The dive site

Between Playa Del Carmen & Cancun

The Cenote itself has a depth of 87m, the max depth allowed on the competition will be 85m. The water temperature is high (around 25 degrees), as in all cenotes there is no waves or current, this offers amazing conditions.

  • Official competition platform
  • Max depth of the cenote is 87m.
  • Max depth competition: 85m.
  • Fresh Water, No Waves...
  • Surface temperature: 27 degrees
  • Depth Temperature: 25 degrees
  • Low visibility

How to get there ?

Cenote Yum-Kin

The Cenote Yum-Kin is located about an hour from Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. The access by car is easy because it is located on the main road 180D that goes from Cancun to Merida.

However, it is more complex to reach it by public transportation. For this reason, we recommend you to get a car or reach out to other athletes (Whatsapp group) to share transportation.

So, for the duration of the competition you can stay in Playa Del Carmen, a vibrant and lovely city or Puerto Morelos if you want to reduce the driving time to the dive site.

*Please note that you can only freedive at Yum Ki’n under the direct supervision of an official guide provided by PranaMaya Freediving.
