CENOTES AND CAVERNS PLAYA

The Playa del Carmen area sits on top of a vast system of underground rivers, which are accessible through cenotes, or sinkholes, where the ground has fallen away, revealing the cool, fresh water underneath.  Over the centuries, the rivers have worn away at the limestone shelf creating an awesome array of limestone formations, stalactites and stalagmites that are a real sight to see.  Many tours will take you to swim or snorkel in these cenotes, where you can see these formations above and below the water.  Cenotes are unique to Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya - the area has over 3,000 of them! Our tours take you to some of the best.
