Caribbean Sea… Two words immediately brought to mind pictures of white sand beaches, fringed with palm trees and turquoise waters. The Yucatan Peninsula offers just that… and more!
Beautiful reef dives along the shore – the second largest barrier reef in the world runs along the coast – impressive drop-offs in Cozumel encounters with gentle sea turtles or gracious eagle rays… not to mention the uniqueness of the dives in the Cenotes, atmospheric caves that punctuate the land, hidden under the jungle canopy.
Dune, a growing network already present in five destinations (Red Sea, Indonesia, Maldives, Mediterranean and, yes, Mexico) first chose Playa del Carmen to set up a dive centre in 2016. This year, we are proud to announce the launch of our Cozumel base, allowing us to extend the range of activities for the divers who visit us. Two dive centres, one goal – whether you prefer the lush gardens and cocoon-like surroundings of our dive centre in Playa, or the easy access to the National Marine Park from our dive centre on Cozumel, you’ll be sure to find the premises that suit you best!
Two tank dives, morning and afternoon departures, night dives from the shore in Cozumel, out-of-this-world dives in Cenotes, snorkelling with whalesharks off Isla Mujeres, bull sharks on a white sand bottom… Mix and match for the perfect diving holiday! Just be sure to keep some free time to visit the Mayan ruins in the area: the giant pyramids of Chichen Itza, Tulum and its temples overlooking the sea…
Last but not least, if you’ve ever dreamed of turning a holiday hobby into a lifestyle, we run some of the best Instructor Development Courses in Playa. Challenging, fun, empowering… What started out as a simple holiday may very well turn into a life-changing experience! We’re just saying…
TOP DIVE SITE
SÀBALOS – This Playa del Carmen dive site is a perfect sample of Caribbean dives. Shallow white sand, coral bommies here and there, the fringing reef… and life! Life everywhere! Myriads of colourful fish, hidden crustaceans, corals, a random turtle passing by… And, in winter, the ballet of the eagle rays.
