Comments Having just finished 2 weeks diving in the Philippines, I did no open water diving here - just the cenote. This was my first cenote cavern dive and I really enjoyed it - but a couple of times is enough for me, unless you are a cave diver (I'm not). We dived at Dos Ojos, about 15 minutes from Tulum. Beautiful caverns with light filtering down from above, plus impressive stalagtites and stalagmites. Gin clear water. Nothing else to see other than the occasional tiny fish and crab. Totally dark most of the dive, with max distance from nearest surface set at a considerable 60 meters (197 feet). Two (different) dives $120 USD + $15 for all equipment, incl. wet suits and lights. My 3 non-diving companions snorkeled (2 snorkel trip - $49). While Cenote Dive Center specializes in cenote cave and cavern diving, they also do open water dives ( For cenote diving, I'd recommend them.
