Atlantida is one of the divers favorites dive. It is a rock platform which is covering half a mile area with different depths and shapes. Atlantida is located 20 minutes boat ride, southwest of Riu Karamboa Hotel. Its reef top welcomes you at around 9 meters and is ideal for divers of all levels. For advanced divers or those who attend the Advanced Open Water Diver course you can find depth by following the reef edge and descending along the wall where you can reach the sandy bottom at 30 meters

When to go

The best time to go is from June to October. The climate is mostly warm (between 25C/77F and 31C/88F) and humid with rainy season is September/October. The water temperatures average from 20C/68F to 25C/77F

What to see

Lobsters, scorpionfish or moray eels can be found there. All over the reef and along its steep wall you will spot yellow tail snappers or big schools of sergeant majors and sea breams. If you like macro life you will be happy to find fire worms, gobies, nudibraches and spider crabs all over the thin layer of coral that covers the reef. Down here you might get lucky to find some nurse sharks resting under overhangs or in cracks within the reef
