Cenote dos Ojos

cenotes playa del carmen

Experience the most amazing scuba diving of your life.

These Cenotes / Caverns / Caves are found all over the Riviera Maya, near Playa Del Carmen and Tulum.  Just 35 minutes by ferry from Cozumel.

The word “Cenote” is pronounced, say-no-tay and is derived from the Mayan word, “Dzonot” which means sacred well. A combination of various geological events and climate changes created an incredible and unique ecosystem in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

These caves and underground rivers were created naturally over 6,500 years ago. Over the past 20 years, experienced scuba divers have explored these caves discovering more than 300 miles of interconnected passageways and caves that make up this amazing one of a kind ecosystem.

These cenotes, only found in this part of the world, offer certified divers the opportunity to explore something different! Discover the beauty of these pristine windows to the underwater world and experience the dive of your life floating through caverns full of crystal clear water, stalagmites and stalactites.

This dive site is one of the most extravagant and largest underwater cave systems diving sites in the Yucatan Peninsula, definitely is a must do for any divers who are looking for something a little different.

The name means “two eyes ” in English and there may not be a better way to describe this magical dive site, it was named like that because of the two sinkholes of 70 meters in diameter connected by a 400-meter long passageway.

The setting is perfect as you walk a short distance through the jungle to the rather large hidden away cenote.

There is more natural light here, thus it is a great place for everybody.

Dos Ojos is the location of the deepest known underwater cave passage at a 118 meter depth. The whole cave system is at least 61 km long.

The water temperature is ideal for snorkeling at a constant 24-25 degrees Celsius throughout the year.
