Stunning Snorkelling and Diving

Snorkelling and Diving 

Holidays to the Mayan Riviera offer unique coral reefs and cenotes (sinkholes) that are splendid for snorkellers to explore.

Strap on your own snorkelling gear and swim out from the shore or take an organised trip to deeper waters. Puerto Morelos offers a large coral reef chain where the coral is often just six feet below the surface, or head to the caves at Tak Be Ha and Hilario's Well.

Numerous scuba diving centres offer dive courses, cenote diving and ocean diving through the area. Some of the best is located around the island of Cozumel or Pared Verde, Playa Del Carmen's signature reef dive.
