Dos Ojos cenote.
Dos Ojos cenote: two beautiful turquoise eyes are looking to the sky. These eyes actually are two cenotes (if seen them from above), they have everything to amaze anyone who is willing to explore in a magical place! Dos Ojos is one of the most famous cenotes not only to scuba dive but also to snorkel in the Mexican Riviera Maya.
Dos Ojos cenote is the third largest underwater river of the world with more than 5 miles of length and with 28 cenotes who have been discovered. Scuba divers love to come and enjoy the 2 cavern lines established. One is called “ Barbie” with .4 miles (500 m) and the other is “ Baticueva” (literally means the cave of batman) with .27 miles (450 m).
The temperature of 75°F (24°C) all year long is refreshing when swimming there after visiting other places in the area of Tulum, like the mayan ruins of Tulum.
Of course cavern/cave diving is one the most challenging and technical diving and present many hazards. But the fauna and the views of the underworld are breathtaking. Also the idea that few people have been diving in these caves attracts all people around the world.
But Snorkeling in Dos Ojos cenote is also a unique experience, and even if you won’t be following the same circuit that the divers, you will spend an incredible moment at the surface and be careful you need to be aware that there could be divers below! We don’t want that you confuse them with some monsters of the mayan underworld!
