Playa del Carmen Scuba Diving Tours

Some of the most beautiful underwater experiences exist near Playa del Carmen’s gorgeous beaches in the turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.  Travelers from all over the world visit the area for its spectacular snorkeling, diving, and fishing.  Dive shops offering snorkel and scuba rentals are scattered across the beaches and side streets, and are even available at some of the resorts.

The principal feature that draws aquatic sports enthusiasts to the area are the coral reefs.  This part of the Caribbean Sea contains the largest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere, the great Mesoamerican Barrier Reef.  Scuba divers and snorkelers know about the distinctive coral reef formations with their vast array of exquisite fish and marine life harboring in its colorful crevices.
