Cancun, Mexico, 2007

One of my favorite places to visit is the Yucatán Peninsula where the Azul waters are exquisite to swim in and the soft sand is comforting for long walks on the beach.

What most beachgoers never experience and barely comprehend is the beauty and fascinating aquacultures which reside under the surface of the Caribbean Sea. With proximity and access to spectacular scuba diving off the Palancar Reef, one of the biggest and longest reefs in the world is also home to many different species of fish including, sea turtles, barracuda, moray eels, grouper, parrot fish, nurse sharks as well as distinct and beautiful coral formations.
