Underwater fishing has been popular in Peru for decades. The Peruvian sea provides excellent fishing, with a large variety of scenarios to practice water sports, which has made underwater fishing one of the most popular sports in coastal cities and ports. The coasts of Pucusana, Paracas and Ilo to the south, and Tumbes and Piura to the north, are the most popular spots among fishermen.
Scuba diving, meanwhile, is not widely practiced in Peru. The coasts do, however, offer ideal conditions, with unexplored beaches, huge schools of Coastal sea fish and colonies of playful sea lions.
Although in few spots along the Peruvian coastline are waters as clear as in the Caribbean or the Atlantic, they are home to a greater diversity of species, making Peru an exceptional place for those looking for a unique and different experience.
