A paradise for cave divers and more ! 


The Riviera Maya includes more than 1500 kilometers of explored tunnels, thousands of cenotes, an amazing variety of geological formations, and caverns accessible to beginners.

It contains the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere, with unique dives in mangroves and lagoons, and much more..

CENOTE CAVE DIVING is based in Playa del Carmen, in the state of Quintana Roo, one of three states that make up the Yucatan Peninsula (the others are Campeche and Yucatan). The Riviera Maya is bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the east and Belize to the south.





The Yucatan Peninsula is a vast limestone plateau whose creation dates from the Cretaceous to Mio-Pliocene periods (from 145 million to 2.5 million years ago). For millions of years water has carved the limestone of the area and created hundreds of kilometers of tunnels, most of which are flooded today.


The entrances to these caves are the famous cenotes (called Ts'ono'ot in Maya). There are thousands of them spread across the three states that make up the Yucatan Peninsula.



The state of Quintana Roo contains the longest flooded networks in the world, with more than 1200 kilometers of tunnels explored and mapped. The variety of systems is such that you never get bored and one life is not enough to see everything.

Whether you are a backmount cave diver, a sidemount diver, or a rebreather diver, CENOTE CAVE DIVING offers outings adapted to your level and your desires.

For more information check out our guided cave dives and our cave diving training.




Caverns are flooded entrances to underground cavities that can be visited without a cave diving certification. There are a couple of cenotes with a cavern area, each with a special and unique atmosphere.

Discover our cavern dive tours.




The coast of Quintana Roo is bordered by the largest barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere. It begins off the coast Honduras and ends north of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The north and south reefs in Playa del Carmen are still in good condition and have abundant marine life. In front of Playa del Carmen is the Cozumel Island, known for its coral formations and vertical drop-offs.
