In Yucatan there are hundreds of cenotes accessible to certified cave divers. Some of them might be easy to find but let us take you off the beaten path.
Why a cave Guide?
– Safe cave diving:
A cave guide is up to date with the dive conditions, with a large cave diving experience and constant practice. All our cave guides live and have been safely cave diving in the Riviera Maya for many years.
– Safety again:
A cave diving guide already knows the cave, the system and can assure that it suits your level and your cave diving skills.
– Fun cave diving:
We can take you on long beautiful cave dives, that maybe would take you an entire week of cave diving to find on your own, if you ever find it…
A Cave guide will drive you directly to the right cenote entrance, point you the cave entrance and guideline.
– Access to the Cenote dive site:
Going with a local cave guide could save you the time and frustration to get to the dive site and be denied the entry.
All our cave dive guides have a true passion for caves in general and cave diving. They all have experience in underwater cave exploration and survey.
– More Culture:
Living in the Riviera Maya all fluent in Spanish and English (at least) you learn a lot about the Mayan culture, the local fauna, the loca flora etc…

Cenote El Jardin del Eden
Another amazing place that you probably already know if you did your cave diving training here in the Riviera Maya. If it is your first time cave diving here in Mexico this is the place to have your first experience in diving into the halocline. A nice circuit will bring you from one side of the Open water to the other one through the famous “River Run”. A jump from this line will take you to Cenote Escondido. And if you feel like a long dive you can reach Cenote Xtabay.
Minotauro is an underwater cave system that you want to know!
If you remember from the greek mythology the minotaurs was a creature with the body of a man and the head of a bull who lived in a labyrinth.
This system is a labyrinth with different levels. Starting your dive from Cenote Minotauro you may reach other Cenote Estrella, Cenote Winz, Cenote Escalera.
All passages are fairly small but are accessible with back mount. And if you are diving side mount it can be really fun to go off to the side passages even for just a short time.
Nicely decorated with brownish speleothems and light sediment you will feel very privileged to dive these somehow dusty passages. Following the Ariadne line you will feel like Theseus hunting…
