Cenotes (“sen-o-tays”) are limestone sinkholes which have become flooded with freshwater over millions of years.
Cavern diving in the Cenotes of the Riviera Maya is a truly memorable experience. Few divers get the opportunity to experience cavern diving, so to have so many caverns available in one area means that if your are going to be diving from Playa del Carmen you really should consider completing a Cenote dive.
Cavern diving has some very specific terminology and rules which help to keep your dive safe and fun.
When diving in Cozumel you can expect to see stunning coral walls. As well as coral you can also expect to see some great examples of fish which, although found in smaller numbers than in Playa del Carmen tend to be larger as thy have had a better opportunity to live a longer life in the protected waters of the Cozumel Marine Park.
The ocean current in Cozumel varies from moderate to strong. Most dive sites are 18m or deeper. Due to these characteristics, diving in Cozumel is recommended only for experienced, Advanced Open Water divers.
