Diving in Playa del Carmen

The Caribbean coast of Mexico is part of the second largest coral reef in the world, the Mesoamerican Reef. Starting north of Cancun, the reef heads south along the Mexican coast, continuing through Belize, Guatemala to the Caribbean islands of Honduras. The reef therefore reaches a total length of almost 1000 kilometers and thus offers an almost innumerable number of dive sites.


Diving in Playa del Carmen is enjoyable all year round due to the warm temperatures and consistently good visibility. Beginners and experienced divers are very satisfied.
Playa del Carmen offers us several coastal reefs. A long reef at 10-12m depth is home to lots of Caribbean marine life, encounters with large schools of fish, many puffers, Caribbean lobsters, large rays, tons of turtles and much more. If you have a good eye, you can see some seahorses even at shallow depths.


The topography of the ground begins with a shallow reef, then moving away from the coast we cross a wide sandbank until we find ourselves at a depth of 20-23 meters in the deepest and closest reefs. In these depths there is a barrier reef that reaches a maximum height of 10 meters, with a moderate current and a maximum depth of 30 meters.

These dives are more suitable for experienced divers or those who want to get their first deep diving experience. In these deep waters, in addition to giant moray eels, crabs, eagle rays in the winter months, there is often a chance of finding bull sharks or sailfish.
