Dos Ojos Snorkel Cave

In Spanish, Dos Ojos means "two eyes." This unique site is named for two cenotes which connect via a cavern that has flooded with water and now serves as a popular snorkeling and dive site.

Offerings and Cost

Dos Ojos is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and guests with varying levels of experience are welcome to swim, snorkel, and dive here. Both cenotes have hardwood decks for easy entrance, but the left eye is better for divers, while the right eye is better for swimmers and snorkelers.

To snorkel inside the cave, you will have to pay $35. To rent snorkeling gear, it will cost an additional $5(USD).
