Comments As someone who was in the dive industry for five years, I can, without any reservations, recommend this shop and Susanne for a foot into cavern diving and experiencing the cenotes around PDC/Tulum. From the start, her communication was clear and helpful. She recommended we start at Dos Ojos to ensure that I was comfortable with the type of diving we were doing, before we moved on to other cenotes like Tajma ha, The Pit, etc. My wife came along as a snorkeler and she was kind enough to bring her a wetsuit and mask/snorkel. She had great stories and information on all things PDC, and took the time to send us details on a day trip to Coba. This is the shop you want to dive with if you are diving the cenotes. It was a wonderful three days of diving with two at Dos Ojos (Batcave and Barbie line), Tajma ha, Ponderoso, The Pit and Nikteha. Note that taxis can be expensive and Collectivos can be full and tough to travel on with full gear. I wish I had rented a car as that would have been cheaper in the long run.
