Mexico offers divers a number of vastly different experiences from east to west. You can dive the Yucatán Peninsula with its famous Mesoamerican Barrier Reef just offshore in the Caribbean Sea and move inland to dive the landlocked Cenotes. On the West Coast, you have the diving of the Mexican Rivera along the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez. While the Caribbean Sea gives you dolphins, the Sea of Cortez gives you sea lions. High rise resorts in Cancun or liveaboards visiting Guadalupe island or the Socorro Islands. These are the contrasts that you will see diving Mexico.
