Spend a day in Puerto Aventuras exploring the underwater world of cenotes, the largest underground cavern system in the world. See the fascinating limestone structures in these caves beneath the waves, all just a short distance away from Cancun. Swim around submerged stalactites and stalagmites, and see the spectacular, natural phenomenon of haloclines, a blending of fresh and salt water, all safely lead by an expert guide.
Explore the Yucatan’s famous underground cavern system with an expert guide. Plunge beneath the waves on a 2-tank cavern dive of Cancun’s cenotes, sinkholes that lead to massive underwater caverns. Just like the caverns on land, cenotes have interesting topographic features including stalactites, stalagmites and haloclines, an aquatic phenomenon that occurs from fresh water sitting on top of salt water, creating a spectacular, swirling, filmy effect.Your guide will lead you into the depths of this magnificent underwater world and explain how the cenotes were central to the life of the Mayan. They provided the Yucatan’s indigenous people with water, hiding places and ceremonial venues. After you’ve plunged to the depths of the cenotes, lunch is included at a small palapa lunch area.Please note: this dive is for certified divers only. The caves visited are Cavern Chickin Ha on Mondays, Tajma Ha on Wednesdays and Saturdays and Dos Ojos on Fridays (additional fee applies).
