Puerto Aventuras is an upscale residential community resort located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera. It is known primarily for its marina, which is the only one to be found along the Riviera. Puerto Aventuras is also the center of sport fishing for Mexico's Caribbean coast.

It is centrally located, has an international selection of restaurants and is safe - with a 24-hour security patrol. All the restaurants use bottled water and purified ice. Activities include golf, tennis, and diving and there are a few small shops selling local crafts, a pharmacy and two small grocery stores.
Fatima Bay is the main beach area with over 1.5 miles of beachfront beginning at Chac Hal and ending at the Grand Peninsula [hotels].

Puerto Aventuras has highly trained and experienced staff of multi-lingual instructors, divemasters and guides as well as state-of-the-art equipment and custom dive boats that ensure you a safe and action-filled diving experience.
Divers may plan and decide their own adventure. The reef is only a hundred yards from the beach. The reef's first platform is only 60' deep and will offer all you'll want to see. For the more demanding diver a second platform goes 120' and from there a cliff where the most daring diver will not reach bottom.
