Cenote diving Playa del Carmen

Cenote Jardín de Edén

Ponderosa

Garden of Eden is an excellent first cenote dive as you progress along the open water at all times.  Located close to Playa and also called "Ponderosa", Garden of Eden is a mangrove type cenote, with magic light rays passing through the tree branches and roots. This creates beautiful photo opportunities. 

Coral fossils can be found everywhere, and it offers the strongest halocline among the cenotes, making it one of the best cenote dives around Playa del Carmen. 

A famous place for cave diving in Mexico, you're likely to see cave divers in training here.

Tajma-ha

The white cavern

Enjoy the light show that the "sugar bowl cenote" offers, and pass underneath the bat cave decorated with stalactites and stalagmites! 

Plenty of hidden fossils can be find along the way, cool haloclines will be encounter in the deeper parts of the cenote and the laser beams of light coming through holes in the cavern never disappoint.

Cenote Zapote 

Hell Bells stalactites

This one is not for everyone: with an impressive entrance, a dark room full of nightmarish formations, Cenote Zapote has a lot to offer, but only to the bravest! 

Starting with what looks like a small entrance, the cenote opens up to a huge chamber full of "bell shaped" formations, the only ones in the world created underwater!

A cloud of hydrogen sulfur and a dead tree await for you at 30 m, adding to a strange, spooky atmosphere. A must of cenote diving in Playa del Carmen!

Cenote Maravillas

Magic Light

From a circular entrance into the ground, divers access an enormous spherical room. At 28 m of depth divers will go through a cloud of hydrogen sulfur under which they will be able to admire the famous hells bells. Coming back up above the cloud, we will witness the rays of light entering the room from the entrance above and playing with the cloud below. 

We will then slowly spiral up this massive underground room, often admiring the descents of the freedivers training in this popular cenote.  

This cenote is usually combined with Zapote.
