About Paradise Divers
Paradise Divers at Marina Paraiso is a dive shop on Isla Mujeres Mexico and a PADI Dive Resort situated 20 minutes from the coast of the popular holiday destination of Cancun.
Very different to the mainland, diving from this quirky little island is as diverse as the island itself.
Most popular is the diving in the Marine Parks of Manchones, Punta Sur and Punta Nizuc. Here the marine life is varied and plentiful, schools of tang and wrasse co habitate with Grouper and Sea Turtles. Special licences are needed to dive in the protected area and we are continuing the efforts of the marine park to preserve these areas of natural beauty.
Drift diving is available off the MesoAmericana reef – the beginning of the second largest barrier reef in the world after the Great barrier reef. These advanced dives are popular as you drift along, watching Barracuda hold their position in the strong currents and seeing the vibrant coral whizz past.
There are a number of shipwrecks in the area situated at various depths and as divers ourselves we know no vacation is complete without at least diving 1 shipwreck.
Many dive groups come over to our dive center to see the incredible underwater museum (MUSA). 400 statues have been built as a way to promote growth of coral and marine life. It is now one of the largest and most popular artificial reefs in the world.
We also offer Cenote diving which allows you to discover the eerie underwater caverns that are ubiquitous in the Yucatan Peninsula.
Our guides are PADI professional Instructors with years of experience diving worldwide particularly in the waters of the Caribbean. As professionals we are concerned about the preservation of the oceans and our intention is to show you the best diving Isla Mujeres has to offer without damaging our precious environment.
