GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE MESOAMERICAN CORAL BARRIER REEF

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE MESOAMERICAN CORAL BARRIER REEF

The Mesoamerican Reef - Tulum Mexico

The Mesoamerican Reef

Tulum is part of the Mesoamerican Reef System, which extends over about 1000 km along the Caribbean coasts of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras. It is the largest coral reef in the western hemisphere and the second-largest in the world, after the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.

With more than 65 species of rock corals, 350 species of molluscs, and over 500 fish species, the Mesoamerican Reef is a natural refuge for protected and endangered species. And certanly a great place to put the mask and immerse in the treasures that its water have to explore.

Dazzling arrays of different types of coral form this underwater wilderness, and provide homes and food to hundreds of fish species, marine turtles, and sharks. Along the shores, mangroves provide habitat for fish and shorebirds as well as protect coastal areas from the damage associated with hurricanes and strong storms.

 

In Agua Clara, we feel extremly fortunate of having so many amazing reefs around us.

You can dive with us in:

It is logical to consider that visiting these places represents a great privilege that, in addition to enjoying, we should treasure and maintain.

We believe that the first step toward generating environmental awareness and protect these natural areas is to experience nature in its original state by engaging in eco tourism activities with minimal impact and providing information about the delicate balance that sustains it.

The tours offered by us are designed to convey the consequences of a natural act over another, to understand the ecosystem in question as a whole.

Cozumel island is a diving hotspot for a number of reasons:

  • Its one of the most biodiverse reefs in the area, having its own endemic species unique to this island.
  • Seating right on the Channel of Yucatan you can find huge walls packed wiht corals and life going form shallow dephts as little as (25 mts) to the abysm of the sea.
  • The inner part of the island is highly protected form open sea which results in very clear waters with little or non sand removal.
  • Cozumel represents a successful story of conservation. A national park that hasn’t been fished for more than 30 years. This can be highly noticed in the amount of different species and their sizes. Created in 1996, the park is home to some 26 types of corals with more than 100 subspecies. More than 500 fish species live in the park, including the endemic splendid toadfish. Due to marine life protection programs, divers can also often see loggerhead, hawksbill and green turtles. From shallow sheltered shore dives to secluded, seldom visited, current-swept drift dives, there’s a dive in Cozumel for everyone.

Diving the walls of Cozumel is an incredible experience similar to watching a slide show of life due the  current through the wall. There are several dive sites such as Santa Rosa, Palancar, Paraíso, Punta Sur and many more.

In the language of the Mayan peoples who once inhabited this region, Sian Ka’an means ‘Origin of the Sky’. Located on the east coast of the Yucatán peninsula, this biosphere reserve contains tropical forests, mangroves and marshes, as well as a large marine section intersected by a barrier reef. It provides a habitat for a remarkably rich flora and a fauna comprising more than 300 species of birds, as well as a large number of the region’s characteristic terrestrial vertebrates, which cohabit in the diverse environment formed by its complex hydrological system. It is also home to the Crocodylus acutus / American Crocodile and
Crocodylus moreletii / Morelet’s Crocodile, both on the IUCN Redlist, and they are both found in the lagoons and mangrove around the property. Check it out…..

Flying through cenote The pit

cenote diving with agua clara

Cenote the Pit its located about 20 km north of Tulum town. Its a deep sinkwhole of more than a 100 mts (300 feet) deep. The clarity of the water allows sun beams to go as far as 35 mts without being refracted.
Floating through it gives a strong sensation of floating in space or lacking gravity for a while.
The stalactites hanging from it are the celarest evidence of its dryer stages, down to even 70 mtes less than its current stage.
