Diving in Yucatán Peninsula

Diving in the Yucatan Peninsula is a thrilling experience. This region is especially known for its cultural richness. Visit the island of Cozumel, declared by Jacques Cousteau “the most spectacular dive site in the world“ for its beauty and unique wildlife. This island is only accessible by ferry boat or airplane. Every part of your trip to Cozumel will be full of adventure as you go wall diving and explore countless swim-throughs. You can also expect to see vast marine life in Cozumel with countless reefs. Cancun and Playa del Carmen are diving paradises ideal for descent diving. No matter which spots in the Yucatan Peninsula you decide to visit, this is a dream destination and a region perfect for adventure seekers. Ancient, mystical, crystal-clear watered cenotes, also known by the Mayans as “the passage to the underworld” await you. In order to arrive at the cenotes, you must first go through the jungles of the interior area; once there, you can explore miles of underground rivers. Some of the cenotes you can visit are: Ik Kil, Yokdzonot, and Chihuán. Take some amazing photos in Holbox and Isla Mujeres, at the top of the peninsula, and go snorkeling with migratory whale sharks.
