Comments The cenotes are fun to dive, but the lead dive guide was a jerk. All of our group had been in the cenotes several times, but this guy treated us like it was the first time we ever went diving. I am a Tek diver and Divemaster, and I was berated for being over-weighted and after careful examination he determined that I needed to remove 2 pounds. This meant that I was pushing off the ceiling towards the end of the dives. The real kicker is he was wearing Tek setup with steel back plate (similar to the one I wear when Tek diving) and it makes you grossly over-weighted. I have wonderful memories of cenote dives, but after this I doubt I will ever go back.

Thinking of trying cenote diving my next trip--will definitely avoid this dive op. Anyone else you might suggest?
