Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Playa Del Carmen is located on the Riviera Maya just under an hour from Cancun Airport. This Fishermen's' village has become the favorite place for dive vacations because of the underwater river system AND rich coral reef that are home to an array of sea creatures and rich coral reefs.
The coral reef in the Riviera Maya is the second longest barrier reef.
There are different levels from 33 feet to 45 feet for diving that allow divers with little experience to experience Caribbean fish like angel fish, parrot fish, stingrays, moral eels and turtles. Some of the deeper sites might require a different level of experience.
There is a mix of things to explore from reefs to wreck diving and of course the famous caverns.
