Riviera Maya Diving, Snorkelling & Scuba-Diving
A harmonious blend of nature and luxury, Banyan Tree Mayakoba takes the Caribbean lifestyle to new heights on Mexico's famous Riviera Maya coast. Situated within the private gated integrated resort development of Mayakoba, Banyan Tree enchants with the romance of travel, fused with a unique sense of tranquil and private space, and complemented by touches of our signature Asian hospitality and warmth. The secure compound is accessible only to guests of the Mayakoba development, providing additional peace of mind when traveling to the Riviera Maya.
Along this coast, home to the second-largest coral reef in the world stretching from the Yucatán to Guatemala, Mayakoba has made its distinction by being a carefully maintained ecosystem of dunes, mangroves and freshwater lagoons.
Diving in Riviera Maya
First made famous by famed French marine pioneer Jacques Cousteau in 1961, Cozumel is today one of the world's premier diving and snorkeling destinations known for its warm crystal clear waters and coral gardens. It is accessible via hourly ferry services from Playa del Carmen. Unique to the Yucatán Peninsula, cenotes - sinkholes with exposed rocky edges containing groundwater - can be explored by snorkelers and scuba divers.
Rock formations and incredible visibility of up to 200 meters make for an exceptional dive experience. Several species of blind fish and shrimp can be commonly seen in the cavern.
