Divers of all experience levels know – it’s hard to beat the scuba in Mexico. The coastline of Mexico is an almost endless array of spectacles beneath the waves. You can see everything from colorful coral reefs to unique marine life. For beginners, there are several easy to access reefs in the calm waters of the Pacific near Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Isla Mujeres.
