NileGuide Expert tip:
Diving certification courses make an excellent active vacation in Acapulco.
Longtime Acapulco scuba operator Swiss Divers Association offers novice divers and snorkelers the chance to gain experience in pool sessions or the shallow waters of Playa Caletilla and Isla Roqueta. More experienced divers visiting Mexico can choose from boat, wreck, and nitrox dives in deep Acapulco Bay or in the Pacific Ocean. Visibility varies daily but is usually from between 15 and 45 feet and sea life like octopus, turtles, stingrays, and dolphins are regularly spotted.
Boats sail in the morning and afternoon; one interesting dive visits the submerged bronze statue of the Virgin of the Seas in Boca Chica channel. The friendly staff takes your safety seriously and also speaks English, Spanish, and German. The company also rents, sells, and repairs diving equipment, and makes souvenir photos and videos of your dive. Swiss Divers Association offers free transportation to and from hotels, including Las Brisa
s and Casa Condesa
