Have you ever wanted to scuba dive in a beautiful freshwater cavern?

If you’re certified and want a little something different from your dives, you should consider exploring the beautiful freshwater Caverns in the Cenotes. Exploring UnderGround is an incredible experience. As you swim through the clear water of the cavern, you feel like flying along great tunnels filled with stalactites and stalagmites. Blow your mind with the mirrors on the cave’s ceiling created by trapped air pockets; listen to the bubbles rushing over the rocks and see the refraction visual effects of the sunlight bending as it crosses the surface of the water. 

Dive the Cenotes and experience the beauty of freshwater scuba diving in the caverns of the cenotes in Mexico with Divers UnderGround.

Cenotes are natural sinkholes that connect to vast underwater cave systems. They are the perfect place for curious divers who want to experience something new and exciting.

What to expect

You will be given a thorough briefing and guided through basic cavern diving techniques for cenote diving. Once your diving equipment is ready to go, we jump in the water for an incredible experience. The water is around 25ºC/77ºF. Most people will need a 3mm long sleeve wetsuit. The water is so clear that you can see the cave from the surface.

Divers UnderGround

We provide Cenote diving services in all the recreational cavern diving sites in the Riviera Maya of Mexico, including Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, and Tulum.

What are the Cenotes?

These are naturally formed sinkholes filled with crystal-clear water and teeming with fish. Swimming through the cavernous depths, you’ll come across stunning flowstones, stalactites, and glittering minerals that attract divers worldwide.

Cenotes form over thousands of years by the effect of rainwater seeping into the ground and eroding the limestone, eventually creating a “sinkhole” where we can access the water to scuba dive.

I just got back from Puerto Aventuras and was initially going to go with the bigger name dive shop in the area. Thankfully I researched further and found Divers Underground. They provided fantastic service and were extremely informative. The dives were great and very personalized. I wouldn’t look at another shop when I return.

My wife and I just finished a trip to Playa del Carmen. It was my wife’s first time diving the cenotes. Several years ago was my first time with Divers Underground. Lara was amazing and incredibly helpful. She made the process absolutely seamless from pickup to drop-off. She strategically selected which cenotes to dive and in what order to give us an unforgettable experience. Alex was our guide and did an excellent job as well. I wish we had allowed more time during our trip to dive additional cenotes or more technical cave diving. We plan to return soon and will book with them again.

This is my 2nd time booking with Divers Underground for diving the Cenotes. I went with Camilo's recommendations for which Cenotes to try this time around, and they were all terrific dives. Very professional and personal service, with easy pickup from the ferry as I was staying over on Cozumel.
