Dove here after Wilma and it was a wasteland. 15 years later and it is amazing again. Great easy drift dive.

Like all other dives in the area, Palancar reef is a great dive! You can swim through coral archways. I saw the biggest Lion fish I've ever seen here.

Amazing diving here! Just so alive... with other areas around the world bleaching... even just across the water off of playa del carmen it is not as alive.

Amazing snorkeling. We used Go Explora and had great customer service. The time spent at the reef was long enough to provide great views. The guides were patient and assured that everyone was safe. I will definitely do that again
