Shangri La

Shangri-La dive site is only a short 5-minute boat ride from central Playa del Carmen. The site is easy to navigate as the reef runs parallel to the shore and you can dive it north to south or vice versa depending on what the current is doing that day.

Wildlife encounters include spotted eagle rays, nurse sharks, turtles, stingrays, moray eels, tons of reef fish, and the endemic Splendid toadfish, only found in Cozumel.
