Playa del Carmen is a beautiful coastal town in Riviera Maya, Mexico, known for its stunning beaches, vibrant nightlife, and recreational activities. But hidden beneath the crystal-clear waters surrounding this popular destination are some of the world’s most breathtaking natural wonders — cenotes. These underground sinkholes are the result of the erosion of the limestone bedrock, revealing a pool of clear and fresh water perfect for swimming and diving. These are the coolest cenotes to visit on your next trip to Playa del Carmen.
Cenote Dos Ojos
Located just a few miles from Tulum town, Cenote Dos Ojos is one of the most popular cenotes to explore. Its name means “Two Eyes” since the two sinkholes look like two eyes connected by a cavern. The perfectly clear water in this cenote is ideal for diving, snorkeling, or swimming. The visibility is unmatched, and you will be able to see fish swimming beneath you as well as an amazing rock formation underwater.
