Comments Cave Heaven is a dive operation focused on cenote diving in Tulum. They offer UTD cave training, guided cavern and cave dives, and rentals for independent cave divers. They also offer excellent accommodations above their dive shop. My wife and I opted for a first day of instruction, to improve our trim, buoyancy and propulsion skills. This was a real benefit later in the cenotes. Then we did 3 days of guided cavern dives. Ela and Adam were great instructors and patient, safe guides. Safety is the primary concern with cave and cavern diving, and Cave Heaven were dedicated to safe diving in the cenotes. We had a memorable time exploring the caverns. They are amazingly beautiful and spooky! The photo opportunities were fantastic, as well. We dove in Car Wash, both caverns at Dos Ojos, Calavera and Gran Cenote. Incredible! We had a one-bedroom apartment at Cave Heaven that was brand new, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and a great price. There are a wide range of good restaurants and bars in Tulum, which is a vibrant and safe town to walk around. The nearby beaches are fabulous for swimming and snorkeling. The Mayan ruins in Tulum and nearby Coba are fascinating and well worth a visit. We'll definitely be back diving the cenotes with Cave Heaven again.
