You don’t need a special certification, such as cave diving, to dive in a cenote but you do need to either follow a guide or a line, and pay attention to your air consumption.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are interested in diving a cavern but are also a little concerned, ask a local shop which caverns offer large swim-through areas. There are many cenotes/caverns with tight tunnels where you must dive single-file. It can often be very dark in various areas so plan to bring a good torch. Likewise, if you haven’t dived at night, you may find cenote/cavern diving uncomfortable.

Please do your research. Ask for credentials of the dive operator you choose and of the guide responsible for your safety. Always dive within your limits – don’t be afraid to call a dive if you’re not certain you’re ready for it.
