Sistema Dos Ojos - Mexico

Sistema Dos Ojos is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in Tulum, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. This dive site has an average rating of 4.28 out of 5 from 29 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 36-40ft/11-12m. The average visibility is 91-100ft/28-30m.

Located just south of Cenote El Jardin del Eden it is hard to miss the signs for Dos Ojos.

Dos Ojos, meaning "two eyes," has become a world famous dive spot for obvious reasons. Divers and snorkelers alike flock to this natural wonder to experience this expansive cavern, which is considered to be one of the longest, and most decorated, underwater cave systems in the world. Enter through one of the two separate pools, which look like two large eyes, and explore an intricate, and surprisingly clear, maze of caves and decorations. Decorations is the term used to describe stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, and rim pools which Dos Ojos has an incredible abundance. Entrance is 100 pesos per person, and there are full bathroom facilities, snacks, and souvenirs available.

Right next door to Dos Ojos is Hidden Worlds . This spot has become world renowned after being featured in the IMAX film, "Amazing Caves" and for the thriller movie "The Cave".

Famous for being the site of a record-breaking 150-meter free dive (the diver swam this distance using only one breath), this spooky, flooded, freshwater cave goes on for 80 kilometers. It’s made up of affectionately named passages and rooms, including the The Next Generation Passage, the Wakulla Room, Bat Cave and Jill’s Room. Each offers fascinating, distinctive shapes and marine life. But you won’t be alone on a dive here: more than 100 tourists a day descend on Dos Ojos’ waters to see the blue, green and purple rooms filled with candle-drip stalactites.

This is a great dive. Did it back in April of 14. I don’t know that I would make cave diving something I do a lot, I am sure that each cave is a little diiferent, but over all this was really fun and a great dive.

this was my first dive location after my open water certification.
I used dos ojos dive shop and stayed at the Dos Ojos Lodge. They all work together.
Also great for snorkeling.some days it does get busy.

This dive was alright. It was interesting to swim through the reef walls and see the different sealife in the area, but the water wasn’t as clear as our previous dives on this reef system. We did get to see and swim with a stingray on this dive, which was awesome.

Dos Ojos is Cenote diving, no sea life. Are you sure you were at this site, ? Could have been another site with a similar name.

Barbie and the Gator were both fun, and the Conk Shell embeded in the Stalagmite was also cool. I agree on the entry system too. Very nice dive !

Beautiful. But my ears hurt like crazy. So much up and down made it hard to equalize.

Love the air pocket and laughed at Barbie on the Barbie Trail! Really like the entry and exit system.
