Taj Ma Ha

Taj Ma Ha is located between Puerto Aventuras and Akumal. This site is very popular amongst cavern divers because it offers a huge range of things to see. There are sections where you can observe the visual disturbance created when the layers of fresh and salt waters meet, called a halocline. When you dive to the point furthest from the cenote, you will find another beautiful sinkhole called Cenote Sugarbowl. Between the Sugarbowl and Taj Ma Ha cenotes there is a huge chamber that is only partially filled with water. There are a few cracks in the ceiling of this chamber which, between the months of May and September, allow beams of light to come down through the water, making the Points of Light Room a must see during the summer months. It is a great beginner site, but extra care needs to be taken to prevent damage to the fragile formations.

Chinese garden

The Taj Ma Ha cenote has been popular among divers for years. The entrance to the cenote is incredibly beautiful. The dive begins on the permanently installed cavern line. When you dive to the point on the cavern line furthest from the cenote, you will find another beautiful sinkhole called Cenote Sugarbowl. Just passed Cenote Sugarbowl you will have to take a secret tunnel to reach the Chinese Garden. The towering decorations within the two chambers of the Garden are stunning. On your way back, between the Sugarbowl and Taj Ma Ha cenotes, there is a huge chamber that is only partially filled with water. There are a few cracks in the ceiling of this chamber which, between the months of May and September, allow beams of light to come down through the water, making the Points of Light Room a must see during the summer months.
