Find the best places to snorkel to see magnificent whale sharks in a protected area, with the help of a local guide. Although they are large, the whale sharks are gentle creatures that only eat plankton, so this is a safe activity for the whole family. No specialist equipment or training is needed, as you can get close to the animals just by swimming with snorkel equipment. This is a great activity for adventurous travelers who enjoy nature and the outdoors.

Scuba dive in the Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA), one of the most successful conservation projects in the world, MUSA has quickly become one of Cancun´s top attractions. The project was launched in 2009, had the goal to create an artificial reef and help the marine life restoration in the Cancun and Isla Mujeres area.
With just 30 Ft deep (10 meters) is a perfect spot to have the best scuba diving experience in Cancun, the MUSA has more than 450 life-sized sculptures that you will be able to see face to face on your Cancun diving tour.
Diving in MUSA will make your Cancun scuba diving vacation one of a kind. You can see the positive effects of this multilateral effort since some of the first parts of the Museum have already been overrun by reef formations and distorting some of the original pieces.
These new reefs are now home to a variety of marine wildlife, you will be able to dive with all kind of reef fish and enjoy this pleasant experience.

This tour is perfect for Scuba Diving beginners. Cancun clear waters make it the perfect destination for you to try one of your first swims as a scuba diver.
The Discovery Scuba Diving is PADI`s first step to become a diver, this dive lesson is perfect for those who want to feel how is it to breathe underwater. Scuba Diving is one of the best things to do in Cancun & the Riviera Maya so don’t waste time and take on of our diving lessons where you will be instructed by a PADI prefessional.
Where will I dive?
After the Scuba Diving lesson, you will have the opportunity to go for a dive in the Mesoamerican Reef, the dive spot we do in this program is called Chitales, you can check it out in our Dive Sites page, a very beautiful reef to dive & have the experience for the first time.
The reef is very nice and easy for diving with a high probability of swimming with turtles on the last part of the dive.

Visitors on a time budget shouldn’t waste time traveling outside Cancun to go snorkeling; instead, explore the Chitales Reef just off the coast of the hotel zone. During this brief snorkeling excursion, enjoy personalized attention from your guide as you look for turtles, tropical fish, and more, alongside a maximum of just nine other travelers.
