A number of excellent natural conditions allow diving for most of the year: it's hard to choose where to begin as there are dozens of places for different types of diving. Low coastal areas, magnificent caves and underwater arches, shipwrecks that shelter groupers and Imperial Serranos, deep ocean water, or, mysterious underwater fumaroles where groups of Manta swim.
