Dive Shops in Tulum, Mexico

Tulum offers many dive shops that can arrange for scuba excursions as well as dive certification. The list includes the following, do let us know if we have missed listing any!

A cenote [suh-noh-tee] is a deep natural sinkhole created by the collapse of limestone bedrock which exposes groundwater underneath. Area Cenotes can be filled with both fresh and salt water, because when the limestone collapses and sinks, it creates a massive reservoir where the newly exposed fresh groundwater meets the salt water that's seeping in from the Caribbean Sea via an underground channel. Cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings.


There are over 6000 different cenotes in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Below we've listed just a few that are popular for snorkeling and swimming plus some of these caverns are also great scuba dive destinations.

PLEASE: Do not wear sunscreen in the water as it causes much damage.  Some cenotes have a place to wash before entering the cenote. There are biodegradable sunscreens you can purchase that aren't as damaging.
