Cenote Dos Ojos, Tulum, Mexico

Just a few miles north of Soliman Bay on the main highway is Dos Ojos, or “Two Eyes” Cenote. You can snorkel or dive the caverns, and expect the water to be cold. This is a great summer activity to check out. You have to drive back through the jungle after paying your admission and you will see all kinds of neat plants and wildlife if you look closely.
