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

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.
