Undersea World

Puerto Aventuras is one of the most diver-friendly communities in the Riviera Maya. Here you’ll find several small operators willing to show you the wonders of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. This section of the reef lies about 5-10 minutes offshore by boat and contains lush coral gardens and deep cuts or canyons dropping to 130 feet (40 meters). There’s also the Mama Vina Wreck, suitable to advanced divers.

A unique experience is diving at the Cave of the Sleeping Sharks where on the bottom of the ocean a large group of reef, bull, and nurse sharks can be seen sleeping. At a depth of 20-30 meters, this dive site is recommended for advanced divers.

The current near Puerto Aventuras is mild, making this a great place for beginners and experts alike. If you’re looking to gain an initial certification or learn a new skill, Puerto Aventuras is the perfect environment.

Mama Vina Wreck

Mama Vina Wreck, just in front of Xcaret Eco Park, is a great wreck for advanced divers. It begins at 60 feet (20 meters). An old shrimp boat that was intentionally sunk in 1995, has since developed an artificial reef and today belongs to one of the top dive sites on the Riviera Maya. Almost intact, it lies in approx. 21-30m depth with its bow facing the predominant south-north current head on.
