Did you know there are all these cool things to do within five minutes of Sereno?

There are literally thousands of places to visit in Riviera Maya. You would need at least months to visit them all. Fortunately, the excellent location of Sereno, allows you to enjoy plenty of activities located just a few minutes away.

Jump off a cliff at the Taj Majal Cenote
Cliff jumping into this ama –zing Cenote is a must when visiting the Riviera Maya. With guided Cavern dives, taking you down a string of light zones creating an im-pressive underwater laser like show. The area is highly appreciated among guides and customers who return to this exact spot only to watch the change in the dive as the seasons alter (depending on the angle of the sun). Caused by lines separating the changes in salt content, Haloclines, the deeper areas turns into mirror reflections as divers pene-trate into the different layers of saltwater. A recommen-dation for the brave one: keep your eyes open during the dive as it is decorated with cave formations, stalagmites and stalactites.
Aside from the limestone formations, you will come across numerous shell and coral fossils in the Taj Majal Cenote that emphasize the 65 million year history of the Yucatan Peninsula.
Dive Cenote Azul

Cenote Azul is slightly smaller compared to similar Cenotes in the area, but a great one to visit. Be sure to get there early because once the area gets too full, the entrance gets cut off. The grounds are well maintained: with a great jump off point and a wooden lounging deck located just above the cenote. To make the swim even more interesting, bring your own mask or rent one onsite and snorkel to get the experience of being in a live aquarium. With Cenote Azul as home to a large quantity of local fish species, this makes it a great place to snorkel.

Snorkel right off our beach and see the second largest living coral reef on the planet (the Great Mayan Reef System) only surpassed by the Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Mayan Reef, also called Meso-american Barrier Reef System, is located off the coasts of Cancun and the Mayan Riviera. It stretches more than 620 miles which makes it the second largest reef in the world, only the Great Barrier Reef of Australia is bigger.

The wonderful Mayan Reef is born at Cabo Catoche, on the north of Quintana Roo, and extends to the coasts of Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. This sub-marine paradise is one of the hot spots in the world to scuba dive and snorkeling thanks to the other worldly transparency of the Mexican Ca -ribbean, allowing sunlight to reach great depths. This biodi-versity jewel hosts an enormous amount of organisms in more than 65 mixes of coral and 500 fish species, including lobster, pink snail, white, hawksbill and caguama turtles, dol-phins and whale sharks.

Visit the broken dock with the kids

Just a few steps away from Sereno, is a charming broken dock where the kids can turn themselves into pirates for an hour or two. As always in Riviera Maya, you can go for a swim as well.
