Scuba diving in Quepos

Quepos is located on the North Pacific coast, about 37mi/60km south from San Jose. The town is very tourism oriented with well developed tourist infrastructure and dynamic night life. Nevertheless, it preserved its cultural heritage and the traces of Latin America as it was. The town is popular for its beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park. The Park is closed on Mondays and it has limited number of visitors, no more than 600 per day. The underwater landscape consists of volcanic rock formations nursing a variety of species of soft and hard coral. There are also many caves, cliffs, pinnacles and crevasses under water. Their depths range from 40ft/12m to 90ft/27m. And the visibility ranges from 10ft/3m to 45ft/14m and depends on many factors like tides and high amounts of plankton that attract different species of fish. Quepos offers about 15 dive sites. The best dive sites are Pixie Rock, Punta Quepos, Canyon Reef, Las Gemelas and Isla Larga. The abundant marine life in the waters of Quepos includes pufferfish, eels, octopi, manta rays, moray eels, reef fish, turtles and sharks.
