Buddies, pals, mates, hombres, amigos ….. you know who they are and it doesn’t matter what you call them or how long you’ve known them.  What does matter is that while jobs, girlfriends, significant others and let’s face it, even wives come and go these days, they’re the ones that are there to celebrate the good times with you and see you through the bad.  Isn’t it time you all got away together for a little male bonding time …. not just a vacation but a MANcation!

The concept of a gender specific trip has been around since the first caveman took his club and went hunting with the other men in the tribe, but these days it’s called a MANcation and the only clubs are those used on the golf course.

There’s something about getting the hell out of Dodge and hitting the road with some of your boys. No girlfriend or wife to look over your shoulder or yell at you.  Just jumping in the car and going to the lake isn’t always going to cut it though, you need a Mancation packed with excitement and adrenaline (tempered by some serious chill-out time of course).  Something out of the ordinary, something that you will all remember for a lifetime.

How about a weekend packed with adrenaline and adventure for you and your crew in Playa Del Carmen on the beautiful Mexican Caribbean - just a short 45 minute drive from Cancun, but a world away from the everyday.  

Fantasea Dive & Adventure has put together a DIVE AND DRIVE Mancation weekend as an example of the kind of package we can arrange:

  • Dive on the world’s second largest reef system surrounded by spectacular marine life including giant turtles, barracuda, eels, grouper (amongst the many species of fish) and if you really want an adrenaline rush we can take you diving with bull sharks or in one of the many cenote’s in the area, freshwater swimming holes that are a part of a system of underground rivers and caves.
  • Drive your own ATV through the jungle stopping to swim or snorkel in the freshwater cenote’s, jump on a zipline or explore subterranean caves.
  • Drive a golf ball down the fairways of the one of the best golf courses in Mexico after enjoying lunch in their Clubhouse.

After an action-packed day you can relax by the pool or on Playa Del Carmen’s beautiful beaches, hit the bars, beach clubs and nightclubs on 5th Avenue, dive into some great local Mexican food and beer.


Got an extra day or two? Diving not your thing? Not a fan of golf? Rather ride a waverunner than an ATV? 

There is no shortage of things to do around Playa Del Carmen, other options include:

  • Diving in Cozumel, a protected national marine park a 45 minute ferry ride from Playa Del Carmen
  • Snorkeling instead of or in addition to scuba diving
  • Sport fishing trips, full or half day – catch Marlin, Tuna
  • Whale shark snorkeling trip (offered seasonally from May – September)
  • Kiteboarding, available seasonally (and dependent upon conditions)
  • Waverunner rental to check out the action up and down the beach
  • Ecotour trip to Tulum or Coba to snorkel, dive or explore the Mayan ruins

In addition to these activities we can also organize things like a top-shelf tequila tasting at a beachfront bar, which you can enjoy while cigars are hand-rolled to your specifications right in front of you.

  • Airport transfers to and from Cancun International Airport
  • Transfers to and from all other activities
