If you're a diver with few cenotes logged then you have to do Calavera. Diving through a halocline is an unforgettable sensation. The water is blurry when mixed or when settled you see the distinct boundary between layers. Meanwhile you feel the buoyancy and temperature change and it is fun to play with your position through the fresh and salt water.

Ok maybe the title is a slight exaggeration but it is a must if you dive here.

Of the four cenotes i dived in while in Tulum, this is my favourite! Not worth for swimmers though..

Temple of Doom was the last cennote we cavern dove in. It's set about 100 meters (yards) back in a jungle, there is a path that has gravel. The first part of it has some bigger rocks and when you get to the cennote it can be a bit sketchy if you don't have decent footware. The cennote itself has a hole about 3-4 meters about the water. (Maybe less) As a diver, you gear up and take a giant step. Super fun. For the cavern dive you follow a line down to the bottom, to a T and then go either left or right. The line wraps around the "Temple" bringing you back to the T. From there you leave your line and start circling up the "Temple". While following the line you can allows see the light on your side and it causes some amazing light effects. This part of the dive was amazing. While the rest of the dive is fun, you essentially go through the same area you already have but higher up (closer to the light). Some day I would like to return when I have my cave certification, but for now, once is enough

This place needs to be better maintained. Fix your diving board buddy, it cuts your feet. Not too hard to put a new piece of wood up.

We went there by bike from tulum city about 15 min. It is in my opinion nothing official. It is a private property. Scuba divers come here to see the beautiful underwater world and many caves. We talked to several people and it is highly recommended for diving.
We came here for swimming and snorkeling and were really disappointed. The property itself is a mess. The cenote very small when you only want to swim and snorkel. Noting special. The beautiful lies underneath! People usually come here within a tour of divers.
The entrance fee is 200 pesos. Even if you not dive.
Not worth it.
