Cenote Diving

What are cenotes?

The Yucatan Peninsula is a huge limestone

platform where fresh water runs like rivers

through underground cave systems. Part

of this land collapsed after the last ice age

more than 8,000 years ago, creating sinkholes

called CENOTES, derived from the

Mayan word “Dzonot” which means sacred

well and were considered the entrance to the

mythical underworld by the ancient Mayas.


Here are 6 tips before you go cenote diving!

1) Cave diving or cavern diving?

Well, technically they’re the same thing but different.

Both involve diving in an overhead environment,

but cavern diving means not straying

out of the range of visible light from the surface,

and not going further than 60m into the overhead

environment. Cave diving is exploring beyond the

range of visible light, passing into spaces that are

not suitable for untrained divers.

2) Do I need a special certification?

Not necessarily. To dive the cenotes as a recreational

diver, you just need an Open Water certification.

To explore deeper into the underwater

world, however, you need to undergo extensive

cave diver training and learn how to use different

types of equipment.

3)What equipment do I need?

Normal dive gear is fine but long suits and boots

are a good idea. The water temperature’s a little

cooler in the cenotes than the open ocean and you

may have to hike through a little bit of jungle to

get to the entry point. Ditch your snorkel, apart

from the overhead environment, some of the cenotes

are filled with tree roots and branches, which

present an entanglement hazard.

4) What will I see down there?

There’s not a lot of fish life in the cenotes, but that

is more than made up for by the spectacular rock

formations, stalactites, stalagmites and fossils, all

lit by the most beautiful displays of light. You may

well also encounter the phenomenon of the halocline,

a boundary between fresh water from the

surface and heavier salt water seeping in from the

ocean, which gives you the impression that you are

swimming over a lake, or above the clouds.

Notable Cenotes

Cenote el Pit

The Pit is the largest underwater

cave in the world! It´s a deep and

rugged gash in the jungle floor,

part of Dos Ojos cave system. You

will be amazed by fascinating light

beams that penetrate the cavern

for more than 40 metres down

(120ft). The entrance is steep and

narrow, but once you are inside the

cavern, you appreciate peaceful

surroundings by circling around.

Cenote Tajma Ha

Reader Reviews

Cenote Tajma Ha is very famous for its

stalactites, stalagmites, its spectacular

lights effects and its fossil shells. You can

also discover large rooms of limestone,

speleothems, ceiling collapsed and a

dense halocline. Haloclines in the deeper

areas create interesting mirror like effects

as divers penetrate the layer of salt

water, which is below the fresh water.

Not only are cenotes fun for first time tourists or swimmers, but also for profesional divers.

Reader Charlotte Obama had this to say about cenote diving “My husband and I did our

first cenote diving in The Pit and Tajma Ha and it was amazing! We have done lots of ocean

diving but this was not like anything we have done before. Truly unique and we would

highly recommend!”

Mount Everest

About Mount Everest

Mount Everest is a peak in the Himalaya mountain

range. It is located between Nepal and Tibet, an autonomous

region of China. At 8,849 meters (29,032

feet), it is considered the tallest point on Earth. In the

nineteenth century, the mountain was named after

George Everest, a former Surveyor General of India.

The Tibetan name is Chomolungma, which means

“Mother Goddess of the World.” The Nepali name is

Sagarmatha, which has various meanings. The Himalayan

mountains have long been home to indigenous

groups living in the valleys. The most famous of

these are the Sherpa people. The word “Sherpa” is often

used to mean mountain guide, though it actually

refers to an ethnic group. The Sherpa have valuable

experience in mountain climbing, which they can

provide to other climbers.

Climbing Mount Everest has become

a popular expedition for mountain

climbers. However, it is a dangerous

undertaking. Climbing Everest requires

a lot of experience mountaineering

elsewhere, as well as a certificate

of good health, equipment, and

a trained Nepalese guide. The snow

and ice on the mountain create deadly

hazards like avalanches, and there

is only a limited climbing season due

to bad weather conditions. But perhaps

the biggest danger is the altitude.

Most climbers are not accustomed to

the high altitude and low oxygen levels

and rely on bottled oxygen they

bring along. This is why the area above 8,000 meters (26,000 feet) elevation on Everest is called the

“death zone.” Climbers who spend long periods in this region can develop altitude sickness and

even brain swelling.

1953 British Mount Everest Expedition

The 1953 British Mount Everest expedition

was the ninth mountaineering expedition to

attempt the first ascent of Mount Everest, and

the first confirmed to have succeeded when

Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary reached

the summit on 29 May 1953. Led by Colonel

John Hunt, it was organised and financed by

the Joint Himalayan Committee. News of the

expedition’s success reached London in time

to be released on the morning of Queen Elizabeth

II’s coronation, on 2 June that year.

Reader Reviews

Mount Everest Today

Mount Everest’s climbing industry has become

controversial. As popularity of the climb has increased,

there have been more “traffic jams” as

climbers spend too much time in the death zone

waiting for their chance to go to the summit.

With more people has also come more pollution

up near the summit as climbers often discard

unwanted items all along the mountain. Additionally,

the Sherpa people have been exploited

by climbers, and their traditional way of life

has been disrupted by foreign climbers. Sherpa

guides are faced with some of the highest death

rates of any field of employment, for comparatively

little pay. Most disturbingly, because many

climbers have died along the way, and their bodies are impossible to retrieve, climbers must frequently

travel past corpses as they make their way up the mountain.

Reader James Bowie, who recently came back from Mount Everest had this to say: “Understand

the meaning of life being there. Everyone must see this beauty of nature once. Someone

could understand the meaning of life being there. Truly, an amazing place to be.”
