Over 500 underwater life-size statues, whale sharks, and so much more – Isla Mujeres, Mexico has a lot to share with everyone from the experienced adventurer to the first-time diver. Located a short ferry ride from Cancun, Isla Mujeres is a quaint island of only 7 km from its northern tip to the first Mexican soil to be warmed by the sunrise each morning at its Punta Sur. Though the island is small, the vastness of experience awaiting to be explored is astounding and one of the best diving spots in Mexico!

Cave Diving and Cave Courses in Mexico

A scuba diving experience like no other can be experienced in the cenotes located in Yucatan, Mexico. A magical play of sun rays in crystal clear water, ancient rock formations and dead trees compose the underwater world here.

Most scuba divers will do some cenote dives in Mexico and might not even wonder what follows after the huge stop sign they encountered during their dive. The adventurous ones among us who do wonder what comes next will jump at the chance to take their cave course.


The caves in Mexico are possibly the best place in the world to take a cave diving course. So let's take a look at exactly why. #GirlsthatCaveDive

The Best Liveaboard Trips in Mexico

best mexico liveaboards

Do you want to go on one of the best liveaboard trips of your life? Look no further than Mexico; schooling hammerheads, great whites, whale sharks, tiger sharks, Galapagos sharks, silkies, manta rays, pods of dolphins, humpback whales, grey whales, blue whales and so so much more. This is what you can expect to see on a liveaboard in Mexico. 


Mexico is just a short flight away from most North American states and a worthwhile long-haul from Europe. Jacques Cousteau was known to call Mexico the ‘Aquarium of the World’ so I guess it's time we found out why. We've spent months diving in Mexcio to give you the best information on liveaboards there. Let's dive in.


But before you do anything sign up to our GTS discount membership and get 5% off 12 different liveaboards in Mexico!!

Night diving with crocodiles in Mexico

Night diving with crocs, would you? Photo by Drenched Divers

Night diving; dark, cold  and full of the unexpected. But that's why we love it! However when you add CROCODILES to the mix things start to get interesting! Mexico has been full of critters and creatures for us, and we recently went swimming with saltwater crocodiles in Banco Chinchorro, so it's not like we are afraid to get in the water with crocodiles (as mad as that sounds).


So when Koox Diving challenged us to a new kind of croc diving in Tulum, Mexico, you better believe we jumped right in!

Is it safe to go diving with crocodiles?
