Scuba diving on the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico was a bit of a revelation for us. Located along Pacific Rim of Fire, the often barren coastline and small offshore landmasses were formed by intense volcanic activity.
Our memories of diving the islands ofSocorro, San Benedicto and Roca Partidaare of dramatic rocky landscapes, frisky currents and masses of big animals: day after day we encountered giant pacific manta rays and reef sharks; there were hammerheads, silky sharks bottlenose dolphins and ever more mantas. For the big stuff, this was a superlative destination.
