Dive Cenote Dos Ojos

Ambiance Cave Fresh water

Dos Ojos is a flooded cave system located south of Playa Del Carmen and north of Tulum, on the Caribbean coast, in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. The exploration of Dos Ojos began in 1986 and has never stopped since. The documented underwater extend of the cave system is at least 61 km.

Dos Ojos has remains in the top 10 longest underwater cave systems in the world. Dos Ojos contains the deepest known cave passage in Quintana Roo with 118 meters / 396 feet of depth located at The Cenote Pit.

The name Dos Ojos is Spanish for two eyes, and refers to two neighboring cenotes which connect into a very large cavern zone shared between the two. These two cenote appear like two large eyes into the underground. Some of the underwater cave were featured in an IMAX Film in 2002, Journey Into Amazing Caves. Parts of the Hollywood 2006 movie The Cave was filmed in the Dos Ojos cave system. However this movie really sucked.

Water temperature is 24 to 25 °C (77 Fahrenheit) throughout the year and the maximum depth near the Dos Ojos Cenotes is approximately 10 m (33 feet). The water is exceptionally clear.

There are a few varieties of fish living in the cavern and two types of freshwater shrimp.

Their is also a Bat Cave that you surface in to see the bats.

My best dive ever. Chistal clear water. My wife who is a beginner was a little afraid it was her first cave dive. Only the idea of not be able to surface, gave her the shakes. As we went into the water al of her fears went away. The sun light that breaks through the water surface is unbelieveble.The water is crytal clear and you almost forget you are under water As we dove in with torches the vieuw was spectacular and immediatly she started to love it. It took us about 50 minutes to complete the tour. We had a great guide. We can recommend it. You will love it. What is very important is your boyancy, stay clear of the bottom, and it is like a great dream.

my first experience in cavern diving was in mexico too and it was amazing. I truly love it. I think the most wonderful dive I have had done before. I haven't been in this one yet. but whenever I go back to mexico, I will go here because it looks amazing. I love cenote dives. I am going to do it again.

Amazing dive. It was my first experience in cavern diving, and it was really exciting. Very good visibility, full of stalactites, stalagmites, caves and even bats. No fish. Watch your head, avoid more than 4 divers at the time and enjoy!
