There are so many interesting diving spots that have to be discovered!! During your vacations here I’d highly recommend taking a diving tour with any of the handful of professional diving centers here in Playa del Carmen including PADI. You will enjoy water temperatures of 26ºC. You will be amazed by the incredible aquatic life down here. From the macro to the micro life, you will see majestic turtles, rays, moray eels, parrot fishes, lobster, crabs, spider crabs, dozens and dozens of algae and various different fishes. A true happiness for all the sea lovers in this beautiful aquatic like aquarium.
Besides the sea waters, you will also have to experience the cenotes. Cenotes are deep and natural underground caves. They are also called sinkholes. They are formed by the collapse of limestone bedrock with the cleanest and clearest water you’ll ever see. As you may know, Yucatan peninsula does not have rivers. But the ground is full of subterranean water bodies that can be seen in some places: the cenotes. These big holes are famous for the water color and for the spectrum light you see under the water. These impressive caves are a great diving spot. You will never see in any other place such treasures from the nature. If you are not a diver you can always snorkel. Be sure not to go by yourself, some cenotes are labyrinths, you can easily get lost.
