Cabo San Lucas
Playa Del Carmen
|Mexico offers a wealth of diverse
diving opportunities, on the Carribean, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and the Sea of Cortez. Several Mexican sites rate in the top 20 places to dive on the planet, so seriously give Mexico some thought
for dive trips. These pages highlight those dive sites in Baja California and the Cancun area (including Cozumel). The sites I've visited have a wealth of sea-life. Cozumel seemed
a bit over-fished for large shoals, though we did see some big stuff: stingrays, Potato Cod & the largest lobster I've ever seen! This Cancun Travel Guide can help you plan your Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean vacation with traveler's basics, how to get there,
how to get around once you're there, where to stay, and what to see and do.
Each area has something unique: the "sand falls" & pinnacles of Cabo San Lucas; sealions in Cabo and La Paz. One of the great things about the Cancun area
is the wide diversity of high quality dives within easy reach. Any one of the areas: Cancun, Cozumel & Cenotes
stands alone as a great dive destination with great wall dives, healthy reefs & over 100 ft visibility. Combined, they make for a diverse diving experience all within easy access. The Cenote caverns near Cancun are outstanding, even for new divers.
If you don't look at anything else, I strongly recommend checking out the short video of the Cenotes I edited down from original footage shot by professional videographer Edgar Garcia Gonzales & shown here with his permission.
The towns & surface facilities are just as diverse: from the modern Cancun / Playa Del Carmen area, rebuilt following Hurricane Wilma in 2005, to the sleepy little town of Cabo Pulmo & of course that well-known "Party Central":
Cabo San Lucas.
