Diving in Mexico

Mexico, a country with breathtaking landscapes, is surrounded by the world’s two largest oceans, the Pacific and the Atlantic, which makes it a perfect country for diving. Mexico is also known for its rich culture and some of the world’s most delicious food. You will also find beautiful beaches, friendly people, tequila, mariachi bands and a lot of celebrations such as “Día de Muertos”. The Mayan and Aztec ruins are some of the places that you must explore during your visit to Mexico, along with amazing diving spots.

Diving in Mexico is a breathtaking, world-class experience. This country offers many adventures and a landscape full of natural wonders. Go cage diving with white sharks on Guadalupe Island or admire sea lions, humpback whales and whale sharks on the Sea of Cortez, the choice is yours. Home to the world’s second largest barrier reef, which is located on the east coast, Mexico is one of the most important diving destinations in the world. Diving in the mystical fresh water of the “cenotes” that can be found in the Yucatan Peninsula, is submerging yourself in history, natural architecture and wonderful adventures.
