Description of dive site:

Next to the house reef of El Dorado locates Pura Vida dive site.

The entry point is from the shore and can be reached by foot on the beach.
The steady sand slope descends to approx. 18 meters where you find the banca ship wreck.
30 meters to the right lies the first car wreck in approx. 22 meter depth.
Afterwards you turn around and continue in opposite direction for approx. 50 meter where you find the pyramide made of car tyres at 26 meter depth.

Further to the left at the same depth is the second car wreck. Due to the depth below 18 meter this dive spot is not recommended for beginners.

The ascent follows the sandy slope up to the seagrass area which is perfect for the safety stop at 5 meters.



What to be seen:

Lionfish and big snappers hover in and around the wrecks. Moray eels, shrimps, anglerfish and crabs are hiding in holes and niches.

On the sand cuttlefish, sea horses and ghostpipefish can be found.

During safety stop all kind of beautiful surprises can be found in the sea weed.
