Have you ever thought about diving in Caverns? 
If you are a certified diver and planning a trip to the Riviera Maya a dive in caverns - the CENOTES - is definitely a must-do. 
The Cenotes - from the Yucatec Maya dzonot (well) - are crystalline underground rivers and caverns unique to the region.

The visibility in the Cenotes is excellent. The water is very clear, as it comes from rain water infiltrating slowly through the ground, and therefore contains very little suspended particular matter. 

The stalactites and stalagmites that form inside the cenotes are true natural works of art.

Some Cenotes have a halocline, which is where salt and fresh water come together creating fascinating visual effects. In many, holes in the ceiling allow the sunlight to filter into the cenotes, giving the scene a magical feeling.
