You plunge into the water and arrive in a different world. Like Alice stepping through the looking glass, you find yourself immersed in a fantastical realm that’s home to creatures you never imagined existed. Schools of psychedelic fish celebrate your arrival by swarming around you, while groupers, nurse sharks and moray eels peer at you from a distance. Blanketing the seafloor beneath them all, a brilliant coral reef bursts with colors you don’t recognize from any box of crayons. To deepen your appreciation for the porous structures, you let gravity and the weight of your breathing apparatus bring you closer to the living rocks. And that’s when you see it, drifting slowly on the seabed, snacking on some greenery sprouting from the sand. Known by locals as a caguama, the loggerhead turtle is known to nest in the area for a few months each year, and that’s why you picked this as the time to visit. Watching the shelled reptile in its natural habitat, you know in your heart that this is the adventure you’ve been waiting for.
