Cenote diving Mexico

My cenote diving experience in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

What took me to Mexico was the promise of incredible underwater adventures. If you research the quirkiest dives in the world, you will quickly hear about the Cenotes, the Mayan springs, famous for offering some of the most incredible cavern and cave diving in the world. Mexico is also famous for ocean dives in Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Cancun on the Carribean Coast,

A foretaste of Antarctica in Ushuaia, Argentina

I have many scuba diving books at home, but few of them deal with what I’m looking for… inspirational places with unique scuba diving experience.

Of all the places I’ve dived in, only one so far offered the possibility of gathering a vibrant city life with scuba diving adventures.

Travelling with your own scuba gear? Yes you can!

For most travellers, the goal is to travel as light as possible to avoid hassles and tiredness. Of course, it depends on the kind of travels you’re into. Addict to all-inclusive resort holidays? Filling 2 or 3 suitcases is not an issue. If your thing is to go on an adventure and immerse yourself in the country you’re visiting then it is a bit more complicated and luggage optimisation is

Dive anywhere : It’s not because it’s not far that it’s not exciting!

Scuba divers I meet during my trips to exotic countries usually ask me the same questions: “How many dives do you do a year?”, “Do you dive back home?”, “Often?” And the most popular ones: “What can you see?”, “Is it interesting?” These persons are always very surprised to know I dive in France, in Switzerland, in Belgium, even diving in Spain is surprising for some
