Top 5 Dive Sites of Cancun
Punta Negra Reef
Punta Negra is a Cancún reef and local favorite. Ask your dive master to take you to Punta Negra.
No name reef
The No Name Reef was so christened by local divers who love the place. It’s one of Cancun’s favorite dive sites, full of life and color.
Looking for a one of a kind experience? Dive the Jason de Caires Taylor Underwater Sculpture Museum (MUSA) during a fascinating two-tank, two site dive excursion. Jason Taylor is an internationally recognized artist with over 600 marine statues to his credit, all of which now sit on ocean floors around the world creating artificial reefs which, as alternative attractions, mitigate the stress on the area’s natural reefs. In Cancun as elsewhere, the results have been spectacular; the sculptures are now home to spiny lobsters, shiny barracuda and an array of tropical fish. Visit this unexpected, underwater world and witness man-made art merge with a natural ecosystem in a positive, supportive way. The second dive takes you to a nearby, natural coral reef alive with tropical fish, lobsters, moray eels and manta rays. A super excursion.
Grampin is another great Cancun reef, if one of the lesser known. People always think ‘Cozumel’ when the subject of diving comes up, but Cancun’s reefs have much to offer novice and experienced divers both.
Aristos Reef and San Toribio
Aristos Reef and San Toribio are two more of Cancun’s archipelago of great reefs. Clearwater, high visibility, abundance of marine life and agreeable water temperature. Ask your dive master for the reefs by name.
