    Exploring the Caribbean's breathtaking underwater world through snorkeling and scuba diving is an experience like no other. While both activities offer glimpses into the vibrant marine life and stunning coral reefs, it's essential to understand their differences.

    Snorkeling is a surface activity where enthusiasts use a mask, snorkel, and fins to observe underwater life while breathing through the snorkel tube. It's relatively easy to start and often requires minimal equipment. Many resorts provide snorkeling gear, and beachside vendors offer rentals for those exploring public beaches.

    Scuba diving, on the other hand, involves descending deeper underwater with the aid of a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCUBA). It requires certification and proper training due to the technical aspects and potential risks involved.

    Sun protection is crucial for both activities, as the Caribbean sun can be intense. Applying sunscreen, wearing protective clothing like a dive skin or long-sleeved shirt, and staying hydrated are essential precautions.
