What to do in Mahahual – Diving

Just in front of Hotel Maya Luna stretches the “Meso American Barrier Reef” . This Reef is also known as the “Great Mayan Reef” or “Jewel of the Caribbean”. It is a beautiful reef inhabited by a great variety of coral, sponges and hundreds of different kinds of tropical fish. A true divers paradise. In front of our hotel and along the whole coast there are many beautiful diving places, from 3 to 60 meters deep. And of course further off-shore there is Chinchorro Bank.

Diving in front of Hotel Maya Luna

Discover all the beauty that Mahahual has to offer. Divers who come to Hotel Maya Luna can arrange their dives with “Dive and Adventure”, our in-house dive shop. No need to go by car somewhere. The boat will pick you up at Hotel Maya Luna. And of course they will bring you back to your bungalow afterwards. Dive and Adventure also offers full scuba diving courses with International recognized PADI diplomas.

Never been diving but want to try it? Then a discover dive is the perfect thing to do. With some theory and one very shallow dive you decide afterwards if diving is your thing or not. Ask us for special dive arrangements!
Some of the dive shops in town organize trips to Chinchorro Bank.  Keep in mind that you will always need good weather and a minimum of 6 people to go there.
