Cenote Chac Mool

Cenote Chac Mool is a little gem nestled in the middle of the Yucatan jungle where many divers experience their second cenote dive. This cavern contains darker sections but is an easy dive.


The cenote Chac Mool site itself has a few other cenotes and the second dive is usually done in cenote Kukulkan.
It’s a great place to walk around with a camera, the site has many shell & coral fossils over 2.5 million years old littering the ground. When in season, sightings of the stunning sacred Mayan bird, the Motmot is very common.

Cenote Chac Mool offers changing rooms, shower, newly built restrooms and a restaurant and souvenirs and many tables to set up gear comfortably with short & easy access to the water.


Once inside, you will appreciate the vastness and beauty this cavern displays. When dived early in the morning, you will be greeted with an unforgettable display of dazzling light effects from the sunrays dancing in the crystal clear water .
Cenote Chac Mool is wide open and lit up with darker sections in the cavern part of the dive, its waters are crystal clear with a year-round temperature of 76F / 25C .
Around 10m / 30ft deep, you will experience the effects of halocline, thermocline and a harmless cloud of hydrogen sulfide with varying densities from time to time.
Cenote Chac Mool contains many different varieties of speleothems and is filled with a great variety of calcite crystals and Pliocene epoch (5 million to 11 700 years ago) shell and coral fossils which you can observe at any depth and it even hides a shipwreck!
Cenote Chac Mool offers a safe air dome where we surface to admire a great variety of cave animals, speleothems, crystals and root systems.

Cenote Chac Mool has a considerable collection of freshwater – cavern animals including turtles, catfish, cichlids, eels and crustaceans which are commonly seen while diving.

Cameras of any kind are forbidden while diving, however there is a photographer on site who offers incredible photos and videos at a reasonable price.
