What to do in Mahahual: diving in front of Hotel Maya Luna
Just in front of Maya Luna stretches the “Mesoamerican Barrier Reef” also know 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. (For a rather complete list with photos of fish, coral, sponge, alges, reptiles, mammals : Florent’s Guide To The Florida, Bahamas & Caribbean Reefs/index_all.html)
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.
We work most of the time with one of the diveshops in and around Mahahual who attend to small groups. If possible, the boat will pick you up at Hotel Maya Luna and bring you back to your bungalow after diving or in between 2 dives. They all offer diving courses like PADI and discover dives. Discover all the beauty that Mahahual diving in front of our coast has to offer. You choose if you want to do 1, 2 or even 3 tanks a day.

Of course you can also make arrangements yourself with one of the diveshops in and around Mahahual. Most of the diveshops offer also full scuba diving courses with International recognised PADI diplomas. Some of them organise trips to Chinchorro Bank, keep in mind that you will always need good weather and a minimum of 6 people to go there.
