CDT Mexico is conveniently located in Playa del Carmen, in the Heart of the Mexican Riviera Maya. With its Caribbean climate, beautiful seafront, laidback atmosphere and fine dining possibilities, the town has many appeals and is a travelers’ favorite.

Above all, the area boasts the World’s largest concentration of underwater cave systems, and some of the most beautiful too.

The Yucatan Peninsula is a wide and unconfined flat karst landscape, home of over 1,500km of explored and mapped cave passages, with the largest two, Ox Bel Ha and Sac Actun, respectively boasting 257km and 247km of cave passages.

The area offers all types and levels of cave diving, from giant passages to the tiniest of no-mount squeeze and from the extremely shallow to the extremely deep. Most of the caves are easily accessible by car… while some are still well hidden in the jungle, waiting to be discovered and explored!

Many of the cave systems don’t exceed 5m of depth, allowing cave divers to enjoy several hours of bottom time with no decompression on a basic cave configuration, but some others descent to over 120m and requires advanced trimix techniques.

No river is to be found on the surface of the peninsula, the water is flowing instead into extended underground passages. This amazing topography has been slowly carved by fresh water infiltration in the porous carbonate bedrock, mostly made of limestone.

Divers are granted access to the cave systems through collapsed ceilings. These thousands of sinkholes are locally called “cenotes”, a Spanish word derived from the original Mayan “d’zonot”. Water is 24°C (75°F) all year long and visibility is practically limitless.
