The Gulf of Papagayo’s warm tranquil waters will surprise you with its quality and variety of dive sites for beginners and more experienced divers alike. Our area is recognized for quality dive shops and memorable diving experiences. Swim the pacific with frog-fish, manta rays, seahorses, harlequin shrimp, angel fish, octopus and several species of moray eels.
The best diving conditions are usually between May and November, when it is common to enjoy 35 ft. to 80 ft./10 m to 30 m visibility. Costa Rica water temperatures are warm year-round with higher temperatures between May-October and lower between December -March. Dive sites range in depth from 40 feet to over 100 feet so there is something for divers of every skill level to enjoy. They offer daily morning trips to the Catalina Islands, and many beautiful nearby sites like “The Wall” and “The Point.” Afternoon boat dives are also suitable for snorkeling, as they visit shallower sites where everyone can enjoy the beauty of the reef.
