When the underwater world comes to town

Divers explore the seas and oceans and witness the beautiful colors that illuminate our dives all over the world.

Privileged explorers of a unique and wonderful world, we are also sensitive to the beauty of the world in general.

Indeed, during our surface intervals we sometimes take the time to admire the landscapes of the countries bordering our favorite oceans ūüôā

Sometimes we are surprised to find, on the surface, the colors and emotions that remind us of our dives in the big blue.

This is the case in Playa del Carmen where street art and the underwater world meet through beautiful frescoes scattered throughout the city and allowing everyone to dream of a underwater world, rich, fantastic and colorful.

While some wall frescoes can already be seen in the vibrant heart of Playa del Carmen, others are coming to quieter places in the city and giving way to more disadvantaged neighborhoods.

To discover them during your dive stay in the Yucatan, departing from the fifth avenue called Quinta, move away from the bustling center going north-east in the district of La Colosio and its wilder beaches frequented by locals.

In recent years, street art has exploded in Mexico staging tribal drawings and / or in reference to nature. From then on, it gives new life and color to places in cities sometimes neglected by tourism.

Due to its proximity to the sea and the emphasis on diving tourism in Playa del Carmen, street art is reflected in gigantic wall frescoes largely inspired by the underwater world dear to divers passionate about the seas and oceans.

Another initiative as we like them.
