The Riviera Maya, Mexico boasts the largest interconnected cenote system in the Americas with more than 300 miles of passageways. These underground caverns or sink holes house deep wells of fresh water and are covered with stalactites and stalagmite, and there are over 3000 of them in the Yucatan Peninsula, though only a few that are accessible by visitors.
Cenote dives in the Riviera Maya are suitable for recreational divers as they include “cavern-designated” areas within the caves systems, with divers never more than 200 linear feet from the surface. All cenote dives are conducted by cave certified guides, who follow strictly all cavern-diving procedures.
The cenotes Pro Dive visits are large and cathedral like. They dive in small groups of 4 divers for maximum safety and enjoyment. After a short but highly informative drive into the jungle, divers enter the crystal clear water (visibility above 150´) to view the incredible limestone formations - all immersed in a magical play of sunlight.
Trips are run daily for these 2 tank dives to cenotes.
Guests of the Allegro Cozumel and the Occidental Grand Cozumel also have an opportunity leave the island for a mainland excursion and two tank cenote dive conducted by the staff of Pro Dive Mexico.
Non-divers have the option to join Pro Dive Mexico for one of the jungle ride/snorkeling excursions to the cenotes.
