The perfect place for everybody! Close to Tulum's center, the mayan ruins and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! The small Hotel offers everything for people who want to get a dive certification or are already professionals! Specialized for cavern and cave diving, we can make every divers wish come true!

We started Xibalba Dive Center in 2005, located on the main street in Tulum. Our goals were, to bring divers into the amazing mayan underworld Xibalba! Diving in the Cenotes around Tulum is a life time experience for every diver. The water is cristal clear and gives us a rarely seen visibility of up to 200 meters! Over thousands of years the nature created stunning caves, with lots of stalagtites and stalagmites. Diving with Xibalba Dive Center in these outstanding Cenotes feels like flying through a cave! Come and dive with us to get absolutely amazed by a complete different diving environment!

In 2009, we opened Xibalba Hotel, to give our divers not only an amazing time underwater, but also a nice, relaxing and comfortable place to stay! With 7 rooms in total and 3 different kinds of rooms, Xibalba Hotel is perfect for the single traveller or big dive groups. The hotel is located in a quiet area, just 5 min. walking distance away from Tulum Downtown, where are many restaurants, bars and shops. Guests can enjoy a swim in the mermaid pool, or can meet other guests in the upstairs terrace and share their unforgettable experiences.
