  • La cueva, the cenote, is a particular place from a naturalistic point of view, the water here is a little chilly, but once inside, swim surrounded by green trees is magnificent. I haven't seen any fish. I think the experience is very interesting for diving. And when you're tired of the cenote, you can go for a swim in the sea which is on the other side of the road.

  • La Cueva de los Peces is a wonderful spot only a 10-15 mins drive from Playa Larga, and directly off the main road, so you may drive past it and not even realize it. The beautiful waters of the bay si...  more »

  • The cave looks really nice. I dived in the sea, it was beautiful. Lots of corals and fishes.
  • an amazing heaven includes a cave and a sea wall. There is an underwater cave the depth is about 70 meters, the water on the surface is not that much salty but by going through the cave the rate of salt is getting more because the cace is connected to the sea. Also you can sea some kind of fishes and really big cave shrimp. I should add I went through the cave with Scub diving equipment a couple of months ago, it was one my best experience around the world really . Don't forget there is a nice beach with the coral wall also, by passing the wall the depth will be more than 400 meters and the visibility is more than 30 meters also.
  • Great spot to go Snorkeling and relax on a hot day. The water is clear and you can see all type of little fishes: rainbow fish and blue fish. On one side is snorkeling and on the other side is a small water cave that you can swim in as well.
  • Wonderful swimming hole which is connected to the sea and​ is full of beautiful fish.
  • Gorgeous secluded beach with snorkeling and all-inclusive drinks and lunch
