Recent researches have shown that diving helps divers derive happiness and long-term satisfaction. Improving your skills and virtues in an activity you like can help boost your well-being. Diving can improve your sense of well-being as it enables you to learn more about yourself, other people and the underwater environment around you. There are  Five Major Benefits of Diving:

1- Increase the Knowledge of the Sea

Diving offers many opportunities for divers to increase their knowledge of the sea. This knowledge starts with learning how to dive and continues with improving diving skills after the initial qualification. Also, diving enables divers to know a lot about underwater. This knowledge can help a diver know how to be comfortable under the sea. Diving also helps a diver to know about the unique and marvelous marine life he comes across.

2- Diving Gives A Diver the Opportunity to Travel

Traveling is a good way to increase knowledge and skills through cultural emersion and new experiences. Traveling also results in positive experiences. According to research, positive experiences helps a person get “the good life”.

3- Divers are More Likely to Protect the Environment

People who like diving are more likely to be environmentally aware and undertake pro-environmental behaviors. Apart from protecting the underwater world, divers also protect the environment they live in as they know the importance of caring for the natural environment.

4- Promotes Personal Growth

Diving promotes personal growth as divers share experiences with other divers, bond with fellow divers and what academics refer to as “serious leisure” (leisure activities that promote self-expression, self-enrichment, self-actualization, rediscovering or recreating yourself, creating social connections and a feeling of belonging).

To participate in these activities, a person needs special knowledge, skills, and proper training. People who participate in serious-leisure activities can reach a point where the activity they participate in becomes a central point of their lives and they may start strongly identifying with the activity. I am sure that most of us consider the diving possibility when choosing a travel destination.

5- Creating a Community

As a diver, the friendships you create with your fellow divers will help you grow. Diving helps divers create shared experiences, learn from one another and get out of their comfort zone. Diving together also helps divers grow as families. Research has proven that positive experiences such as socializing and learning are so great that they outweigh negative experiences like poor visibility and bad weather conditions.

Oct - 2019


While on vacation in Mexico, many people think that in order to participate in activities such as scuba diving, you must be an experienced diver in order to scuba dive. This is simply not the case. It is advised that you have some basic knowledge of diving and also be a strong and somewhat experienced swimmer. What is intriguing about scuba diving in Mexico is that you do not have to be an experienced diver. In Mexico, there are many people who go diving for the very first time.


The general idea of scuba diving in most areas is the same. However, with scuba diving in Mexico, what you will see underwater can be quite different and alluring by the prevalence of underwater animals and plants that can only be seen in the Mexico area. Below is a list of the top 3 reasons why you should consider your first underwater adventure in Mexico:


(1) The Yucatan Peninsula: ‘Cenote Dive’

A ‘cenote’ is vast system of underground rivers, pools, and caverns. Many of these ‘cenotes’ can be found in Tulum in the Yucatan Peninsula. With an experienced guide, these ‘cenotes’ are open for swimming and cave diving. The Yucatan Peninsula is world renowned for its network of underground caverns. Diving in a ‘cenote’ is unlike cave diving and requires no certification beyond OpenWater. The reasoning that no certification is required is because you are never more than 30 feet (50 meters) from an opening. Imagine diving into a lagoon, with sunlight and trees sparkling through the clear blue water. These ‘cenote’ dives also offer snorkeling as well. These ‘cenotes’ make scuba diving in Mexico the ideal place to enjoy your first scuba experience.


(2) Los Cabos, Cabo San Lucas, Cabo Pulmo, The East Cape and La Paz Baja California Sur, Mexico


The diversity in fish and marine mammals that congregate in this area of Mexico in unmatched anywhere is the Earth’s undersea domain. In this region, scuba diving in Mexico is unparalleled to any part of the world. Three major ocean currents collide here to create a very unique and varied sea life that is present in these fruitful waters. The California current, Panamic current, and the North equatorial countercurrent all interact together and bring an abundant population of plankton. This staple of marine life attracts the whole sea life food chain. This presence of marine life has caused the Sea of Cortez to be labeled the “World’s Richest Sea”. This is especially true for the waters that caress the southern tip of Baja.


(3) Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Scuba diving in Mexico can also be a great adventure in the Puerto Vallarta region along the Pacific Ocean. Puerto Vallarta scuba diving is a rare treat as many of the nearby islands and bays, such as Los Arcos, Majahuitas. There is also the Marietas islands, which have been designated as protected underwater national parks. Between the months of December and April, scuba diving in Mexico in the waters of Puerto Vallarta will likely offer views of humpback whales, as mammals migrate to warm seas off the coast each winter. Whale sharks, dolphins, sea turtles, and a variety of tropical fish also make this safe haven their home. Puerto Vallarta scuba diving has become one of the hottest scuba diving locations in Mexico.
