If you are going to scuba dive in Cozumel
in the beautiful Caribbean reefs YOU MUST take a day
trip to the mainland, Playa Del Carmen, Riviera Maya. Its only a 35
minute ferry ride from Cozumel to Playa Del Carmen. You will do
this because you want to experience the most amazing cenotes, cavern
dives. You will not forget this experience in your lifetime !
This diving area on the mainland just across the water, is often overlooked by divers going to Cozumel. The biggest misconception is that you need a special certificate. All you need is an open water certification to experience the pristine cenotes / caverns .
The word "Cenote" is pronounced, say-no-tay and is derived from the Mayan word, "Dzonot" which means sacred well. A combination of various geological events and climate changes created an incredible and unique ecosystem in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.
These are the guidelines that are to be followed for a Cavern dive.
Cave diving exceeds all of the above cavern diving limitations. Cave certification is required to go beyond the cavern limits. Guided trips to the caves can be arranged if you have the proper certification.
We have hand picked the top dive instructors and guides from various dive facilities in this area. They all specialize in cavern diving, cave diving, technical diving or ocean diving.
