Located 10 minutes from Tulum this beautiful cenote is situated very close to the ocean and is connected by a 100meter cave passage. In fact, this cenote is the gateway for hundreds of kilometers of underground caves to flow out into the ocean. It provides a really unique dive for experienced divers and total beginners alike. There is a sandy patch in very shallow water where new divers learn their skills during training and it also opens up into a great open water dive with many places for the experienced diver to explore underneath the mangroves that line this cenote. Mostly freshwater, but with the tide coming in and out saltwater is also experienced. Where these two different types of water meet what's known as a Halocline is experienced. A phenomenon, not to be missed. Due to the two different types of water here we see a big array of wildlife, hundreds of small schooling fish, moray eels, crabs, and even the occasional Cayman. This dive can be done with any other dive due to its shallow depth. 2 tanks cost 170 USD Includes: Rental equipment Transport from Tulum to the dive sites Entrance fees Drinks and lunch.
