The Omni Hotel and Beach Resort (Karen Doody)

Dive Aventuras are based at the Omni Hotel and Beach Resort in Puerto Aventuras about an hour south of Cancun. They are very well placed to take you exploring to some of the most fascinating cenotes of the Riviera Maya. The modern and efficient dive centre is a PADI 5 star Gold Palm operation, run by enthusiastic American couple Mike and Karen Doody. A talented photographer herself, Karen Doody ensures the photographic facilities at Dive Aventuras are second to none. There are multiple camera rinse stations as well as tables and work areas for image review or general camera tinkering. The staff and guides are very adept at handling the most complex of set-ups. The dive shop has free wifi.

To dive the most popular cenotes you need nothing more than an Open Water certification. Lines are laid for guidance even in places where the surface is visible. If you wish to make penetrations into overhead environments you will need to have the appropriate training and certification. Dive Aventuras provide lights for every diver and will always have a guide on hand who has immense knowledge and experience of the cenotes. A maximum of four divers follow each guide.

Each day with Dive Aventuras is different but a typical day may begin at 0830 with a short drive into the jungle to your destination cenote. A thorough briefing and orientation is given to divers before entering the water. Depending on your location, a second dive may be done or you may venture to a different cenote for a second dive. Bottom times are roughly 45 minutes with depths normally around 12 meters. Water and snacks are provided. A similar procedure is followed for afternoon dives.

The Omni Hotel and Beach Resort has just 30 rooms, each with its own private Jacuzzi and patio or balcony. The hotel enjoys a delightful location on the beach which makes for great access to a nearby reef for some snorkelling. Rooms are very spacious and tastefully and colourfully appointed. All rooms are air conditioned and have ensuite bathroom facilities, coffee making facilities, a minibar and a safe. There are dining facilities at the hotel but you may also wish to explore the small but lively town in search of some more traditional fare. There are several reasonably priced restaurants around the marina, all no more than a five minute walk away. The Omni boasts two swimming pools, a fitness centre, tennis club access and access to a nine hole golf course.
