The Yucatan Peninsula lies next to the Mesoamerica Reef, the largest reef in the Western hemisphere and the second largest in the world after the Great Barrier Reef. Expect regular encounters with sharks, rays, turtles, and dolphins. Also, Yucatan offers a unique diving experience: Cenotes. These should be on every diver’s shortlist and the good news is that you don’t need a cave diving certificate because they are partly open. So whenever you dive in Yucatan, your trip is not complete without diving at least one of these unique sinkholes in the jungle.
Your choice of location depends on your wishes, budget and the people that accompany you (i.e. non-divers) — see the ‘where to go’ section for a breakdown of the various locations or choose one of them below.
