About
A pair of connected underwater caves that are part of the Sac Actun cave system, Cenotes Dos Ojos is a popular spot for diving and snorkeling. Sunlight seeping in from the crater above reveals impressive rock formations and makes it easy to see the diverse marine life, including colorful fish and sea turtles. Swimming is also enjoyable in the cenotes, great for younger children, with life jackets available for hire. For the best experience, opt for a guided tour that starts earlier in the day before the crowds arrive and takes you into the deeper parts of the cavern. – Tripadvisor

    Pair of beautiful part cave part open cenotes
    A pair of very pretty partially opened cenotes. We got there exactly when they opened so we had the place to ourselves which was awesome. There was some decent snorkeling with all the cave formations and small fish all around. It is a bit intimidating for the young ones. My 4 year old didn’t venture very far from the dock. I wouldn’t say these were particular fun cenotes but they were definitely beautiful and glad we did them and got the pictures. Note they do charge 1000mxn if you want to use your drone or other prof photography equipment beyond a smart phone or disposable. Also be warned there are a lot of bugs and your not supposed to wear bug repellent as it harms the formations.

    An excellent way to spend a few hours in beautiful surroundings
    Some practical information first; we had a hire car so arrived via that and we are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids under 10). We arrived late in the day (around 3:30) which on one hand worked out well as we had each cenote pretty much to ourselves but on the other hand we ran out of time there (they close promptly at 5). After leaving the highway the ticket office is pretty much the first building you come to. It has a large thatched roof and is to the left of a barrier. You need to pay here, we paid 400 pesos per adult and 200 pesos per child. We were told initially there was no card payment but when we said we wouldn't have enough cash to cover snorkel rental a card machine appeared (we paid a 5% surcharge for this). It's marked as a 3 kilometre drive from the ticket office to the entry to the car park for Dos Ojos and you pass a number of other cenotes along the way. The road is fairly bumpy so go steady! It was quiet when we got there so plenty of space in the car park. At the entry desk we paid to hire snorkels - total was just over 1400 pesos but 1200 of that was a refundable deposit. There are lockers there also but we chose to bring our belongings with us as it wasn't busy You need to shower before going in to wash off suncream. The showers are next to a bathroom block (well kept) We went to 'Eye One' first, there was a diving area to the left and a large snorkelling area to the right. You pick up a life vest next to the cenote. The water was beautiful, quite refreshing and clear. Plenty of small fish to see. I'd say 'Eye 2' was the most impressive one but we didn't leave enough time to do it properly. I'd recommend planning on at least 2 hours at the park. In eye 2 there were lots of bats flying around and you can swim between the 2 main chambers. There weren't any guides around by the time we got there but I wouldn't say one was essential unless you are keen to understand more about the cenotes rather than just enjoy the swimming, snorkelling and surroundings.

    A must dive cenote in Tulum
    A very cool cenote for diving. We have done the batcave line which was very cool with a bat cave half way where you come up for air in an internal cave full of bats. Not a deep dive but it is dark with not much life. Fantastic structures that with the light come to life, bring the camera or go pro because it is worth it. It is relatively shallow, most times you're hovering a meter above the sand and silt so watch the buoyancy so that you don't stir up the silt. Although it looks a bit scary, you feel like you are in the cave system with no easy way out (either forward or backwards), it actually offers quite a few side exits so it is very safe. It is one of the must cenotes to dive in Tulum.

    Cenote Fun
    We drove to the entrance and got tickets at the gate. They were very helpful in navigating us through purchase options. Quite a hike if you don’t drive from gate. Did 3 cenotes in on afternoon… some of my favorites Jaguar had a fun zip line and jumping platform, Dos Ojos was beautiful snorkeling and Nicte-Ha had really cool little turtles to swim with 🐢❤️💕 Bring Pesos always the easiest.

    Super moment under the water!
    Went there to dive, was perfect. Great for Open Water Diver (you stay between 3 and 10 meter max.). The tour is well marked ; you can’t be lost. Clearly something to see If you are around I advise you to try it out! Enjoy.

Awesome cenotes! I only need about an hour if you snorkel only and not dive. Get there early or else it gets uncomfortably crowded.

Wow! don't miss this place. Stunning views, super fun adventure, safe for everyone. we did the "open air" side but they have two cenotes... the other one is actually down inside a cave! We snorkeled but there were other people in full diving suits. The pictures are amazing too... this place is a gem!
