Jungle, flora and fauna, archaeological sites, solitary beaches, a turquoise-colored sea with crystal-clear water which turns to silver by moonlight, the fantasy and warmth of the tropics, the mystery of the millenary culture which lives on in the Maya people, are just some of the qualities which have turned the Riviera Maya into a destination which can compete favorably with all the rest of the Caribbean's tourist destinations.
Riviera Maya is one of Mexico’s most desired destinations for scuba divers and snorkelers. The destination boasts the Great Mesoamerican Reef, the world’s largest coral barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere and one of the world’s largest systems of cenotes, mystical fresh water sinkholes hidden in the jungle filled with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites that date from millions of years ago. The cenotes were sacred for the Mayas and were often used for ceremonies and rituals. The diving experts in the region are committed to catering to all levels of diving experience to ensure all visitors to the Riviera Maya can partake in the sport.
