Scuba Diving In Akumal the Sea of Cortez, Mexico

"In 2005, hundreds of islands in Mexico's Sea of Cortez were declared World Heritage Fund sites by United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. They are home to major whale breeding grounds, and the designation opens up the ability for Mexico to seek funding from the international responsibility to help preseve the area",- says www.puerto-penasco.com.

Sea of Cortez is a habitat for whales, dolphins, sea lions and many other sea life species, therefore it is a popular destination for marine life watching, and, of course, for scuba diving, too.
