Depending on their particular formations, these natural sinkholes can be explored via wading, swimming, snorkeling and cave diving. Be prepared for a magical water world of bizarre rock formations, stalactites, stalagmites and other gorgeous natural features. These subterranean caves range from cheap and small family-run operations at the side of the road to more extravagant situations with snack bars, showers and gardens. The agony of choice is daunting as each one offers its very own kind of beauty. Our favorites, as recommended by locals, are Dos Ojos and the Gran Cenote.
