Diving in San Luis Potosi or nearby can be magical.
The spring of La Media Luna, or Half Moon, was considered by Jacques-Yves Cousteau to be one of the best places in the world to learn the techniques of cave diving. It is located in the city of Río Verde, an hour away from the capital San Luis Potosí, and it continues to offer cave diving today.
The uniqueness of the underwater scenery comes from its six craters, overflowing with water. Petrified trees overlook it from a precipice like sleeping giants and there are hundreds of marine species.
La Media Luna is also a magical place, full of history. A fossilized mammoth’s head was brought up from its depths, as were a variety of offerings once deposited there by the ancient settlers in the area who used the spring as a center of worship.
To partake in this adventure you need to be at least 12 years old and to have a scuba diving certificate.
