Who Says You Can't Enjoy Water Sports in Winter?

While most of the wetsuits, boats and fishing poles in North America have been put away in the garage by now, water sports are just getting warmed up on Mexico’s Riviera Maya.

The cold breezes of November mark the true start of peak season South of the Border. This winter, you will find lots of wave-based sports to keep your adrenaline rushing and your skin sun-kissed. Especially at Oasis Hotels & Resorts, where water sports are well-known for being a trip-highlight.

So which one will you choose? To help get your to-do list started, here are a few of the most popular water sports for Winter 2017:

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving

The Sian Ka’an at Grand Tulum resort is situated directly on the beach, and that means snorkeling here becomes an almost “swim-in, swim-out” experience. The resort provides guests all the equipment they need to explore the crystal clear water beyond the sand on their own as well as the opportunity to join an organizing snorkeling trip.

For those that prefer to dive a little deeper underwater, the scuba diving situation at the resort is just as solid.

The Sian Ka’an at Grand Tulum’s proximity to the Great Maya Reef ensures your underwater adventure will be filled with thrills. This barrier reef is the second largest in the world and, on its fringes, you will find hundreds of vibrant fish species alongside various corals and other assorted sea life like manatees, dolphins and turtles.

Paddleboarding has become one of the most popular water sports in the world, and the Riviera Maya is full of places to test your skills. Paddleboards can be picked up directly on the beach at many resorts, often free of charge.

Whether you stay upright and propel yourself the entire time or spend most of your day sitting on your board enjoying your surroundings, you’re guaranteed to have a great day out.


When you have a seascape that teems with as much life as the Riviera Maya’s does, the fishing is always going to be fantastic. The waters here are the home to many types of game fish, with deep sea fishing tours being easily organized from resorts in the region.

No matter the time of year, you should have a shot at catching a barracuda, kingfish or wahoo. Even if you strike out on the water, you’re sure to have a great day taking in the sights and sounds of the open sea.

Similar to the paddleboards, kayaks can be scooped up on the sand at resorts along the coast. Kayaks are perfect for exploring the some of the Riviera Maya’s most sensational stretches of natural scenery—like Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve—at your own pace.

At the Sian Ka’an at Grand Tulum, you can give your arms a workout in the waves just offshore or sign up for an organized tour.
