Why Cenotes/Cave courses at Riviera Maya?
The reason is simple; there are many great dive destinations! But when it comes to cave and cavern diving, the Riviera Maya is the pinnacle destination!
The Riviera Maya is one of the best cave diving destinations in the world, not only for diving but also for training. If you are thinking of making the leap, the change, the jump, this is the place to be…
This area offers you hundreds of caves to choose from. From the striking stalactites and stalagmites this complex cave will bring a sense of exhilaration as you traverse its maze and depths. With caves this beautiful, it's easy to get caught up in the rapture of the beauty that surrounds you. Cave diving will provide you with a magical and once in a life time experience.

Soon in an a blog coming up, will be Joe's personal notes from the day to day activities and thoughts that go through your head, when training in one of the most extreme diving environments on the earth.
In the Yucatán Peninsula, any surface opening where groundwater can be reached is called cenote, (which is a Spanish form of the Maya word d'zonot). The cave systems formed as normal caves underwater, but upper sections drained becoming air filled during past low sea levels. During this vadose, or air filled state, abundant speleothem deposits formed. The caves and the vadose speleothem were subsequently re-flooded and became hydraulically reactivated as rising sea levels also raised the water table.
Joe and Fred both gave an amazing performance throughout the course and meet all standards and requirements for diving in these harsh conditions.
Congratulations to Fred and Joe for completing the course.
