Pargo Cave

A perfect coral reef for beginners, students of underwater photography and great place for the second shallower dive after a deep one. It has a sculpture, the “Virgen del Carmen“ of a conch shell, more than 2m high underwater to take a keepsake photo of the memory of diving in Playa Del Carmen.

Great variety of marine life, molluscs, crustaceans, coral formations, sandbanks, seaweed meadows, and a big congregation of different types of fish, turtles, rays etc.
