A Diver’s Guide to Riviera Maya

Located south of Cancun, Riviera Maya offers different types of dives along the Caribbean coast.

Discover Mayan ruins in Tulum and in Coba – the cultural tours offered to Riviera Maya and Cozumel guests.

Our dive center staff will be happy to help you arrange this day excursion to the only Mayan temple built right near the azure blue Caribbean sea, and which can be reached within 25min from Puerto Aventuras and 40 min from Playa del Carmen.

Riviera Maya is a true marvel not only underwater but also on the surface.

Riviera Maya is a place where fresh water runs like rivers through underground cave systems.

Part of this land collapsed after the last ice age more than 8,000 years ago, creating sinkholes called CENOTES, derived from the Mayan word “Dzonot” which means sacred well and were considered the entrance to the mythical underworld by the ancient Mayas.

The perfect location to start exploring the Riviera Maya to the North and South is Playa del Carmen. Pro Dive International features several dive centers to the north and south of Playa del Carmen, along the Riviera Maya. Each is recognized with the National Geographic and Green Star awards.

From Riviera Maya, you can take a ferry and go to Cozumel. Pro Dive International operate their own dive centers and boats in Cozumel, provides multi-lingual staff onsite, and possesses all necessary permits and licenses required to access the National Marine Park. We will help you arrange your day trip including transfers, 2 dives at different reefs, buffet lunch and drinks if you start with us from your hotel on the Riviera Maya. However, if you prefer to get to Cozumel by yourself, please simply let us know to be able to inform our staff at the Allegro Cozumel to be prepared for your arrival.

There are many vibrant reefs along Riviera Maya.  You can explore them from one of our dive centers located in the following hotels:
