Diving in Riviera Maya

 

From Cancun to Tulum, the Riviera Maya has world class diving opportunities for all levels to offer.

The most spectacular diving and snorkelling in the area are the Cenotes, a part of an underground river system of fresh water located inside the jungle, renowned for being the best cavern and cave diving in the world.  The best ones to start with are Gran Cenote or Casa Cenote for beginners.  Follow up with Angelita or Dos Ojos for more advanced divers. 

And reef diving in the area is great for snorkelers and all levels of divers.  From migrating whale sharks in the north, turtles and bull sharks off the coast of Playa del Carmen, or an abundance of sea life and colourful coral all along the Riviera Maya coastline, you’ll love every minute of diving here. A small tip: the diving gets cheaper the further south you go.

You'll find many dive centres in all major cities.

Dos Ojos Cenotes

Travel to Riviera Maya

This tourist district stretches from Cancun to Tulum along the coastal Highway 307 in the state of Quintana Roo.  The highway has made the whole area quickly accessible from the international airport in Cancun by car, bus or colectivo.  It’s famous for its all inclusive resorts the size of small cities,  and for its pristine, white sand beaches.  It’s also a world renowned diving destination and the number one cave and cavern diving spot on the planet. 

There’s something for everyone along the Riviera Maya and for every budget too.  The whole area is rich in history and culture.  Traditional arts and crafts, fabulous food and wonderful people are all to be found, but only if you venture outside your hotel. Visit the ruins of Tulum, Coba or Chichen Itza or the many parks along the highway including Xel-Ha, Xcaret and Hidden Worlds.

You might be tempted to go all inclusive and spend your time only enjoying the entertainment in the resort but please trust me when I say you’ll be missing out on one of the most wonderful places in the world!  Hire a car and explore the area, you’ll never regret that you did. 

Eat tacos, tortas and tomalies until you can’t eat anymore!  See wonderful and unique flora and fauna that you’ve never seen before (and probably won’t again) and meet some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.  We hope you enjoy this part of the world and we’re sure you’ll find your perfect holiday moment somewhere along the Riviera Maya.
