Tulum is home of some of the best cave & cavern diving in the world. The nearby cenotes are created over thousands of years when the limestone bedrock collapses or erodes, exposing these vast underground tunnel systems. The 2nd longest underground tunnel system in the world is located only 5 km from Tulum.

Angelita or little angel is a cylindrical sink hole that descends down to a maximum depth of 60m. Located 20min south of Tulum. It differs from other cenotes in that it has no cave connections. The Hydrogen Sulphide cloud at 30m is thick. As we descend beneath it, all the natural light is blocked out as we dive in between the cloud & the trees that have fallen into the cenote over the years. A challenging deep dive, not for the faint hearted. Depth 40m.
Calavera or the Temple of Doom is situated just outside the city limits on the road towards Coba less than a 5 mins drive.

The flowstone cave features could be modern art. The Halocline is the highlight and has to be seen to be believed. Depth 16m.
