The Riviera Maya is undoubtedly the best tourist area in Mexico and gives you the opportunity to enjoy some scuba diving tours as well as snorkeling with turtles in their natural habitat.
Scuba diving tours in the Riviera Maya
The Riviera Maya owes most of its economy to both the local and international tourism and even today many sites in the Rivera Maya remain virgins.
This creates expectation in those who choose Aquaworld since they will be able to go over these areas in the different diving tours offered.
These scuba diving tours are divided into two: with one oxygen tank at shallow depths for those with little experience under water; and two tank dives, for those adventurers who want to spend more time discovering the many wonders that await underwater.
Some of the animals you might see are turtles, corals and fish from the region that will make you feel tiny in the vast ocean.
Swim next to the sea turtles in Akumal
Among all the activities you can do in the Riviera Maya we must highlight the chance to snorkel and swim next to the sea turtles in Akumal.
The name of this place is literally ‘Turtles Place‘ and it stand out for being one of the quietest places in the Rivera Maya, making it a perfect place to visit with your family and enjoy an afternoon of site relaxation with these amazing animals.
While one can perform other activities, snorkeling with turtles is definitely the main attraction.
Aquaworld guides will tell you how to swim between the friendly turtles and show you the exotic animals around the place like as manta rays and crabs.
This activity is ideal for children because the water depths are shallow and calm so it is an ideal place to get started with snorkeling.
The tour to swim with turtles includes a snack to suppress hunger and thus continue in the afternoon to the beautiful waters of Cenote Azul, where you can cool off in its cold, clear waters to complete a dream day.
