The Caverns in Mexico or the Riviera Maya Cenotes are in the World Guinness book of records for the longest cave and cavern systems in the world. Just South of Cancun is home to miles of incredible limestone caverns that were once dry. After thousands of years of dripping rainwater, stalagmites and stalactites formed incredible formations that challenge the imagination. Each Cenote is the entrance to an incredible maze of cavern systems, which are filled with crystal clear fresh water with over 500 feet visibility making your cavern diving adventure unforgettable. Each Cenote has it own unique features making every dive location totally different adventure.

Cozumel, the island close by, get you ready for some of the best "WALL DIVING" in the world. With average visibility of more than 130 feet or 40 meters and vertical drop offs to deep blue abyss, this is what Cozumel diving is famous for. Palancar, Santa Rosa, Columbia, San Francisco, Punta Sur, Maracaibo, Yucab, Cordona, these reefs are all famous in the world. Large sponges and beautiful corals are what make Cozumel a must for your dive vacation.

Wreck diving is also great here, the wrecks are Navy Minesweepers the C55 and the C58. You are able to go inside and penetrate the wrecks. You will also see large schools of spotted Eagle Rays. From June is the most popular time for whale sharks to visit here. You will have the best chance to dive with this amazing creature.
