On the west coast of Mexico we have the Pacific Ocean coastline which is known for its beach-front villas, the Sierra Madre mountain range, sensational sunsets, gorgeous golden sand and deep blue water. Here you can find towns such as Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit and Los Cabos, honeymoon destinations well-known for their diving opportunities. The water on the Pacific Coast is stronger and tends to be a bit cooler than the east coast but take a boat ride out with the instructors and you’ll find dives that you will remember for the rest of your lives.

Although there are fewer dive spots on this side of the country, the diversity of the organisms more than makes up for it. On the west coast you can explore caves, underwater mountain ranges, and marine reserves just to name a few attractions.

No matter how many dives you go on, there is always something new to be discovered. Where else could you be surrounded by the beauty of our present day oceanic biodiversity and stand in awe of the great pyramids and sacrificial altars of the ancient Mayans? Besides, Mexico’s Caribbean is particularly romantic for a honeymoon in Mexico.

No matter which coast you choose, you are sure to have an experience that will remain with you for life.
