DIVE THE FAMOUS CAVERNS
Throughout the Playa del Carmen area of Mexico exist these spectacular marvels of nature. Carved through the millennia by subterranean rivers that flow beneath the limestone shelf that is the Riviera Maya, stalactites and stalagmites take on dramatic and amazing formations, both above the water level, and even more spectacularly, below it.
Imagine scuba diving through the cenotes (underground caverns) of Playa del Carmen, making your way through the formations, like a scene out of Lord of the Rings! The cenotes are world-famous, and have been brought to life in the IMAX film "Journey into Amazing Caves" and many documentaries. Quite a different experience, and one that can only be had here in Playa del Carmen.
