Diving in the Yucatan Peninsula - Mexico

The Yucatan Peninsula in south east Mexico, separates the Caribbean Sea from the Gulf of Mexico. It's an incredibly rich area of tropical jungle and limestone rock structures, offering some of the world's best cave diving in the mystic sink holes known as Cenotes! The Yucatan also has superb ocean diving sites on the 2nd largest barrier reef on the planet.

Going South from the northern tip of the peninsula, scubadiving starts in Cancun. Here divers can visit the famous MUSA Underwater Art Museum and the C-56, a minesweeper wreck. Then they'll hit the Puerto Morelos Marine Reserve, a true gem. Further down is Playa del Carmen with beautiful reef dives like Punta Venado, Los Arcos and Mama Vinawreck.

There are two famous islands that offer thrilling dives within marine reserves. Isla Mujeres – Garrafon Reef Park, offshore from Cancun, and Jacques Cousteau's favorite Cozumel Marine Park, a quick ferry ride from Playa del Carmen. Both are considered among the top 10 reef diving locations in the world: coral mountains, caverns, fast drift dives, deep walls...

But it's near the towns of Tulum, Puerto Aventuras and Akumal that the magic really happens: thousands of water holes, the ‘Cenotes’, await with infinite visibility! The most famous being the Dos Ojos cave system; other popular ones are The Pit, Angelita or Chac Mol.

Near the border with Belize, divers arrive in Xcalak: expect incredible, off-the-beaten-path diving in Banco Chinchorro Marine Reserve.
