How Scuba Diving Can Make You Feel Great


At Divi Resorts, we love diving. It’s one of the few sports that can be relaxing, invigorating, and educational at the same time. And, here in the Caribbean, you’re never far from the next amazing dive site. Our clear waters and vibrant underwater life make sure of that.

The dive organization PADI recently published a blog post about the mood-boosting benefits of scuba diving. If you’re having a bad day—or a bad couple of months—scuba diving is a great way to relax, recharge, and reset. Immersed in a new underwater world, surrounded by fascinating marine life, your everyday worries can seem very far away.

That’s just one of the ways scuba diving can enhance your life. PADI’s blog post also mentions the connections you can form with other diving enthusiasts, the challenge of earning certifications, and the rewarding feeling of participating in marine cleanups. Diving can even promote physical health and lifelong learning, PADI asserts.

All our islands offer great diving opportunities, but the best vacation spot for anyone looking to “dive in” to the sport is Bonaire. The small Caribbean island is known for its world-class, yet easily accessible diving. Divi Dive Bonaire at Divi Flamingo Beach Resort teaches certification courses for all levels, and provides a wide variety of boat diving, shore diving, and truck diving packages. Shore diving is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Can you imagine recharging after the holidays with some firsthand oceanic exploration? You’d get a taste of our quiet, unspoiled Caribbean life on Bonaire—above and below the sea. You might even feel great.

Vacation time certainly has its benefits – new adventures, exciting experiences and an opportunity to unwind are always on the list of top reasons to plan your next getaway. But sometimes, it can be hard to keep up with your wellness goals while you’re away from home. Vacation time is typically focused more on rest and relaxation than health and fitness, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay active in fun and creative ways during your trip.

Let’s explore some of our favorite ways to find time for fitness while you’re on your Divi Resorts vacation:

Take a walk

The islands that are home to our Divi Resorts offer a lot to explore, so plan to spend some time sightseeing on foot during your trip. Many of our resorts offer guided group walks of the beaches and nature trails, and there are also plenty of walkable areas around town. There is so much to see and experience on each island, so pack your walking shoes and get ready to discover new places!

Make a splash

A fun way to get active on your Caribbean vacation is to take advantage of the islands’ most popular amenity – the ocean that is just steps away from our resorts! Our Divi Resorts destinations offer a variety of ocean activities, from snorkeling, to paddle boarding, to jet skiing. Several of our resorts offer water sports centers so that you can easily rent your equipment and head out to the ocean, and our resorts on Bonaire and St. Croix also offer PADI 5-Star Dive centers for exciting scuba adventures.

Explore the activities

There is never a shortage of activities available at Divi Resorts, and many of the daily activities are focused around fitness. From Caribbean dance classes to water aerobics, there are always plenty of ways to keep moving. You can also get adventurous with your fitness routine, trying out something new like the rock climbing wall on Aruba or a guided trail hike on Barbados.

Play around

It’s easy to keep up with your health and wellness goals when you find ways to make fitness fun! A great way to bring more fun to your daily physical activity is to invite friends or family to participate with you, and at Divi Resorts, there are a ton of games to get everyone moving. Challenge someone to a game of tennis, volleyball, golf, bocce ball or horseshoe; you’ll be so entertained, you may forget that you’re getting a workout.

Eat smart

Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you have to give up on your goal to eat better. Dining at Divi Resorts’ restaurants is a delicious way to keep up with healthy eating habits while you’re on your trip! Our chefs have introduced healthy versions of old favorites, like Spinach and Artichoke Dip made with Greek yogurt, so that you can satisfy your appetite without over-indulging on calories. The restaurants are also offering new farm-to-table and dock-to-dish specialties, deliciously flavorful salads and nutritious side options to complement your healthy meal.

Keeping up with your New Year’s resolution for improved health and wellness can be easy and fun when you vacation at Divi Resorts!
