    Diving in Cenotes

    Half day diving excursion with 2 dives in the famous cenotes. The diving in the cenotes is something very special. The Yucatan peninsula is famous for this wide cross-linked, underground river system, and each year thousands of divers come to Mexico just to have this experience. Hundreds of kilometers extend along the coast. Mystical places of a bygone culture. The cenotes. To get there, we take the pick-up truck directly into the jungle. Having arrived at the cenote we consider the local conditions, and provide a detailed briefing about the safety regulations and the dives. Then we prepare the equipment and start for the first dive; there are usually two. Between dives we offer a snack with cold, non-alcoholic beverages. After the second dive, we have lunch. What makes the cavern diving in the cenotes something special? The crystal clear water gives you a feeling of floating in the middle of an underground room. The light has a laser intensity and the ancient formations are breathtaking. A must for every diver. The rates for the Cenotes depend on distance, entrance fees and double entrance fees (115 USD - 165 USD)
