Cave Diving in Mexico
Cave Diving is when divers visit water-filled caves with so-called overhead environment. This type of diving is considered to be the most difficult, because there is no way for a diver to ascend in case of emergency. As a matter of fact, if the diver doesn’t follow certain procedures and rules he can simply get lost in the maze of caves. That’s why there are very tough requirements when it comes to diving skills and psychological training. And of course, divers should pay extra attention to their equipment to make sure it’s safe and reliable.
Even though, there’s risk involved, cave diving is a very fascinating and interesting type of dives. Where else can you find such colorful underwater landscape? Mother Nature has made it all beautiful and unreachable for recreational divers. Since caves have no natural light, you have to use bright flashlight to catch these subtle forms of stalactites, stalagmites and stalagnates, tunnels, halls and so much more.
There are many different types of caves such as karst, lava, icebergs, sea and coral. The longest and deepest ones are karst caves. Lava caves are formed as a result of the gas passing through the cooling down volcanic lava flows. Lime and gypsum caves - extremely beautiful. Ice caves in the icebergs are formed by melting of ice at the bottom edge of the iceberg. They are the most dangerous and unpredictable ones. Luckily for us Mexico has all these types of caves anywhere you go. Yet, underwater caves are still explored by very little percent of divers and waiting for many new ones to discover them.
