In Topic: Playa del Carmen / Cozumel / Isla Mujeres (or another whale shark place)

05 July 2012 - 03:05 AM

Thanks for the replies!

A couple of questions to add:
- Is it all the same if we book whale shark snorkeling at Isla Mujeres while we are there, one day before going on the trip? Or should we book in advance?
- Can one do the following kind of custom day trip: 1 dive at a Cenote (which one?) + see 1 or two of the Mayan pyramids (Chichen Itza / Uxmal / another one?)
- Which dive operator do you recommend at:
* Isla Mujeres (diving / snorkeling)
* Cozumel (diving)
* Playa del Carmen (Cenote / pyramids)

From their website:

"The cost for tours that allow guests to swim with whale sharks is set by the Mexican governing body, at $125 USD minimum."

WOW. Is it really that expensive everywhere..? ;)

I go to Cancun just about every August to swim with the whale sharks off of Isla Mujeres, dive the cenotes and Cozumel. I stay in Cancun since it is more convenient and take the ferry to Cozumel when we dive there. To spend the whole day with the whale sharks we rent a private boat rather then taking one of the crowded tour boats. Look at: http://www.mydeeplife.com/ I have used them going on 5 yrs now and have been pleased with Eduardo's service.
