The Ko’ox Familia Dream – About Koox Adventures

Koox Diving team in action

The word Ko’ox means “Let’s Go” in Mayan. It’s the magical enthusiasm to “Go” dive, kite, swim, get out of your comfort zone, and explore the beauty of the world around you without second-guessing yourself. To discover and experience nature and its abundant wonders we need to get off the beaten path. What are you waiting for? Ko’ox!

Jesus Guzman Diaz – Chucho – Owner of Koox Adventures

Jesus Guzman cenote angelita-tulum

Jesus started his diving career in 1999 becoming an open water instructor in 2005.

He spent a few years freelancing sometimes in the Caribbean and sometimes in the sea of Cortez and around the Revillagigedo Islands.

In 2010 with a baby on the way and very bad work conditions for freelancers, Chucho, as people know him, decided to open Koox Adventures. Now he teaches recreational and technical diving and if the conditions are good for surfing he would ride a wave or two…

The Koox Adventures Story

The Ko’ox dream started in the Hotel area of Tulum with a little wooden cabin, 4 dive equipment sets, an old truck and lots of hope. It took a lot of work and support from friends and in 2011 the “KOOX Family” found its new house downtown Tulum. Where it continues receiving divers from all over the world with the only desire to explore the wonders that the Mexican Caribbean has to offer.

In April 2019 the dream expanded to Playa del Carmen, a couple of friends who share the passion and love of nature and diving, adding more experiences and more diving spots for you to enjoy.

Nowadays “Koox Adventures” is a big family aspiring to cover the whole of Riviera Maya & Mexico. It is not a regular “resort dive shop” but a family – giving clients the warmth that only a family can give. Our local guides also work in close communication with the local Mayan communities, supporting and helping them to thrive in a sustainable way and preserve nature, protect our future.

Join us on any of our adventures, let us show you our magical enthusiasm, connect with the locals and discover the best-kept secrets and the most genuine side that Mexico has to offer. What are you waiting for? Ko’ox!
