at MotMot were very helpful and made the necessary arrangements so that we were able to dive the itinerary that we'd booked well in advance. That didn't stop the unnecessary scornful looks from the owner towards us every time we saw him over the next two days. However, the admin [--]-up turned out in our favour as we ended up having our own dive guide for our five cenote dives; Ahmed is a freelancing cenote dive guide that does a lot of work for MotMot. He's a world renowned cave diver and spends a lot of his own time exploring the Yucatan's cave system, diving with four tanks for several hours at a time. He single-handedly turned around a bad start at MotMot into an enjoyable experience; if you haven't dived in a cenote before it's not to be missed; the water clarity is mindblowing and the haloclines and cloud-like sulphur layers are interesting experiences. I'm more of a reef diver but I'm pleased I've experienced cenote diving and if you're in this part of the world it's not to be missed.
