Rivera Maya 2021
There are many more activities to enjoy when visiting Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Akumal and Tulum than breathtaking beaches and frolicking under the sun. The Caribbean coastline of Quintana Roo is also where you'll find some of the world's most interesting dive sites for both novice and SCUBA experts. Locogringo's own origin story dates back to the pioneer days of cave diving among the first to explore the Yucatan Peninsula's underground caverns.
Just like the sandy bottom beaches they love, every year dive shops, instructors, and masters shift around the coast in response to the ever-growing demand for underwater adventures. This year's selection features 5 dive outfits known throughout the coast for offering unique experiences each in a class of their own.
