Two Eyes Cenote, Tulum

#1 of 79 in Wildlife in Tulum
Reef · Cave
For a different take on the conventional diving experience, visit Two Eyes Cenote, 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.

  • The most beuatiful cenotes I have ever visited. Crystal clear water and beautiful rock formations, everyone who works there was super nice. This is a MUST if you visit the Riviera Maya.  more »
  • Absolutely loved this cenote. Quite busy, but you'd never know - there are so many places you can swim to get away from the crowds. You can float around the whole eye and it was fantastic. Hope you...  more »
  • Amazing nature. Bats cave was creepy but an incredible experience. Mind your head in some of the tunnels as stalactites can touch the water. Anti mosquitoes while outside the water highly recommend even at day time
  • We did Snorkeling in one of the most amazing underwater caves of the world. We did with our wonderful guides from Padi tourism: GUSTAVO e ALDO. This Cenote Is one of the most stunning diving sites in the Yucatan peninsula. It is also one of the largest underwater cave systems. Be aware of the cold water! Brrr
  • A new experience. We made the visit without the guide, we could decide how much time to spend in the different locations. Recommended.
  • A great set up. We went at 2.30pm (just before finishing) and were rewarded with a relatively quiet cenote experience. We paid 600pesos for a guided tour - which felt was so worth it. The guide was excellent and the equipment/lockers were very good quality.
  • Definitely one of the best and biggest (discovered and public) cenotes around.. Try to go early in the morning to catch light curtains in the water and avoid crowd. 2nd eye is better than the 1st one in my opinion.
