The Yucatan Peninsula is special a place where the underground world is just as stunning as the above-ground one! Here, you won’t find any surface rivers, but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s just a dry, rocky plain. In fact, the limestone and cavernous rock below the surface hold some of the most incredible secrets of this region.
Let’s dive in (pun intended) and explore what makes this part of Mexico so special. First off, due to the lack of mountains and other elevations, there are no surface rivers. But fear not, because the rainwater that falls on this region has found another way to flow: underground. That’s right, the permeable nature of the limestone rock allows rainwater to seep in and create an underground network of flowing currents.
Over time, this erosion has created a vast network of interconnected tunnels and intricate caverns. In some cases, the erosion was so severe that it caused the roof to collapse, exposing the underground river to the outside world. The Mayan people recognized these openings as “cenotes” and have been visiting them for hundreds of years.
Today, expert cavers, archaeologists, and geologists are uncovering the secrets of these cenotes, and it’s nothing short of awe-inspiring. Our Instructor and full cave diver Gustavo Dietz Moch was the first to discover the cenote of Punta Laguna with more than 80 skeletons inside!
With beautiful formations of stalactites and stalagmites, it’s like stepping into another world. And the best part? DEEP Mexico can take certified divers to the cenotes to discover what lies beneath.
What is Cenote Scuba Diving?
Get ready to experience the wonder of the cenotes like never before! DEEP Mexico’s cenote excursions takes you on two-tank dives of some of the most impressive cenotes in the Riviera Maya. Trust us when we say, you’ll be left wanting to try them all!
It’s so different from ocean diving – in the most wonderful ways.
With visibility up to 200 feet/60 meters, you’ll feel like you’re flying. The sun’s rays penetrate the crystal clear water, creating a stunning light show, and the haloclines give you a sense of mystery and wonder.
As you dive, you’ll be able to admire the incredible formations of stalactites and stalagmites that have been slowly created over time. It’s truly a privilege to witness the natural beauty of the cenotes firsthand.
You need to be a certified open water diver, with a good buoyancy control to try cenote diving. But even if you’re a novice diver, you can still enjoy the cenotes with the help of our expert guides.
And the best part? You don’t need to bring any equipment, or make any plans to enjoy this unforgettable experience.
Just bring your sense of adventure and let DEEP Mexico take care of the rest. So, come explore the beauty of the cenotes and create memories that will last a lifetime!
Cenote Scuba Diving is Cavern Diving
Cavern diving and cave diving are both types of diving that take place in overhead environments, but there are some key differences between the two.
Cenote diving takes place in the entrance area of a cave or cavern system where natural light can still be seen, allowing for easy orientation and exit. Cavern diving is typically done within 60 meters/200 feet of the entrance and does not involve passing through narrow passages or swimming in complete darkness.
Cave diving, on the other hand, takes place in the deeper, more enclosed areas of a cave or cavern system, beyond the reach of natural light.
Cave diving is considered an advanced form of diving and should only be attempted by experienced and properly trained divers.
