Mexico Pt. 4 | Scuba Diving in Laguna de la Media Luna

Halfway between the industrial city center of San Luis Potosi and Huasteca Potosina, there is an oasis in Rioverde. At first, it might look like a beautiful lake, but this lagoon is a natural spring full of beautiful secrets underneath.

We found the nicest couple who run a scuba diving school by the lagoon for us to rent equipment. Feel free to reach out to them using WhatsApp or phone. Very friendly and professional! If you are not already certified, they also provide classes.

We were able to fit in two 45-55 min dives exploring the caves, natural flora, and petrified trees. Enjoy the photos and video at the end!

Nothing like Mexican breakfast buffet before a dive: Enchiladas, eggs made five ways, black beans, refried beans, slow roasted pork and potatoes, and endless cups of coffee

Shots for when we begin the dive. The vegetation forms a wall reaching to the surface of the water

Get to location early and you get to enjoy a clearer dive with less people.

Lurking underneath all the unsuspecting swimmers. I feel like a shark spotting prey.
