Located in from of the Xcaret park is the Mama Viña – an old shrimp boat that was intentionally sunk in 1995 for divers. Since then it has developed into an artificial reef and today belongs to one of the top dive sites on the Riviera Maya.
Almost intact, it lies in approx. 21-30m depth with its bow facing the predominant south-north current head on. Covered in sponges, sea fans and black coral, it is home to moray eels, barracuda and so much more. See the huge size as you drift towards it, then explore the outside looking into its many rooms and you can also experience the thrill of swimming inside a few sections.
