Best diving in Americas & the Caribbean

From the USA to Argentina, the American continent offered me some of my most intense experiences such as scuba diving in the Great Blue Hole in Belize, the cenotes in Mexico, the crater of a volcano in Hawaii, with whale sharks in Honduras and with sea lions in Argentina. While the Caribbean Islands attract most of the attention of the holidaymakers, the colder waters are full of bucket list dives as well.
