Morelos diving offers a large variety of marine life on one of the most beautiful
reefs in the world. The dives inside the reef can be from shallow
up to dives where you can see large coral formations at greater
depths. For more advanced divers there a few wrecks and the
cenotes to explore.
pleasant water temperatures ranging from 25-30°C/(77-85°F)
and the good visibility 20-40 metres (60-120ft) makes scuba
diving possible all year round.
newest Marine National Park on the Arrecife de Puerto
Moleros has extraordinary marine life. This coral reef, the
second largest in the world is home to the smallest beautifully
colored fish and crustaceans as well as stingrays, turtles
and graceful eagle rays.
Moleros has easy access to various dive sites ranging
from very easy to very challenging ones. For those who are looking
for some relaxed diving there are some beautiful shallow reef
formations in water of 40 feet/12 meters depth where you can
dive among turtles, schools of colorful fish, eagle
rays, and many species of crabs and lobsters only to
name a few.
wreck lovers, there are two accesible wrecks near Puerto
Moleros. The nearest is the C-56, a navy boat that has beautiful
coral and which is home to very large pelagics at 60-90 feet/18-27
meters). For more experienced divers there's the Tulum which
is at a depth of about 120 feet/36 meters.
Cenote diving is not to missed! Enjoy the cenotes where
visibility is 150 feet/50 metres and the dives between 30-60
feet/9-16 metres and see the gracious formations of stalactites
and stalagmites. Throughout the centuries a system of
underground caverns was formed on this limestone peninsula
unique in the world. The porous surface allowed rainwater to
create and fill caverns whose water's search for an exit caused
parts of the surface to collapse forming what we call cenotes
(from the Mayan 'dzonot'). These cenotes are the gateway into
an underworld aquatic system.
