Tulum Cave Diving
If you’ve never had the chance to visit Yucatan in Mexico, diver or not, you should definitely add it to your bucket list of vacation destinations. What an incredible experience I had visiting Tulum and the cenotes in the surrounding area this past April. I was fortunate enough to be traveling with a great group of divers, from all over the United States, brought together by Cave Country Dive Shop in High Springs, Florida. We were a mix of backgrounds from certified Open Water through Full Cave. This trip was exactly the way I like to vacation. 11 dives in six days, and I left still wanting more. Eat, dive, eat, dive, eat, and sleep. There may have been a few cervezas in there too, but who’s counting? Gran Cenote, Nohoch Na Chich, The Pit, Zacil Ha, Cenote Escondido, and Fenomeno are the six spots we were able to visit. This was a trip for real divers with passionate dedication. Every day was an exciting adventure, traveling through the jungles of the Yucatan to our next dive site. Using pulley systems to lower gear down to entrances far below and climbing up and down stairs that were steep enough to make you dizzy. Let us not forget the countless hikes down dirt paths with gear in tow…hard work with an amazing payoff. Fenomeno was, by far, my favorite on this trip, but the caves of Abaco are still my all time favorite.
