Scuba diving in Padre Burgos Pier
The Padre Burgos Pier is a popular dive site known for its great opportunities to see and photograph some wonderful tiny creatures. Divers can dive at this site during the day or night, but mostly it is recommended for night diving. There is a huge number of smaller forms of marine life under the town’s pier, but divers need to be warned that there is also quite a bit of trash under the pier. Probably it has something to do with the presence of a lot of hiding places under all the trash, but surprisingly, those little creatures just love this place.
