Gran Cenote is part of the System Sac Aktun which means white cave in Mayan. The cavern dive is circular around the edge of the cenote which has beautiful lotuses growing on the surface. Has a maximum depth of 10 m / 35 ft and plenty of light falling in, this is a good dive for inexperienced cavern divers. Perfect buoyancy is required because the cavern area as well as the caves are highly decorated with beautiful white formations like stalactites, stalagmites and columns everywhere around.

It is considered one of the best cave dives in the entire area. Highly decorated everywhere, constant formations no matter where you go and 95% of the cave is in waters less or equal 12 m (40ft). Cave explores especially like areas such as the Cuza Nah loop, the Paso de Lagarto main line, the Cenote Calimba traverse, the Bosch Chen traverse and circuit. Snorkelers can view the formations of the cavern area without ever diving underwater.

Gran Cenote is located 3km/2 miles east from Tulum, it is one of the most beautiful sights in the area, perfect for snorkeling. This cenote is perfect for non-experienced divers because of the immense amount of light, which penetrates the entire cenote. This cenote has plenty of rooms filled with stalactites for divers to admire.

This cenote, and cenotes in general, have extremely high visibilities. Grand Cenote was a great and cold scuba diving.

We were navigating through simple 'cave' systems, coming back each time into the main hall. There was a yellow line for finding the way back. When coming back into the main hall, I was overwhelmed with the light and beauty; like arriving on another star.
