Jardín del Edén
This place is located at 25 min from Playa del Carmen. Also called “PONDEROSA,” this Cenote offers a wild opening with a lot of marine life. It’s the perfect place to spend a few hours.
You can swim, practice snorkeling, and of course Scuba dive. The cavern is one of these few places like Cenote “KUKULKAN” where the light effect is at his best!! It’s a very large opening where the sun hits the water with all its power. You will admire curtains of light throughout the entire dive.
The max depth of this dive is 50ft/15m, so you will also meet with salt water and OuHaa!!! Here you feel the thermocline as well as the halocline. It is so beautiful to hang at the bottom and look back to see your halocline “shadow.”
Diving a long time in the Cenote shows you as well the jungle plants and trees reflecting at the surface, mangrove tree roots sipping the water, and the amazing photosynthesis of the algae.
