Diving with Bull Sharks in Quintana Roo

The Mexican Caribbean offers many different ways to connect with nature. One way is to go scuba diving, for instance, diving with bull sharks.

Mexico is one of the best places in the world to dive with sharks and attracts certified divers from all over the world. They visit Baja California to dive with white sharks and Playa del Carmen to dive with bull sharks. It can be scary, but if divers follow the guide’s instructions, it is a very safe activity.

Bull sharks arrive in the Mexican Caribbean during the month of November, stay for the winter months and return to the north in March. This magnificent species can swim in salt or fresh water, which makes this area very attractive for them, since the fresh water from cenotes seeps into the sea along the coast. Divers can see pregnant females that come to give birth their young during the season.

This experience offers the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with bull sharks, and although they are predators, they are harmless to humans, as long as the guide’s instructions are followed.

This is an excellent option for those who visit Playa del Carmen in the winter or spring. There are a variety of dive shops with expert diving with bull sharks guides.
