Diving in Mexican Caribbean

Diving in the Mexican Caribbean may overwhelm you with possibilities: The reef diving around Cozumel is the best in the area and it is part of the second largest barrier reef system in the world: the Mesoamerican. In the whale shark season, snorkelling with these giant fish is something you’ll never forget. Dive with bull sharks in Playa del Carmen for a truly exhilarating experience. Dive the largest atoll in the northern hemisphere: Banco Chinchorro for an out of the way dive where it might be only you there! There is an abundance of sea life along the Caribbean coast and you will find all the reef fish and corals imaginable here.

The best cavern and cave diving in the world is along the Caribbean coast and you’ll find a Cenote around every corner.  The best caverns to dive are the Gran Cenote for beginners or Cenote Dos Ojos for more advanced divers.  You must be certified to go cavern diving.  For an intro dive you can visit the Casa Cenote.  For a magical and very interesting dive, try Cenote Angelita.  There isn’t much life in the cenotes, but has interesting rock formations and fantastic light shows. Please research your dive centres carefully, as safety is an issue when diving the Cenotes.  

In the Mexican Caribbean area you’ll find a dive centre in almost every city you come to. Shop around and you can get some great deals. 

The weather is almost perfect all year round, especially for diving in the Cenotes.  You can get strong currents on the reef but your dive centre should find a dive suitable for your experience level.  You’ll be sure to tick off a few of your favourite dives along the Caribbean coastline.

Travel to Mexican Caribbean

 

Located on the eastern coast of Mexico, this stretch from Cancun to Xcalak is a treasure trove of secluded locations, pristine beaches, tropical islands, jungles and unique dive sites. Islands include Cozumel, Holbox and Isla Mujeres or the gorgeous coastal beach towns of Tulum, Mahahual and Xcalak.

Fly into Cancun if you’re exploring the northern part of the coast or the state capital of Chetumal if you wish to discover the south.  All the cities are easily accessible by car or bus along Highway 307.

You can find any accommodation type you wish, from huge all inclusive resorts (offers online usually include flights, accommodation and all food and drinks) to small bungalows on the beach, some even without electricity! Cancun and Playa del Carmen are very touristy but from Tulum down you’ll find your 'peace and quiet' if that’s what you’re after.

Depending on your interests you’ll find an amazing assortment of activities for all age groups.  There’s dozens of ruins to explore, jungles to trek and gems to discover.  Try new and different food around every corner, meet friendly local Mayan people and best of all, dive and snorkel some of the best sites in the world.
