We got in touch with Paolo through some TA reviews. We were not disappointed. Although we called him around 6pm for a dive the next morning, he got it organized, meeting us directly at the restaurant were we had dinner to fill out the paperwork. He had already a group of advanced divers for the next morning, so he called Julia, a cave diving professional freelancer in Tulum. On the next day we left the hotel with Julia at 7'30am to be at 8am at the Dos Ojos Cenote entrance for 2 dives. We were completely alone, no other divers! We did the first dive without anybody else around. Apparently the water was therefore even more clear than usual, with no particles moving around yet (from the movement of other divers).
Very very impressive. Coming back from the first dive all other dive operators had arrived on site. Quite a change of atmosphere!
We did a snorkel tour with my girlfriend (who does not dive) and Julia.
After this, we went for a second dive which was even more impressive than the first one.
If you want to dive a Cenote around Tulum, we can just warmly recommend to get in touch with Paolo or Julia, who will make it an unforgettable experience. The 2 dives at Dos Ojos are among the best ones I ever did! And being the first ones on site makes a difference!

We spent an amazing 2 days diving with Paolo. He knows his stuff about these cenotes and it really shows. If you can, dive the pit with him, because it will be like nothing else.
He's a really honest, nice, genuine guy and if you want a truly incredible experience, don't go anywhere else. Can't recommend highly enough and speak for my whole family.

As a dive instructor who often travels on a shoestring, I have been exposed to the whole range of dive operations all over the world, from 5-star luxury to downright unsafe. Paolo is exceptional in all of my main areas of criteria: safety, knowledge, ecological stewardship and fun! It is very difficult to find a guide that has all of these, especially in Tulum. You will leave the dive spell-bound, with deep knowledge of what the cenotes are and how they formed, as well as how to preserve them for all future explorers and you will have learned all this in a relaxed but enthusiastic atmosphere! I cannot recommend Diving Cenotes Tulum enough to divers of all experience levels that want to have the most magical possible experience diving in one of the greatest dive destinations on earth. The guide you go with creates the atmosphere and experience you have, choose thoughtfully!

What can I say that hasn't already been said...

I was fortunate enough to stumble across Paolo when i arrived in Tulum, he turned what could have just been another dive into an EXTRA-ORDINARY experience.
He knows his stuff when it comes to cavern diving, and it shows. From our initial meeting at the hostel to gauge what kind of diving I was into and what I wanted out of the dive, to his determination on getting to the cenote early on being the first in, and his supremely obvious enthusiasm! This guy makes the experience.

Low group numbers make it even more special. The cenotes were a big tick off my list and they are fondly in my memories. The Pit… WOW!

Do yourself a favour, if you are 'shopping' on here for the best diving guide in Tulum for the cenotes, stop looking. You've found him. I think all the other reviews speak to this as well.

Cheers, mate!

Dived Dos Ojos with Paolo and had an excellent time. Like earlier posts mentioned, Paolo took all safety precautions, was very professional and a lot of fun to dive with.
I highly recommend diving with him the next time you're in Tulum.
