You will find a remarkably pristine, vibrant reef system with a number of unique dive sites that are worth a visit in their own right, many of which are starting to become must-do´s for many experienced divers.
The majority of our divers are either experienced divers in-the-know (many dive professionals vacation here), or avid divers or prospective divers who have taken the time to locate an unspoiled destination, away from mainstream resort destinations and tourists (don´t let Tulum fool you!).
Xcalak offers dozens of fantastic dive sites between 5-30 minutes by boat. You might have heard of La Poza, also known as ‘The Tarpon Hole’, the only formation of its type in the whole Meso-American Barrier Reef System or La Chimenea, a massive chimney in the reef. The deep walls of Hob Na and Santa Julia on the north end of the park are ideal for deep technical dives, with the advantage that you can swim from any depth (we´ve never seen the bottom) up to 30ft without ever leaving the reef. The 250ft canyons filled with huge black coral colonies and massive fluorescent-colored sponges will change your take on what a dramatic wall looks like.
