Swim in Cenotes at Dreams Riviera Cancun!

There are many exciting excursions and day trips that guests can take from Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa. For those looking for an unforgettable outdoor adventure, cenotes are the perfect place to go! Cenotes are natural pits or sinkholes that form when limestone bedrock collapses to expose the groundwater underneath. These magnificent underwater caves are truly a sight to behold and even more incredible to experience from the inside!

You'll never forget the experience of swimming in a cenote during your stay at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa!

You’ll never forget the experience of swimming in a cenote during your stay at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa!

Ancient Mayans created wells to use cenotes as their main water supply and also believed the pools were gateways to the afterlife; they would frequently throw valuables and even sacrificial offerings in to the cenotes. When you visit a cenote, you’re swimming with history and in a place of incredible beauty. Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa has multiple cenotes within an hour of the property! To set up your adventure, email our concierge at info.drerc@dreamsresorts.com or visit the concierge desk at the beginning of your stay!
