"Dos Ojos cenote" Top 5 Page for this destination Cenotes Tip by Dabs

Cenotes, Playa del Carmen: 10 reviews and 19 photos

We visited the Dos Ojos cenote as part of our tour with Edventures, I assume you can also visit on your own if you wish to snorkel and it looks like there are organized scuba dives.

Dos Ojos is located in between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum, it's one of the longest underwater cave systems in the world. Dos Ojos is Spanish for two eyes for the two neighboring cenotes. We just snorkeled, our guide took us into the bat cave for which you'd want to have some sort of flashlight to avoid knocking your head on the stalagtites and also to be able to see anything at all.

We didn't see many fish, this is fresh water, not salt water and you visit the cenote to see the rock formations, not the fish. The water is cool, most people had on at least a 1/2 wet suit but after being in the water for a minute I was fine with the temperature.
