Costa Rica Scuba Diving


Scuba diving off Playa Flamingo , Guanacaste, Costa Rica is truly superb. Water conditions are excellent most of the year, and with plenty of unique dive sites close to the resort, miles of remote coastline and offshore islands, you don’t have to worry about overcrowded diving zones.
One of Costa Rica’s premier scuba diving zones is in close proximity to beautiful Flamingo Beach. Experience the ultimate diving adventure at the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa, the closest dive resort to the Islas Catalinas (Catalina Islands), one of the most fascinating dive sites along the Northern Pacific Coast.
The scuba diving here is amazing, with an abundance of marine life to enjoy. In addition to schools of vibrant tropical fish, you can see giant manta rays, dolphins, sea turtles and eels. Angelfish, parrot fish, puffers, clown shrimp, spotted eagle rays, cow rays, barracuda, and hogfish are also among the many marine dwellers commonly sighted here. Perhaps most exciting are the sharks, including white tips, whale sharks and bulls. The best visibility is often reported during the green season (May – November) averaging from 35 ft to 100 ft / 10m to 30m. Temperatures range from 75 F to 84 F / 30C to 32 C, which makes Costa Rica scuba diving a delightful tropical plunge!

It is an area where divers often find themselves surrounded by large schools of colorful fish. When you dive the Catalinas, you may experience swimming with abundance of manta rays and stingrays.

The formations provide a spectacular variety of marine life from nudibranchs to sharks, with angel fish, jacks, snappers, grunts, octopus and eels in between.

There are several dive spots with depths ranging from 40 ft. to more than 100 ft. Visibility depends upon the levels of plankton and nutrients. It varies from 20 ft. to 100 ft., with an average of 45 ft. approximately.
