Scuba Diving for Certifies Divers

Scuba Diving for Certifies Divers

For visitors who dream of floating weightlessly in the water, scuba diving opportunities abound. The Mexican Caribbean is replete with marine life and ecological formations, and the clear, fresh waters welcome guests’ daily explorations. Drift dives are common; most sites have a steady, northerly current that carries divers gently past the reef, so that it is easy to relax as the scenery moves by. As the region is blessed with good visibility and comfortable temperatures (averaging about 26 C/78F), even inexperienced divers can get acclimated quickly, and advanced divers will find it easy to probe the ocean’s depths.



Combine swimming and snorkeling in one of the region’s most beautiful eco-parks. Experience the largest underground river system in the world with a sea-snorkeling adventure. As visitors descend into this magical underground environment, they will encounter many incomparable subterranean marvels, from rare marine life to spectacular geographical formations. Land transportation is provided to both places.

The journey will continue with an expedition to some of the clearest, calmest waters in the Riviera Maya, which will again provide many snorkeling opportunities for the adventurous.

A horse is assigned according to the rider’s age and size. The ride includes a tour along the shore, which commands unbelievable views of the Caribbean sea, making each journey something to remember. Afterwards, guests can choose another activity, or simply retire to the beach club area for a drink or two.

the mayan ruins of ek eblam

Located just north of Valladolid, this is a little known historical site that is high on local flavor and low on tourists. While not as completely restored or as large as Chichen Itza or Uxmal, Ek- Balam is under active restoration and gives visitors a great overview of the entire Mayan civilization. Throughout the expedition, visitors will get the opportunity to slip into the crystal waters of a fresh Cenote (sinkhole), which are sacred places for the Mayans.

The Concierge department can arrange visits to Ek-Balam exclusively or include one of the following options:

Mayan Communities and Valladolid: A quaint township located halfway between Merida and Cancun, Valladolid has perfectly preserved its colonial flavor, with the majority of townspeople still in typical Mayan clothing. The colonial architecture surrounding the main Plaza, as well as its many historical buildings, exudes a distinctive old-world charm.

Biking and Cenote EK Balam: Visitors’ expedition to Ek Balam is followed by a jungle biking experience, and a swim in the waters of a sacred Mayan Cenote (sinkhole.)
