Dos Ojos means ‘Two Eyes’ in Spanish as there is actually a pair of sinkholes on the site connected by a 400 meter long passageway. It’s also the deepest known underwater cave passage stretching down to 118 metres in depth. No matter how low you go, the water remains, clear and perfect for exploring this 7,000 year old marvel.
You’ll find Dos Ojos 3km from Highway 307, 50 km south of Playa del Carmen. If you’re staying at our Club Med in the Yucatán peninsula then there’s no excuse not to visit. We organise regular trips so getting there and back is simple.
Expect perfect snorkelling conditions when you get there. The water pretty much stays at 24-25 C all year round meaning you’ll want to stay underwater for a while. For those who don’t fancy a dive, lying around the edge of Dos Ojos is still a glorious experience as you take in the stunning stalactites and stalagmites that surround the pools.
