Majahual, Costa Maya

ScubaDivingFanClub asked:

Majahual (also written Mahahual) is located in southern Quintana Roo, Mexico, in a long coastal strip known as Costa Maya. Natural continuation of the Riviera Maya, the Costa Maya has all the attractions of the former, but without the overcrowding. It's full of virgin places, deserted beaches, estuaries, lagoons and coral reefs in perfect condition, thanks to the local environmental awareness. It is incredible that Majahual is still a well-kept secret.

Being among the first to discover it is a must, especially if diving is your passion. From Punta Herrero to Xcalak there are countless dive sites that have no name and have yet to be explored. Here you will not see other bubbles that of those your buddies. If this wouldn't be enough, the Banco Chinchorro awaits 31 kms - 17 nautical miles offshore. Chinchorro is the largest coral atoll in the northern hemisphere and one of the least dived in the planet. So, What are you waiting for?
