Incredible!
Don't miss it! Small dive company, personalized attention, and incredible views and experience! Really special to dive in a Cenote and especially then pop up in a "bat cave" after swimming underground tunnels with flashlights. All gear provided, showers at Cenote site were a plus. It was a bit tiring to carry all gear down steps from the parking area twice, but if you're in okay shape, should be fine. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

Dos Ojos Cenote Private Tour with Mayan lunch
Amazing trip, couldn't recommend more. Arturo was really knowledgeable about the cenotes and took us to all the corners, including the bat cave which was the best bit and can't be accessed without a guide. The whole process was smooth from pick up to drop off at our hotel and the lunch at the end was also delicious.

Dos Ojos Cenote Cavern Dive- The Barbie Line and The Bat Cave
I was torn about which dives to do in the area and this one did not dissapoint. The folks at Flying Fish Tulum were awesome. Diving with Budgie was a blast. They guy has over 1100 cave dives, knew everyone at every diving spot, and made it an incredibly fun time.

Dos Ojos Cenote Private Tour with Mayan lunch
Daniele and Rodrigo were fantastic! Daniele was incredibly knowledgable and had a great personality. He made sure we were safe, had a good time, and enjoyed our lunch as well. Making our way through the 2nd Eye of the cenote was my favorite part. Everything from the bat cave to how clear the water was to a nice cold Model with lunch made this experience all the more wonderful. I would do it all over again!

Dos Ojos Cenote Private Tour with Mayan lunch
First and foremost, Claire, our tour guide, was a gem! She spoke great English and was very inviting. Secondly, go early! We left at 8am and missed the crown altogether! We were the only ones in both eyes (ojos!¡) and the bat cave. Without her a guide, we wouldn’t have been allowed in many unique areas within the adventure! She was very helpful getting pictures taken for us as well. (I tried to upload our air jump picture into the clear blue water but it wouldn’t let me). The lunch after the swimming was really good and had some unique and local Mayan artisan souvenirs as well. PAY THE EXTRA FOR THIS PRIVATE TOUR- YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!! We are two female travelers and felt very comfortable at all times!! * Don’t forget to tip your guides* Viva la Mexico! Cheers 🍻 - two besties enjoying life and culture!

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 the cenote 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.
