Cave Diving

History
Villas De Rosa / Aquatech Dive Center is located in the heart of Mexico's cave diving world. Cave diving emerged in the Akumal-Tulum area during the mid 1980's, when divers discovered that the cenotes (natural wells) were windows to the underground streams. This began an entire New Frontier! As cave divers continued to explore, more cave systems were discovered.

Today, there are over fifty-seven different cave systems to visit with more than 300 miles of passageways to explore and enjoy. Five of the largest water filled cave systems in the world are located in this area. The three longest known stalactitas are also located in the area's systems. History continues to be made as new roads are blazoned into the jungle, allowing access to more and more virgin cenotes. Aquatech's professional staff of cave divers and instructors is a major force in creating this living history.
