Cenotes Dos Ojos Tours

Known as a top diving site in the Yucatan Peninsula, Cenotes Dos Ojos (Two Eyes Cenote) boasts about 300 miles (483 kilometers) of connected underwater passageways, creating a natural cave system. Divers can explore its nearly 7,000-year-old caves and underground rivers. It also contains the deepest-known cave passage in Quintana Roo.

The Basics
Located north of Tulum and south of Playa del Carmen, Cenotes Dos Ojos is a popular excursion for those visiting the Mexican peninsula. The water temperature is considered optimum for snorkeling, at roughly 77°F (24°C) throughout the year. A range of tours offering scuba diving, snorkeling, and sightseeing options are available and typically depart from the major resort towns. Visitors can also simply float in the clear blue waters, taking in the rocky stalactites and stalagmites.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Some tours provide lunch, but bring food if you travel on your own because restaurants are scarce.
  • Dos Ojos is open 8am–5pm everyday; toilets and changing facilities are available on site.
  • Divers typically complete two dives, including one in the “bat cave,” home to plenty of the critters.

How to Get There
Located off of Highway 307, Cenotes Dos Ojos is 31 miles (50 kilometers) from Playa Del Carmen, 10.5 miles (17 kilometers) from Tulum, and about 35 minutes by ferry from Cozumel. Most tours provide round-trip transportation from these major resort towns, as well as the proper gear. The cenote is also accessible by car or taxi; if traveling on your own, snorkeling equipment is available for rent nearby.

When to Get There
The best months to visit the region are April, May, and November, which also means you encounter the biggest crowds during those times. Since the waters of Cenotes Dos Ojos remain around 77°F year-round, you can visit anytime and still enjoy a pleasant experience. If you plan to scuba dive and snorkel elsewhere, April and November offer the best visibility.

Nearby Nohoch Muul at Coba
Along with a visit to Cenotes Dos Ojos, some tours incorporate a stop at the nearby Coba ruins. The ancient Maya ruins, located about a 45-minute drive from Tulum, were home to 50,000 inhabitants at its peak. There, you can climb the main pyramid, Nohoch Mul. At 137 feet (42 meters), it's the tallest on the Yucatan Peninsula, and it provides panoramic views from the top.
