Cenotes Dos Ojos, Tulum

4.5
#1 of 20 in Parks in Tulum
For a different take on the conventional diving experience, visit Cenotes Dos Ojos, a flooded system of caverns just north of Tulum. One of the world's most extravagant dive sites, this is also one of Mexico's biggest underwater cave systems, featuring almost 30 sinkhole entrances (cenotes, as the locals call them). The caves stretch for over 80 km (50 mi), but most divers focus on two sinkholes approximately 70 m (230 ft) in diameter, linked by a 400 m (1,300 ft) passage. There's plenty of light here and the water temperature remains a constant 25 C (77 F), which makes this spot ideal for snorkeling and learning how to scuba dive.

    We only really popped in here and swam in the first two Cenotes. It was quiet dirty and felt a little run down. This might be because it’s low season, but I think there are better sites to visit.  more »

    If you have a diving qualification, then it is really terribly bother to go here diving. The water is crystal clear and the underwater world is fantastic. Very special to be in the caves to dive. You do have your advanced degree. Also for snorkeling is really great. It is a pool with incredibly blue water, in the middle of the jungle. Quite apart. Take deet against mosquitoes.

    I had the opportunity to go to cenote two eyes and so as crystal clear and perfect blue of nature show in the photos..., the water is a bit cold, but you get used, I did the tour of the two cenotes (eye 1 and 2) and the bat cave... It was the ultimate!. I recommend it a lot for snorkeling and scuba diving with more reason you must enter. With the value of the entry + tour includes all equipment of snorkel, fins, mask, flashlight and vest, also if you feel much cold you provide diving suit.

Where to stay in Tulum

Most accommodations in Tulum make the most of the region's scenic coastline, offering sea views and easy beach access along the coastal Route 15. This area, known as the Hotel Zone, includes everything from basic, budget-friendly "cabanas" (beach shacks) to large-scale beach resorts. For proximity to the town's famous Mayan ruins, stay at the northern end of this coastal stretch. If you want easier access to amenities and ongoing connections, look to the township itself, located a short drive from the beach.
