Cave Diving Mexico
Your cave diving vacation in Mexico can range from one to three weeks and we will not run out of caves. Mexico has some of the world’s best cave diving. The warm water, clear visibility, shallow depths, low flow of water and year round consistent cave diving conditions make it an ideal cave diving location. The caves in Mexico have an abundance of Stalactites, Stalagmites, Columns, many different cave formations and cave passages that make Mexico an excellent cave diving experience.

Average cave diving depths in Mexico are between 40 feet / 12 meters and 60 feet / 18 meters. The water temperature stays constant at 75 F / 24 C during the year. The Sidemount Configuration provides the advantage of the Single Cylinders that are safer and easier to move and the ability to attach heavy equipment in the water. Regardless of the configuration Sidemount or Backmount the cave dives are planned within the limits of normal cave diving. For more advanced cave dives a Cave Stage or DPV Certification is necessary.
