blog20 - Great Scuba Diving Awaits you in Akumal!

Just off the shores of the Riviera Maya lies the world’s largest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere and the second largest barrier reef in the world. Known as the Mesoamerican Reef, it runs from Cancun all the way to Honduras. Water temperatures range between 84 degrees F in the summer to 78 degrees F in the winter months and visibility ranges between 50 to 150 feet. All of these factors mean the Riviera Maya is a premier dive location, perfect for beginners and advanced divers. Try a free Discover Scuba clinic or PADI Resort Course or dive right in and get certified! There are specialty courses too, such as Deep Diver, Night Diver, Search and Recovery Diver, Underwater Navigator, Boat Diver, Underwater Naturalist, Drift Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy and Fish Identification.

As part of our concierge service, we are happy to book scuba diving for our villa guests without any additional cost to you. You will dive with a local PADI certified dive center, Akumal Dive Adventures, who is committed to personalized diving instruction and the safety of their students and experienced divers. Reservations are recommended, so call or email to inquire and book your diving today!
