Diving in Mexico – Unforgettable Adventure Awaits!
The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef is the second largest barrier reef in the world. This Barrier Reef begins at the top of the Yucatan Peninsula and runs south to Belize and beyond. This reef system, with over 500 fish species and 100 coral types, gives you some of the best snorkeling and diving in the Riviera Maya and Costa Maya. The Riviera Maya is known as one of the top spots for Loggerhead and Green turtles, queen conch, and the annual migration of whale sharks. This means a great sea-adventure whether you are a snorkeler or experienced scuba diver. The Riviera Maya also offers a unique dive experience like no other in the world: cavern diving! The fresh water of the Yucatan runs underground and the caverns & caves offer an unique and adventurous dive experience.
