Comments The owner of Dive Aventuras, Mike Doody, was very responsive via email prior to our arrival. He answered all our questions and reserved dive spots for our group for the week. He had a van pick us up and drop us off at our rental house each day.

We dove in three different cenotes: Chac-Mool, Ponderosa, and Dos Ojos. All three provided amazing cavern dives and Ponderosa, with its huge opening, was great for the two snorkelers we took. Alex was our dive guide and he took exceptional care of us.

The dive shop ran smoothly and everyone was willing to take care of our needs and desires.

If we ever make a third trip to dive in the Mayan Cenotes, we will definitely choose Dive Aventuras again.
