Since Mexico is well-versed in luxury escapes, you'll find all
manner of outstanding hotels close to the best dive sites. Whether
you choose to stay at the
Viceroy Riviera Maya (just outside of Playa Del Carmen),
Posada de las Flores (a boutique hotel in La Paz), or one of
our other favourites, we have no doubt you'll sleep soundly after a
day of diving.
Both Playa Del Carmen and La Paz are home to wonderful dive
sites, each offering different underwater experiences. Playa Del
Carmen has numerous spots that are a short boat ride from the
shore, with beautiful coral gardens at sites like Cerebros and
Moc-Che Deep. While La Paz also has wonderful reefs, it's a good
destination for divers looking to encounter larger creatures, such
as hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and manta rays at El Bajo, as
well as sea lions at Los Islotes.
Socorro Island and Guadalupe, two of Mexico's greatest dive
destinations, are only accessible via liveaboard. For luxury diving
in Mexico, we highly recommend staying aboard the
Nautilus Belle Amie, a gorgeous 135ft liveaboard with
Socorro Island, on the remote Revillagigedo Archipelago, is
known for its manta ray and shark encounters, with no less than ten
species of shark found in the area. Guadelupe on the other hand, is
renowned primarily for great white sharks, although you may spot
Californian sea lions, northern elephant seals and Guadalupe fur
seals in the water.
A luxury diving holiday to Mexico doesn't have to be all about
diving. On rest days, you could find yourself exploring enchanting
cenotes, visiting Mayan temples or simply relaxing on the beach.
It's also possible to explore several areas of Mexico during a
single trip, such as combining a relaxing stay in La Paz with a few
days diving on Socorro Island.
