It's your last chance to vote in DIVE's Destinations of the Year - our poll closes on 31 December. With nearly 50,000 votes cast, Indonesia it out in front with 22,504 votes.

In the past few weeks, Mexico has been climbing steadily up the rankings and sits at fourth place with 2,026 votes behind Papua New Guinea (2nd with 6,098) and the Philippines (3rd with 3,266).

And for the first time, Palau has made it into the Top 10 with 977 votes (10th), the Bahamas is in 9th position, Thailand 8th, the Red Sea 7th, Australia 6th and the Maldives 5th.

However, there is a cluster of destinations just outside the Top 10 all with votes over 900 so positions may change by the end of the year. To see the latest position, or to vote if you haven't already, see below.
