This was my 6th trip to Cozumel and I find more marine life than ever. Every dive we saw turtles and nurse sharks, and of course a lot of tropicals. Cozumel is a must and drift diving is an experience you must not forget - Mario
You can dive in Mexico all year round. The air temperature drops slightly in January to a warm mid 20s but is generally around 30 for the rest of the year. There is slightly more chance of rain in our summer months but the water temperatures are a constant 27-30 so no matter when you go to Mexico, you only need your warm water gear and away you go!
The cenotes are one of the most famous aspects of diving in Mexico but this is not all there is! The reefs are packed with marine life big and small:
- Cenotes - Dos Ojos and Chac Mool are top sites
- Bull sharks
- Whalesharks (Jun-Sep)
- Eagle rays
- Big snapper schools
Top dive sites to visit: Palancar Reef, Punta Sur and Santa Rosa Wall are great dives in addition to the cenotes
Scuba Travel Tips
Whilst we love the diving the food in Mexico is also tasty and a real highlight once the diving is done. Eating out is great value too. Leave yourself some time to explore Cozumel island one evening and catch the last ferry back in the evening. You do not need a visa to enter Mexico with a valid (6 months mins to run) UK passport.
