On Saturday, March 29, 2014 Gosia took me on three different dives at two different cenotes.
We started at the Xibalba dive center and hotel at 8am and drove to the Carwash cenote then Dos Ojos. Bring pesos for your instructor/guide and for entry to the cenotes themselves. On average, each cenote entry for SCUBA divers is $150MXP and it $50MXP for snorkeling.
Carwash Cenote: We entered the water roughly around 9:30am. My girlfriend (whom doesn't dive) was able to snorkel there and had plenty of fun during our (Gosia and myself) dive that lasted around 45 minutes at a max depth of around 50 feet. Here you enter the fresh water pond and work your way down to the "Stop" sign at the end of the cavern dive. Gosia reels out a line that you follow as she ties it off. Once you reach the "Stop" sign you turn around and lead while Gosia trails and reels up the line behind you.
Dos Ojos Cenote: After Carwash we drove to Dos Ojos where Gosia explained the cavern system. The 'first eye' was our first dive here and the max depth was somewhere around 45 feet. Once you're in the cavern system it is pretty dark, so bring some high-powered lights. Dos Ojos was quite incredible and definitely the coolest experience of my life. We then had a lunch at the nearby eatery in the Dos Ojos camp. After lunch, our last dive was through the 'bat cave' which was about 50 minutes at a shallow max depth of 30 feet. This was the best dive of the day for me personally. You will want to have solid buoyancy control to do all of these dives as it can get kind of tight from time to time. My girlfriend was able to snorkel all over Dos Ojos and had a blast.
Gosia rocks! I highly recommend reaching out to her for any and all cenote dives, especially around the Tulum area as she knows them all very well. She's also great at giving a history on each cenote. I only wish I had more time to dive more on our trip. We will be back. Gosia's email: email@example.com.
