The Mexican Riviera, Akumal

Scuba diving is about experiences and memories. If you want both in abundance, head to these warm, clear waters and swim in cenotes or along colorful reefs (as long as you don't damage them) with more than 500 species of brightly colored fish and turtles.

$550: Seven nights at the Vista del Mar Condominiums & Hotel -- Akumal, Mexico.
$65: Rent a BCD (buoyancy control device) and regulator, assuming you brought much of your own equipment --
$300: Two dives per day for six days (Stop diving 12 to 24 hours before your flight home to avoid decompression sickness, which can cause joint pain and be life-threatening.)

Running Tally: $3,656
