Comments We spent an excellent day of cenote diving with Yucatek Divers. Typical of diving operations in this area their shop, equipment, and staff are not impressive at first glance. However, they were highly recommended by a trusted local source and I have to admit they are good, very good at what they do. If fact, after diving with them I am tempted to spend a week with them and pursue a cave diving certification. Their staff did an excellent job of assessing the skill levels of our group and incorporated this into their pre-dive briefings. We are very appreciative that, based on the experience of our group, they took us two more challenging cenotes. We dove the Ponderosa Jamin de Edin and Ta Jma Ha Cenotes. Both were impressive cenote and it just wetted out appetites to do more. We were all impressed with the professionalism of their dive masters and the job they did guiding us thru the cave systems. We'll definitely do this again and certainly do it with Yucatek Divers.
