Two Eyes Cenote, Tulum

4.6
#1 of 92 in Wildlife in Tulum
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 guided tour with Chito in Los Molinos was amazing and totally made our day here. Chito is a fantastic guide explaining and showing you all the details. Come early before the crowd starts rolling.....  more »
  • Three of us snorkeled to the bat caves with our tour guide Oliver. His energy and experience made for the best time we could have possibly had. He took great photos and video of us, and he told us...  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.
