Cancun Destination Update: Underwater Bar

Clear Lounge on Cozumel Island near Cancun is the world’s very first underwater oxygen bar, and it is making a name for itself very quickly, having been featured by media outlets like ABC news,, NBC, and USA Today. This multi-sensory experience is said to feel like a trip into another, more magical, dimension. To find your way here from Cancun you must first arrive to Cozumel Island by taking one of the regular ferries from Playa del Carmen, just over an hour’s drive from Villa del Palmar Cancun.

Underwater Fun

Participants curious enough to take the underwater challenge are aided by patented technology and enter an underwater lounge while breathing enhanced oxygen flavored to your preference; the high-tech sea TREK helmets keep the body dry from the shoulders upwards, and constantly supply cool, invigorating air laced with aromatherapy (participants get to choose the fragrance). Each session, including the instructional period, lasts around 30 minutes, and the really great thing is that no diving experience is needed whatsoever.

One-of-a-kind Experience

This is a one-of-a-kind experience that is, above all other things, really good fun! Once you descend into the comfortable climatized water with your helmet on you can get down to the serious business of enjoying yourself in this underwater lounge! The combination of the sensation of weightlessness and the invigoratingly scented oxygen which fills the helmets is unique, and will stimulate your senses. Better yet there are plenty of activities to take part in which will make your time there highly memorable.

Underwater Activities

You could have a friendly game of Jenga, with a set designed for underwater use, or even improve your aim with high-powered bubble guns. You can also take the chance to be playful, poetic, or artistic, dancing in the space or writing and drawing whatever comes to mind on underwater tablets. The underwater bar also has a photobooth where you can pose with props like martini glasses, and moustaches in front of an LED digital background wall, complete with distinctive images, which runs from the floor to the surface.

Oxygen Juice Bar

Once you emerge from the lounge into the real world you can have even more oxygen fun; there is a smoothie bar on-site which serves some truly delicious fruit infusions… the twist? They’re infused with oxygen to give you a little boost after your time underwater.
