Mexico is one of the most visited countries in the world. With its warm climate, sandy beaches, mystical Mayan ruins and authentic Mexican cuisine, millions of tourists flock here each year to escape the coldest months of winter. While places like Cancun, Tulum, and Playa del Carmen are geared towards families and couples looking to relax along the beachfront in the safety of an all-inclusive resort, the small island of Cozumel boasts of being the safest part of Mexico and caters heavily towards divers.
Bonaire is famous for being the best place in the world for shore diving. And it boasts of being home to one of the healthiest coral reefs in the Caribbean. Its reef encircles all 294 square kilometres of this tiny island making many of the dive sites easily accessible right from shore. There are 86 official dive sites, most of which are clustered around the western part of the island that is often sheltered from strong winds and rough currents. There's a reason why this tiny island is often referred to as diver's paradise.
