Caves, labyrinths, vertical walls, more than 10 sunken ships, all framed between the mysteries and whims of the coral formations full of tropical species and a paradise of submarine photography.
On the zone we have secure diving all year long due to its meteorological and oceanographic conditions, in great transparency of the clean waters that contribute the current of the gulf, allowing a very advantageous visibility.
The temperature of the water is generally high (between 24 and 30 degrees Celsius), with very few cold days (between 14 and 17 degrees Celsius), during the December-February season.

The prevailing currents and temperature are important indicators for the development of different life forms, which allow us to have the largest specimen of column coral (Dendroggyra cilindrus) reported in Latin America. Many divers know it as "Notre Dame" Or "Lady of the Caribbean", for its remarkable majesty and beauty.
