THE SECOND LARGEST REEF IN THE WORLD LIES IN FRONT OF MEXICO
The reef in front of Playa del Carmen is part of the Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest reef in the world. The reef is spread over a length of almost 1,000 kilometers, having its starting point in Contoy Island near Cancun and ending in the islands of the Bay, in the country from Honduras.
It has an extensive biodiversity, thus forming a large habitat for an innumerable number of marine species. In total, this reef inhabits more than 500 different species of fish and more than 60 wonderful species of stony corals.
