Parque Dos Ojos
Parque Dos Ojos information
About 4km south of Xcacel-Xcacelito – and 1km south of amusement park Xel-Há – is the turnoff to the enormous Dos Ojos cave system. Operating as a sustainable tourism project by the local Maya community, Parque Dos Ojos offers guided snorkeling and diving tours of some amazing underwater caverns, where you float past illuminated stalactites and stalagmites in an eerie wonderland.
With an extent of about 83km and some 30 cenotes, it’s one of the largest underwater cave systems in the world. One of the most popular sites for experienced divers is the Pit, a 110m-deep cenote in which you can see ancient human and animal remains. If you are not a certified diver, you can pay the price of admission and go swimming or snorkeling.
