Akumal is one of our scuba diving destinations. It offers a lovely reef/wall experience and epic cenote diving all in one beautiful location. The Akumal reef is fantastic with turtles, coral reef and marine life and of course world class cenote diving led by our favourite Cave Explorer Matt Mandziuk and friends.

May is the ideal time to dive this area. Akumal literally translates to “Land of Turtles” and May marks the start of the turtle breeding season! PLUS the best conditions in the Cenotes are spring and summer.

Cenote Diving is magical and Akumal & Tulum offer some of the best known cenote diving in Mexico. The Cenotes (caverns) are the access to a huge network of underground freshwater rivers. Mother Nature’s veins keep ancient secrets and provide testimony of past cultures and extinct animals.

These underground rivers are considered top class cavern and cave diving.

The guided cenote dives include introduction to overhead environment diving procedures including underwater communication with flashlights, team diving protocols, emergency procedures, buoyancy control and gas consumption rules.

Cenote divers are not required to be cave certified. A full in-depth briefing will be provided, the dive will be guided by a certified Cave Instructor and group sizes are no larger than 4 divers. Please note divers are required to have a minimum 30 dives, advanced certification and good buoyancy and trim to ensure the safety and enjoyment for the whole group.
