artificial-reefs-pros-and-cons

Before you sink into adventure, here is some information on the pros and cons of artificial reefs:

Pros: an artificial reef made out of a solid structure placed at the bottom of the ocean will have now a second life housing thousands of marine species, this is great for our planet’s biodiversity, and it also allows you to have an underwater adventure.

Cons: if the structure sunk is not properly prepared, it might generate pollution. This is why the Uribe 121 has been prepared by civil organizations along with the Mexican environmental authorities to make sure that it will not cause any type of pollution or a negative environmental impact.

Why is it that —in just a short amount of time— Rosarito has become one of the best destinations in Mexico? Well, there are many factors that favored this city: its economic growth, its tourism, its natural resources, but, overall, the adventures awaiting those who come and visit.

Parque Submarino is one of the greatest touristic destinations in the region —and in the country! A theme park where adventure meets science in the underwater world.

Swim among aquatic plants and animals. Admire the freshness of the Pacific Ocean and the life developing on sunken battleships. See history come to life.
