Mahahual is one of the best places in the Mexican Caribbean to carry out this activity, due to the contrast of the vegetation and the different scenarios in which it can be performed.

One of the best places is undoubtedly the Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve, which is part of the second largest barrier reef in the world and is the largest coral atoll in Mexico. Its seabed is a true cemetery, since remains of more than eighteen ships have been found, sunk between 1600 and 1800 and others dating from more recent years.

Another of the best places in the area to practice scuba diving is Xcalak, one of the last virgin beaches in Mexico, which is approximately one hour from Mahahual. It is a place of great wealth of marine flora and fauna where you can find turtles, lobsters and colorful fish.
