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.
