I will be staying at Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort in early December for two weeks. Well, I hope so, Mr. Trudeau, lol! Years ago, I got my Open Water in Koh Tao, Thailand and then went diving in Koh Phi Phi and the Great Barrier Reef. I was spoiled with the underwater world early!
PADI can’t find my certification, which is fine as I would like to learn scuba fully now. I am thinking of doing my Open Water with Akumal Dive Shop, which a five star IDC centre. However, I am wondering if I should just stick to snorkelling and do my Open Water at a later date in Cozumel, Playa, Cancun or even Los Cabos? Akumal’s reef is so shallow and turtles surface, so snorkelling sounds great!
On the other hand, I have two weeks at a resort, which is a first for me. Diving is really accessible from ABBWR.
Your thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
