Cenote Dos Ojos

Cenote Dos Ojos is a system of two interconnected cenotes near Tulum, Mexico. “Dos Ojos” means “two eyes” in Spanish and refers to the two cenotes that comprise the system. The two cenotes are called the Bat Cave and the Barbie Line.

Dos Ojos is one of the most popular dive sites on the Yucat√°n Peninsula. The water in the cenotes is crystal clear, and visibility can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet). The cenotes also have a variety of cave formations that make them a fascinating place to explore.

Bat Cave is the larger of the two cenotes and is home to a colony of bats. Barbie Line is smaller and shallower than Bat Cave and is a good place for beginners to learn to dive.
