Dive Paradise

Discover the beauty of Cozumel's underwater world with our week-long diving itinerary. Your adventure begins with five days of double-tank boat dives, starting on Sunday and ending on Thursday. Additionally, we've scheduled daily house reef dives, offering a variety of underwater experiences.

For those seeking extra excitement, we offer optional night boat dives at an additional cost, as well as shore day and night dives. Nitrox is recommended for the boat dives, but not needed for the shallow reef dives in front of the hotel.

 

For those that aren't certified you can get certified in paradise or take advantage of our snorkeling trips to El Cielo and other fun activities. 

 

Diving in Cozumel caters to divers of all skill levels, with exceptional visibility ranging from 60 to 90 feet, mild currents ideal for drifting, awe-inspiring underwater walls, and water temperatures in the pleasant mid to upper-80s throughout the year. We've partnered with Dive Paradise, ensuring a top-notch diving experience. Conveniently, our pick-up and drop-off points are right at the hotel dock, and dive lockers are readily accessible down by the dock.

 

Accommodation Details

We offer various room options to cater to your preferences. Choose from king-size and double beds, with a limited number of triple rooms available. For added privacy, private rooms are also available for an extra charge. Please inform us at the time of reservation about your room preference and, if applicable, your rooming partner.

 

Airport Access

The most convenient airport to fly into is Cozumel (CZM). The journey from the airport to the hotel is quick and cost-effective, allowing you to start your adventure promptly.

Alternatively, you can opt for Cancun (CUN) as your arrival airport, but this choice will extend your travel time. From Cancun, you'll need to take a bus, taxi, or shuttle to the ferry in Playa Del Carmen, then embark on a ferry ride to Cozumel, followed by a taxi to the hotel. This route adds approximately 2-3 hours to your journey. Choose your arrival point wisely for a smoother start to your Cozumel diving experience.
