About the shore based diving

Mexico is an excellent destination for combining diving with a vacation top-side. Enjoy the exotic blend of golden sand, turqouise waters, lively markets and relaxed beachlife with some amazing diving.

When it comes to diving, Mexico has several exciting dive experiences on offer. The best known area is Playa del Carmen with its steep walls and cenotes, it is known as one of the most varied dive areas in the world. 

Cozumel was put on the dive map by legendary Jaques Cousteau, thanks to its many ”drop offs”, rich colours and stunning formations. A ferry ride across the channel from Playa del Carmen is all that is needed to reach the island and enjoy the fantastic corals, tunnels and passageways. Our partner in Playa arranges full day excursions for divers to Cozumel, and it is a normal component of our dive packages. 

Further south from Playa del Carmen is Xcalak, a smaller, non-tourist area that lies close to the border to Belize. A marine protected area, the diving is pristine on the unique dive sites that see fewer divers than the reefs to the north. Outside of Xcalak is Chinchorro Bank, Mexico's only atoll, and home to the world's largest population of American crocodiles, a plethora of wrecks and healthy corals.
