Destinations & Adventures

Explore The Undersea World of Akumal

With 12 dive sites, Akumal in Mexico’s Riviera Maya is known for its location at the top of the Belize Barrier Reef. These dive sites offer a huge variety of dive sites and environments from coral reefs to short tunnels. The water is warm and visibility is generally excellent. Almost all sites are protected from heavy current. However, some sites may be deeper than an Open Water certificate allows, making Akumal a great dive location for beginners and advanced divers alike.

Operators in Akumal use speedboats to deliver divers to the offshore reefs. Almost all of the dive sites are within 7 minutes of shore. 

Beginners should try out reef dives closer to shore such as Las Redes and Dick’s Reef. Those who can dive deeper will enjoy Xaak and Trigger Fish.

 

Experience The Undersea World of Akumal

There are a total of 12 dive sites in the Akumal area. These can be divided into shallow dives and deep dives more suitable to advanced divers.

On the shallow side, Las Redes, Motorcycle Reef, Dick’s Reef and Yal-Ku all lie at 60 feet (18 meters) or less and feature soft coral reefs with plenty of marine life.

For divers with more than an Open Water certification, Tzimin-Ha, Xaak, Gonzalo’s Reef and Trigger Fish are deeper reef dives. Most of these dives sites are punctuated by brilliant coral patches made visible through crystal clear visibility.

Don’t forget about diving in the cenotes either. One of the best for diving, Dos Ojos Caverns, is just around the corner and doesn’t require a special certification to dive.

Cenote Dive Sites

CHIKIN HA

Located approximately 25 km from Playa del Carmen, Cenote Chikin Ha is the first cenote in a system that connects several cenotes through more than 10km of underwater passages. During the dive, you will be making your way to the nearby Rainbow Cenote. Upon reaching a depth of about 10m, strange visual effects, can be seen as salt water and fresh water start to mix. Descend a couple of meters into the salt water and experience a comfortable change in temperature as salt water is warmer than fresh water. There are 2 dives possible in Chikin Ha.

ANGELITA

The furthest Cenote we travel to is 40 minutes away but is worth the journey for experienced divers. “Little Angel” is hidden away in the jungle and offers something totally different from the other Cenotes. No big rooms or passages, this is a deep opening, dropping to 60m(200ft).The top 27m(90ft) is fresh water with crystal clear visibility and then below is salt water, entering from the sea. The defining layer at 28/29m (92-95ft) is Hydrogen Sulfide, giving the appearance of having reached the bottom! As you go down through this layer you will feel as if you are looking back up at the clouds! A truly strange experience this Cenote dive is for Advanced divers only!

TAJMA HA

This cenote is situated 10min north of Akumal. The cavern tour, takes the diver from the entrance into a wide room underneath an air filled bat cave. Here light enters through holes in the ceiling and penetrates the water like laser beams during the summer months. Along the cavern floor you will find hundreds of stalactites lying in the sediment. Continuing the dive, you enter the sugar bowl, a second small cenote where you can see an amazing light show on sunny days. Tajma Ha is decorated with stalactites and stalagmites and plenty of hidden fossils can be spotted if you look for them.

GRAN CENOTE

Just 25 minutes south of Akumal we find Gran Cenote, one of the easiest for access. 3 different “rooms” laid out in a semi-circle with a central island. Here again we have some wonderful light effects which only serve to enhance the large formations of stalactites and stalagmites. The whole place looks like a huge cathedral.

Cenote Dive Sites

CHAAC MOOL

Just 15 minutes north of Akumal, Chac Mool is considered one of the most spectacular on the peninsula. In many parts of the system sunlight pours in through small openings, many formed by tree roots, giving a truly awesome light display in the water. Several “rooms” are connected by short passages and as you dive you will see many small tree roots that have penetrated the soft rock in search of water. Here also you can encounter a Halocline, where salt water enters the system from the ocean and meets the fresh water creating this strange effect. Again Chac Mool offers 2 dives.

EL PIT

Approximately 10 minutes south of Akumal and just 2,8km past Dos Ojos you find El Pit. Arrive early for a morning deep dive and the best light penetration. Once in the water stop and appreciate the tranquil surrounding that tower above. Descend in the middle of the cenote through a shallow halocline towards the hygrogen sulfide cloud at 30 meters. Like Angelita tree branches eerily protrude from the cloud what seems to be the cavern floor becomes visible. Continue your dive above the cloud exploring the cavernous overhang of the cenote before coming up to the sloping ceiling at 10 meters. Here you find stalactites of all shapes and sizes but also remember to look up and watch the laser beams of sunlight penetrating the gash from below.

DOS OJOS

Just 10 minutes away from us by car, including a 2km drive into the jungle! Two huge open pools look up at you (Mayan ,- Dos Ojos means “Two Eyes”). These 2 large openings allow for spectacular light effects as divers approach them during their dives. Dos Ojos is claimed to be part of one of the largest underground river systems, (connecting several other local smaller Cenotes via smaller cave passages), but the main Cenote is made up of wide passages and chambers, considered to be some of the biggest on the peninsula

Dos Ojos allows for two separate dive routes, named Barbie Line and Bat Cave! Each dive is approximately 40-45 minutes with a maximum depth of just 14m (45ft).
