SCUBA DIVING FOR CERTIFIED DIVERS

SCUBA DIVING FOR CERTIFIED DIVERS

For visitors who dream of floating weightlessly in the water, scuba diving opportunities abound. The Mexican Caribbean is replete with marine life and ecological formations, and the clear, fresh waters welcome guests’ daily explorations. Drift dives are common; most sites have a steady, northerly current that carries divers gently past the reef, so that it is easy to relax as the scenery moves by. As the region is blessed with good visibility and comfortable temperatures (averaging about 26 C/78F), even inexperienced divers can get acclimated quickly, and advanced divers will find it easy to probe the ocean’s depths.
