What are the best destinations for freediving?
One of the biggest challenges of being a bodyboarder in the Caribbean is that we don't always have waves. Who practices this sport depends on the wind, rain, luck, hurricane season, and almost on the alignment of the stars...
That's why, since I started competing seven years ago, I had no choice but to take a dip into the pool to, at least, get good training for the Pacific waves –the name of that non-tranquil ocean is a complete irony...-. And so, little by little, my adventurous and competitive spirit led me to participate in Open Water competitions and to enter the world of freediving.
Freediving is an extreme sport that consists of holding your breath while you try to reach the maximum depth or the maximum distance possible. The Mexican Caribbean is perfect for practicing it because it has countless cenotes throughout the Yucatan Peninsula, and the visibility of the Caribbean Sea is incredible.
But this is not the only NexusTours destination ideal for freediving; from the Baja California peninsula to Costa Rica, including most of the Caribbean islands, this area is full of underwater scenarios that will leave you breathless. Let's discover them!
