Ocean Dive Sites 

The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (MBRS) -- or the Great Mayan Reef -- is the second-largest barrier reef system in the world, right off the shores of Playa del Carmen. Gorgeous coral reefs, stunning walls and plentiful marine life are just minutes away by boat. Deep dive depths range from 20 meters/70 feet to 30 meters/100 feet and shallow dives take place from 10 meters/30 feet to 18 meters/60 feet.
