This cenote has much to offer for both cavern and cave divers. This dive covers four cenotes in one dive. The up and down profile may be a little bit aggressive for novice divers and people with sensitive ears. The cavern tour takes divers into a wide room underneath an air filled Bat Cave. Here light enters through holes in the ceiling and penetrates the water like laser beams during the summer months. Along the cavern floor divers will find hundreds of stalactites lying in the sediment. Continuing the dive divers enter the Sugar Bowl, a second small cenote where they can see an amazing light show on sunny days. Tajma Ha is decorated with stalactites, stalagmites and plenty of hidden fossils that can be spotted if divers look for them. Haloclines in the deeper areas create interesting mirror-like effects as divers penetrate the layer of salt water, which is below the fresh water. For cave divers there is the "Chinese Garden". Maximum depth of that site is 13m/42ft and visibility is more than 25m/82ft.

When to go

Diving is available all year round. The average water temperature in the winter is around 23C/73F and in the summer around 26C/78F. The rain season usually lasts from June to October.

What to see

While diving the cavern divers can observe sharp halocline, beautiful light effects, interesting fossils, limestone halls, collapses, changing water colors due to tannic acid and speleotherms.
