Highlights & Specials
The cenotes of Mexico are among the most beautiful diving spots in the world: crystal clear water with impressive visibility, mystical light shows and a magical world of stalactites and stalagmites make every dive unique.
The cenotes were created many thousands of years ago. The Mexican peninsula Yucatan is a limestone platform that is crossed by underground rivers. Changes in the sea level and the dissolution of the limestone created an incomparable cave system. Collapses of the cave ceiling formed the entrance area and the access to a mysterious underwater world. There are more than 1000 cenotes in Mexico, many of which are still unexplored or have only recently been opened to divers.
The Maya used the cenotes as wells (Dzonot = holy well). On average, they are 15 meters deep, some have a depth of more than 50 meters. The cenotes can be dived all year round - even in bad weather or rough seas. The water temperature inside the cenotes is all year round 24-25 degrees.
The cenotes are a must for every diver. Enthusiasts can spend a whole week doing cavern diving, because no two cenotes are the same. An open water certification is usually sufficient to explore the wonder world. In addition, the dives usually take place only at a depth of between five and ten meters. The view is impressive because the water is very calm.
When diving through the cenotes you can observe unique stalactites and stalagmites, discover fossils and be enchanted by the different light reflections. In many cenotes there is a halocline, a kind of layer, where fresh water and salt water mix. Together with root formations, one has the impression of floating through the bottom or an underwater cloud. In some cenotes it is also possible to surface in between in a small chamber and look at the bats and stalactites.
