I love these people don't get me wrong. They are knowledgable and very experienced. However, I did not get a towel, nor snacks, nor water and seemed rushed through my dives. I took my friend back to the site and we went with another dive shop where the equipment was up to date, towels were supplied, snacks were given, as well as water, and we were not rushed. And the price was the same. I'd dive with them again but only next time I'd bring all of the above.

This was an amazing day! I was very nervous about diving in an overhead environment but with Monica's help, I had an unforgettable day. From the moment we arrived until the moment we were done, I felt safe and well taken care of. She is passionate and well trained and the entire dive company made for a real family environment. I will recommend this company a million times over and am looking forward to coming back!

Go for the cave diving. Not for the snorkeling, or seeing fish while snorkeling (there aren’t many, and they’re small). Not for zip lines. But the caves. INCREDIBLE! Cenote #2 is best, and the water seems to be warmer than Cenote #1. I’m not a diver (but will become one now :-),) but had my snorkeling equipment. I paddled along after divers and they illuminated the deep caves below. Completely surreal. It was peaceful and free from the adventure attractions (like zips) that some of the other parks offer. My husband and I just wanted to see a cenote, and see them we did. Saw cave bats, too! I only have two regrets – that I didn’t know how to scuba dive and I didn’t bring an underwater flashlight. Note: An earlier reviewer said he paid twice: once at the gate right off the highway, and then paid again at the entrance to the actually caves. There is only ONE entrance fee, and that is at the booth right off the highway. Show your ticket to the next entrance at the caves.

My boyfriend and I did two cavern dives with this shop. It was great and our divemaster Salvador was very helpful and attentive. We did the two lines with a break inbetween to change out our tanks.

Cavern dives are cold so make sure to bring a wetsuit and a hood. No gloves allowed. I got pretty cold halfway through the second dive. The dives are about 45 minutes each and it is like flying through a cave. Diving a cenote is a cool experience if you are ok with enclosed spaces. Make sure to bring snacks if you think you may get hungry.

We brought our own gear to save on money.

It is a beautiful place. You can practically drive up to the cenote with only a 50 meter walk. The shop will bring your gear in so you don't have to carry it all that way. There is a stairway you have to walk down to get to the cenote while wearing your gear. As long as you are ok with hauling your gear for a short distance, you will find this a wonderful experience.

Just finished two days of two tank diving with Dos Ojos Scuba and am very pleased and exhilarated. Dove Dos Ojos cenote and Chac-Mool and by chance got personal guide and dove away from the crowd. Awesome if you haven't dove cenotes you MUST GO if you are fairly skilled at buoyancy. Shop is AT Dos Ojos cenotes just north of Tuluum is small but great service and skilled knowledgeable guides certified in cave diving. GO !!!
