Cenote / Cavern

Cenote / Cavern


Our coast hosts countless dive sites ranging from easy and shallow ones down to those for more experienced divers and, of course, everybody will have the opportunity to try and discover the mighty cenotes.

Unique and peculiar dive sites, they characterise the Yucatan Peninsula and were created by the combination of water and carbon dioxide in contact with the soil.
