Dazzling Underwater World of Mexico
There are a lot of diving options for diving professionals and amateur who want to explore the rich marine life of Mexico. You can opt to go diving in the Pacific Ocean on the west coast, on the Caribbean Sea side, the unique cenote or sinkhole cave or at the second largest reef in the world or the Great Maya Barrier Reef. Some of the more popular places to dive in Mexico are Cozumel, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. The stunning coastline reefs as well as the renowned beautifully complex underwater panorama with cliffs, canyons and underwater flora makes Cozumel a popular dive spot. The shallow and multicolored reefs of Playa del Carmen or Chinchorro Banks leading to the Great Maya Barrier Reef are ever popular in Cancun. The nearby islands and bays and sea creatures like whale sharks, dolphins, sea turtles and tropical fishes make Puerto Vallarta a very interesting and famous dive spot. Diving in Cabo San Lucas and La Paz will display an underwater feast for your eyes.
The Gray Whales of Mexico
The sight of whales frolic playing or cavorting or even just plainly swimming in the waters never fails to evoke a sense of admiration and marvel. The gray whales leave the winter waters of Northern Bering and go to the Sea of Cortez every year during fall to give birth and feast on the bountiful food in the tropical waters of the Pacific. Magdalena Bay just a little off the coast of Los Cabos is the best place to go whale watching for the mothers and their young. San Ignacio is equally as famous for whale watching but there is a higher possibility of seeing the whales in Los Cabos than any other location in Baja especially during the peak season from the end of December to the end of March. Whale watching tours make sure strict rules and guidelines are followed in order to ensure that the whales are not harmed. Include this age-old annual tradition and be a part of this Mexico vacation adventure.
