Dos Ojos, Tulum, Mexico
Located on Mexico’s picturesque Yucatan Peninsula, Dos Ojos beckons those with a penchant for adventure. Like to dive? This is a spectacular place to do it. But do be warned. This is not a spot for the inexperienced – the underwater world that lies beneath the surface here is deep, disorientating and like nowhere else on Earth.
Dos Ojos — translated as ‘Two Eyes’ — refers to the two main entrance points to the vast cave network. Divers first started exploring here in 1987. But so long and winding are the narrow passages, there’s still a great deal to discover in the crystal clear waters. Located close to Tulum, getting to Dos Ojos is relatively easy. But with great caverns and mysterious creatures awaiting in the depths, those who do take the plunge often find the experience to be a little like leaving the Earth behind and travelling to another world.
