To swim in cenotes bring your swimsuit, a visor or goggles, and life jacket (even if you know how to swim).

It is advisable to have proper diving certification, carry complete and in good condition equipment, and have a technical guide Dive Master or Full Cave Dive depending on the diving site.

It is advisable to bring biodegradable insect repellent and sunscreen, and water.

Every modification alters the ecosystem, leave nature sites, elements and its fauna as found.

Care for nature! Bring bags to take all your litter and garbage back with you; take special care of glassware and / or campfires.

Find out about the facilities and public use areas, access roads and authorized activities.

Be aware of noise regulations or keep noise to the minimum to avoid frightening wildlife.

For your safety, keep distance and avoid interactions with wildlife (or corals), beware of photographing them in ways that cause them to alter their behaviour.

Leave outside of the reserve non-native plants or animals.

Remember heat can be extreme, especially from April to September. Stay hydrated and dress accordingly.
