Don't stop with the Resort Dive Course, go one step further and take the PADI Open Water Certification Course. As a card carrying PADI member you'll be able to dive anywhere in the world, and what better place to start than the Mexican Caribbean.
On completion of your course, you'll enjoy a dive trip to one of the local reefs and then you'll be ready to explore further. Coral reefs stretch south from Cancun to the Belizean border and beyond. Cozumel, Akumal and Chinchorro are famous destinations in dive circles and there are many more reefs awaiting discovery.
