Diving Los Suenos

Diving in the Pacific Ocean offers many unique opportunities to see underwater gems and several species of marine life. Visibility ranges between 10 to 45 feet and it depends on many factors like tides and mostly the high amounts of nutrients in the water that attract many different species of fish. The best conditions are present from December through May when we have the best visibility and the visit of the Giant Manta Ray that come to feed and get cleaned by the reef fish.

Temperatures range from the mid 70's to the mid 80's and depths are between 40 to 90 feet. The Pacific Region has a history of volcanic activity therefore Costa Rica’s Pacific has amazing volcanic rock formations that are home to many different species of soft and hard coral. Amongst the creatures that you will find while diving are the White tip Reef Shark which is a resident in the area and can be found in many of the underwater caves where they rest during the day. Also you may will see moray eels, lobsters, octopus, sea horses, nudibranch, cushion sea stars, big schools of various fish and rays just to name a few.
