In Topic: mexico whale sharks/cenotes from cancun

11 May 2015 - 04:42 PM

I am also planning a similar trip this year in July.


4-5 days in Isla Mujeres (3 days swim with WS)

4-5 days in Cancun or Playa Del Carmen (3 days diving Cenotes)

Few days topside travel 


This is a big trip for me , travelling from Oz.


I have a few questions.

1. Is it worth travelling to Cuba/Havana for 2 -3 days (UK passport). Would i be able to arrange travel package to Havana from a travel agent in cancun for this trip.

2. What is best place to stay for 3 days diving Cenotes (Cancun or PDC?)

3.For topside attractions is it better being based in Cancun or PDC , e.g for day trip to Chichen Itza 

​4. Any hotel recommendations for PDC/Cancun or IM?

In Topic: Palau vs Rangiroa/Fakarava vs Komodo vs ??

Definitely recommend Fakarava/Rangiroa.


I am just back from a 2 week trip and it was the best land base diving i have done. 

So many sharks, i saw a Tiger shark, great hammerhead, several silver tips, marlin, manta and hundreds and hundreds of reef sharks.


Palau is good and offers more variety. i.e caverns, wrecks , jellyfish lake, mantas , but its not as sharky. However topside is beautiful and has interesting war history. However Palau is very busy these days. Seems like the Chinese are starting to visit and a lot of the hotels were book solid when i tried to visit this year.


Maldives was ok. I did not see many sharks , rays but its a nice place.


Komodo is amazing for macro and general fishlife/reefs, however not sharky.


Fakarava is very nice topside,S Pacific paradise.
