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, the cenotes, the crater of a volcano, with whale sharks and sea lions. While the Caribbean area attracts most of the attention, the colder waters are full of bucket list dives as well.
