What is a Cenote?

Hidden in the Yucatan Peninsula jungle we can find the cenotes; underground river systems of caves and caverns which for thousand years have kept the secrets of the Mayan cosmogony. These spectacular places were considered as the gateway to Xibalba. Welcome to the Mayan underworld. Cenotes were used for religious purpose such as sacrificial ceremonies but also as the only freshwater resources. For the current Mayan population the cenotes are still sacred places and they still commemorate some of their ancient rituals.


For us divers, this is a new world to explore, a new adventure to live. Every diver experiences the cenotes differently, but none are the same after their first experience of cenote diving. You’ll discover a world of science by looking at the marvelous geological formations and by finding some archaelogical vestiges and fossils. But mostly you’ll get hooked and will want to come back again to explore more about these dreamworlds between the halocline, the clouds and the strays of lights. With an Open Water Certification, it is posible to dive in these incredible places, once you are more experienced we can take you to some special dives.
