The Mexican Caribbean

More than 74 miles of coast and sea, offering the best weather for the development of great vegetation, give life to four of the best artificial reefs in the country: Manchones Reef, Punta Nizuc, Banderas, and Toribio Reef.
Its vibrant and colorful beauty, along with the underwater life, allows the Caribbean to be a great place for tourists that seek adventure under the sea.
The Gulf of Mexico
One of the oldest regions for diving in the country, the Veracruz reef system has 17 coral reefs distributed around the state.
In this site, you will find more than 350 sunken ships that are now home for thousands of fish species and reefs, making this place a paradise for divers. The best season for scuba diving is between the start of spring and the end of summer. Visibility and water temperature will make this experience unique.
The Pacific Ocean
The Mexican Pacific has exceptional destinations for foreign and Mexican divers. Besides the Pacific, the Sea of Cortes is also closeby to Baja California, Baja California Sur, and Sonora. which gives us a full experience for those seeking adventure.
Baja California now has the first underwater park in the area: Parque Submarino Rosarito. In here, you will be able to do all types of diving, and see the first artificial reef in the Pacific. This project started with the sinkage of the Uribe 121, a Mexican battleship, and will have three more ships sunk in the future. The park also has an underwater art gallery and a space dedicated to the blockbuster Titanic, which was filmed nearby.
