Puerto Rico: Scuba Diving
Gatekeeper of the Caribbean Sea
Puerto Rico is home to some of the most magnificent beaches in the world, with excellent diving sites. There are countless diving sites around the Island. The most exciting dives are made near Desecheo Island off Rincón, off Mona Island, 50 miles west of Mayaguez, and off Culebra and Vieques. Fajardo in eastern Puerto Rico offers divers the opportunity to explore reefs, caverns, mini walls, and channels near a string of palm-tufted islets. The reefs are decked in an array of corals ranging from delicate gorgonians to immense coral heads.
