Tailor-made holidays to Mexico are on the up as more divers look to explore this varied destination, says UK tour operator Diverse Travel.
With white sand beaches, world-class scuba diving, quality lodgings, Mayan ruins and Eco-tours, the Riviera Maya and Cozumel on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula are perfect for divers and non-divers alike. Mix diving with culture, shopping and adventure and it’s the perfect recipe for that dive holiday with a difference.
Over 3,000 cenotes (cave diving), classic wall diving and the largest natural barrier reef in the northern hemisphere sit alongside over 3,000 years of Mayan civilization and hidden underwater worlds. Explore beautiful reefs, colourful coral formations and an amazing variety of marine life.
Cozumel, Mexico’s biggest island, lies just 12 miles off the east coast. Here you’ll find the Palancar Reef system, once described by Jacques Cousteau as one of the best on the planet. Cozumel offers superb wall diving, great resorts and beaches too. Experience the clear waters of an ancient Mayan cenote and encounter big fish like bull sharks, sailfish and whale sharks.
This is a year-round dive destination with average temperatures of 25.5C. The Yucatan offers organised bull shark dives (Nov-Mar), whale shark snorkelling (Jun-Aug) and even sailfish dives (Feb-Mar).
Resort prices start from £1549 per person for a 7-night package based on twin share at Scuba Club Cozumel including return flights from London Heathrow to Cancun, all meals, 5 days’ diving with two boat dives a day plus unlimited beach diving and transfers.
With over twenty years of dive centre and resort management, the Diverse Travel team has the experience to deliver memorable diving holidays all covered by full financial ATOL protection.
