Diving the world-famous cenotes in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula is one of my best ever diving experiences. It is a must!

A destination on the up thanks to an enticing blend of attractions and a new found place in the public consciousness. Whatever you are hoping for we will have a spot-on suggestion.
Why we think you’ll love it
- Some of the best big fish action on earth in the Galapagos and the Pacific generally.
- Almost guaranteed sightings of whale sharks in Belize if you are there at the right time.

Our Guide to Central & South America Diving Holidays
We can of course recommend the very best places for diving throughout Central America, from Mexico and Belize to Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands but we can do more than just that. Want breathtaking landscapes? We can advise on some that may render your jaw duly dropped, such as the pampas of Argentina or glaciers in Chile.
Wildlife nuts can travel to a secret spot that we know deep in the Pantanal wetlands in Brazil where jaguar sightings are all but guaranteed. We can arrange tailor-made adventures into the remote Amazon rainforest, or mountaineering with expert guides in the Andes and diving in the Galapagos Islands. Party animals have to visit Rio and history buffs the various - invariably spectacular - ruined cities of the great indigenous peoples, the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas.
Central America and South America have some of the best scuba diving opportunities in the world, including the second largest barrier reef in the world in Belize, and scuba diving vacations with fearless wildlife in the Galapagos Islands, to name just a couple of options. Then there is Mexico, Cocos Island, Brazil…the list could go on and on.
In short, whether just diving, or whether looking to combine diving with some culture of adventure on land, Latin America is certainly a destination worth considering.
